New Mac Pro could be wildly different

Apple has decided that bigger is not always better when it comes to the powerhouse Mac Pro. A brand-new offering is apparently in the works, and there are major changes afoot – including good news for users who resent the monstrous size of the current version. Rumour has it that Apple is planning on releasing a new Mac Pro that's only HALF the size of the current version.

But, what of the power, we hear you ask? Of course, we wouldn't want to sacrifice performance to get a smaller machine, either – it's called a Pro for a reason. Well, Apple plans to make the smaller model even more powerful, with an upgraded Apple-made M1 silicon chip that will boast a whopping 32 high-performance cores (up from the 28 core Intel chip currently powering the Mac Pro). We imagine this will be an immediate contender for our best computer for graphic design list.
