Quick Demos

Showcase the new design
• Highlight the new design that’s compact and quiet, yet packs incredible performance inside.

Show the expansion ports
• Point out that the six Thunderbolt 2 ports provide tremendous expansion. Each port supports 20Gb/s of bandwidth and up to six devices daisy chained for a total of 36 devices, making it the most expandable Mac.
• You can connect displays, storage, video and audio I/O devices, and even PCIe expansion chassis to support existing PCIe cards.

Show off the performance
• Open Final Cut Pro X and play a sample project. Final Cut Pro X is one of many apps optimized to take advantage of the dual GPUs in the Mac Pro to deliver incredible performance.
• Launch Aperture. Launching large apps and loading a big photo library is snappy thanks to the ultrafast flash storage. Click through a photo library. Mac Pro handles demanding graphics applications with speed and fluidness.
• Browse the web, open email, navigate maps—everything you do on the system is fast and responsive, thanks to the powerful multi-core Xeon processor, dual workstation-class GPUs, and ultrafast PCIe-based flash storage.
