New Alternative Graphics Cards for Mac Pro

The Apple silicon chip-based Mac Pro won’t be released until next year, so long as Apple isn’t expanding its bigger tower options. We can optimize the configuration of computers with newer graphics cards signed by AMD (RDNA 2 Architecture) in MPX format:

  • Radeon Pro W6800X with 32 GB GDDR6 memory: + € 2,760
  • 2 x Radeon Pro W6800X : +5 980 €
  • Radeon Pro W6800X Duo with 64 GB GDDR6 memory: +5,290 €
  • 2 x Radeon Pro W6800X Duo : + 11 040 €
  • Radeon Pro W6900X with 32 GB GDDR6 memory: + € 6440
  • 2 x Radeon Pro W6900X with 32 GB GDDR6 memory: + € 13,340

According to Jake Crowlow From CNN, which is taken into account, these new graphics cards are expected to deliver up to 23% performance gains for the Mac Pro and up to 84% with Octane X.

With regard to a possible Intel CPU (from the Ice Lake Xeon W-3300 family), which the tower should take advantage of before Apple switches the body and accessories to silicon, it is not yet available. The launch of new graphics options may indicate that you will have to wait a few more weeks/months before placing an order.

Updates – Apple also offers MPX modules for new graphics cards for a single purchase if you already have a Mac Pro. The Radeon Pro W6800X costs €3,220, the Radeon Pro W6800X Duo costs €5,750 and the Radeon Pro W6900X costs €6,900.

New graphics cards according to Apple

For enhanced graphics performance and pro-level applications, choose an AMD Radeon Pro W6800X graphics card with 32 GB of GDDR6 memory, which provides up to 512 GB of memory bandwidth. This configuration incorporates AMD’s RDNA2 architecture and provides computing power of up to 16 teraflops at single precision or 32 teraflops at half precision. It supports six 4K displays, three 5K displays or three Pro Display XDR displays.

The Full Height MPX module fills an MPX bay and uses additional PCIe power and bandwidth to provide the card with four additional Thunderbolt 3 ports and an additional HDMI 2.0 port. You can equip your Mac Pro with two W6800X MPX modules and connect them using Infinity Fabric Link for better multi-GPU performance when using applications like Final Cut Pro. When you select the option with two GPUs, the Infinity Fabric Link connector comes preinstalled on the system.

For the best possible graphics performance and for professional-grade applications, choose an AMD Radeon Pro W6900X graphics card with 32 GB GDDR6 memory, which provides up to 512 GB/s of memory bandwidth. This configuration includes AMD’s RDNA2 architecture and provides computing power of up to 22.2 teraflops at single precision or 44.4 teraflops at half precision. It supports six 4K displays, three 5K displays or three Pro Display XDR displays.

  • Module MPX avec AMD Radeon Pro W6800X Duo

For higher graphics performance, choose the MPX module with the Radeon Pro W6800X Duo, which is ideal for business apps that use multiple graphics processors. The module houses two W6800X GPUs, each with 32 GB of GDDR6 memory and offering 512 GB/s of memory bandwidth. The two GPUs are connected using the on-board Infinity Fabric Link connector, and it is possible to link two W6800X Duo modules to allow the four W6800X GPUs to communicate.

Equip your Mac Pro with two modules to perform intensive tasks such as GPU rendering or advanced calibration. Get 30.2 teraflops of computing power in single precision, or 60.4 teraflops in half precision. The MPX module with the Radeon Pro W6800X Duo supports up to eight 4K displays, four 5K displays or six Pro Display XDR displays. The Full Height MPX module fills an MPX bay and uses additional PCIe power and bandwidth to provide the card with four additional Thunderbolt 3 ports and an additional HDMI 2.0 port. When you select the option with two GPUs, the Infinity Fabric Link connector comes preinstalled on the system.
