Mac Pro with Apple Silicon will be its least customizable version

The mighty Mac Pro is the only product in the American tech lineup that hasn’t yet migrated to Apple Silicon. The company has already confirmed that this update will arrive and many analysts believe that it will happen in 2023.

Little by little we are receiving information that paints the scenario of what the future of the Mac Pro will be like. But the various indications show that this will be the Mac Pro with the least possibility of changing its components.

The next Mac Pro may lack user-upgradeable GPUs in addition to non-upgradeable RAM. At this time, Apple Silicon Macs do not support external GPUs and you must use whatever configuration you purchase from Apple’s website. But the Mac Pro GPU will be powerful with up to 76 colors.

The new Mac Pro will not support external graphics cards

The most recent information about this product tells us that it will not be possible to connect external graphics cards to the next Mac Pro. A figure revealed by the well-known journalist Mark Gurman.

Since the genesis of the Mac Pro, Apple has given its users the ability to connect external graphics cards according to their needs. However, this reality will disappear with the transition to an M-line processor model.

The same will happen with other vital components, namely the RAM and the CPU. The only point that, according to all indications, can be changed after buying the new Mac Pro will be its storage.

Even so, it is important to know how Apple will allow the modification of this component. Will there be a proprietary connector that will only be sold by the company or will they make their product compatible with the M.2 PCIe NVMe standard?

M2 Ultra for Mac Pro could reach 76 GPU cores

Going back to the Mac Pro GPU, although the company does not allow mods, its offering should be enough for all users. Also according to Mark Gurman, his chip M2 Ultra should boast an impressive 76 graphics cores.

This will not be the base configuration of the M2 Ultra, which, apparently, will be the processor present in the expected Mac Pro. Judging by what happened with Mac Studio, this configuration could start with 24 cores.

The maximum of 76 cores can be reached through additional configurations when purchasing the product. That is, if you want to enjoy maximum graphics performance, you will have to pay extra for it.

Finally, the well-known journalist points out that the new Mac Pro does not bring aesthetic novelties. Despite the transition to Apple Silicon, the new computer will arrive with the same design as the last model presented.
