There have been rumors that Apple will be rolling out the next refresh of their out of date Mac Pro over the coming months. The latest report comes from Mac Daily News who said they received a tip on the upcoming release.
Apple never confirm any rumours however the refresh is long overdue. The current range of Mac Pro desktop computers are running with USB 2.0 only ports, Firewire 800 and last generation SATA 3GBps connectors. They also have yet to adopt the Thunderbolt connectors which features on the latest MacBook laptop computers.
To make matters worse the Mac Pro has not been available in Europe now for some time due to Regulatory requirements. You can read more on this over here. “[Mac Pros] are not compliant with Amendment 1 of regulation IEC 60950-1, Second Edition which becomes effective on this date.”
We are sure that the new Mac Pros will adopt the latest Intel Xeon architecture and motherboard technology which will obviously include USB 3.0 ports, SATA 6Gbps connectors and Thunderbolt connectors.
Kitguru says: A long overdue refresh, but we aren’t so sure that this rumor has any weight behind it.
