But is it change for the sake of change, or a genuinely innovative leap forward?</p> <div class="field field-type-userreference field-field-byline"> <div class="field-label">Byline:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <a href="/users/mark-prigg" title="View user profile.">Mark Prigg</a> </div> </div> </div> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-group-sections"><legend>News Section</legend><fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-0"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> You spin me right round </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>The first thing that strikes you about the new Mac Pro is that is really doesn’t look anything like a computer.</p> <p>The shiny black tube is far smaller in reality than you’d think – a mere 9.9in tall and 6.57in in diameter. There are, we imagine, bigger drinks served in American cinemas.&nbsp;Despite its diminutive frame, Apple's crammed an eye-wateringly long spec list into the Mac Pro, including&nbsp;everything from Xeon processors with up to 12 cores to 64GB of superfast DDR3 memory.</p> <p>There’s something incredibly sci-fi about the Pro's design, from the motion sensor that lights up the port indicators when you move it to the button you press to remove the cover (it’s just a shame Apple couldn’t make it produce a puff of dry ice to finish the effect).</p> <p>There's a point to the Mac Pro's new look – instead of using multiple fans and heat sinks to keep the Pro cool, Apple's used a single fan and positioned the components around a single thermal core that distributes heat evenly. That means that the Mac Pro runs quiet – astonishingly so – though we did notice that it gets quite warm. The cooling system must be working overtime to keep those high-end components in check.</p> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-hcmvideofield-video field-field-brightcove-video"> <div class="field-label">Video ID/URL:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <div class="video-wrapper youtube-player-wrapper"> <iframe width="640" height="385" src="http://www.youtube.com/embed/SQl2FjaKCAQ" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> </div> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image"> <div class="field-label">Image #1:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image" width="3264" height="2448" title="Apple Mac Pro (2013)" alt="Apple Mac Pro (2013)" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/IMG_2008_0.JPG?1382530875" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-filefield field-field-image-2"> <div class="field-label">Image #2:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <img class="imagefield imagefield-field_image_2" width="3264" height="2448" title="Apple Mac Pro (2013)" alt="Apple Mac Pro (2013)" src="http://images.cdn.stuff.tv/sites/stuff.tv/files/IMG_2010_0.JPG?1382530875" /> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-title"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Mac Pro Specs </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-box-out-body-text"> <div class="field-label">Box Out Body Text:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <ul> <li>4-core, 6-core, 8-core or 12-core Intel Xeon processors&nbsp;running at Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.9 GHz</li> <li>2 workstation-class AMD FirePro GPUs with up to&nbsp;12GB of video memory provide up to seven teraflops of compute power</li> <li>PCIe-based flash storage that delivers sequential read speeds up to 1.2GBps and is up to 10 times faster than conventional desktop hard drives</li> <li>ECC DDR3&nbsp;RAM running at 1866 MHz, with a four-channel memory controller, gives the new Mac Pro up to 60GBps of memory&nbsp;</li> <li>4 USB 3 ports</li> <li>6 Thunderbolt 2 ports - upto 36 devices can be daisychained to these</li> </ul> </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-make-full-width"> <div class="field-label">Make full width:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Do not make full width </div> </div> </div> </fieldset> <fieldset class="content-multigroup-wrapper content-multigroup-1"><div class="field field-type-number-integer field-field-section-paginate"> <div class="field-label">Paginate on this section:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Don't paginate </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-title"> <div class="field-label">Title:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> Quiet riot </div> </div> </div> <div class="field field-type-text field-field-body"> <div class="field-label">Body:&nbsp;</div> <div class="field-items"> <div class="field-item odd"> <p>Of course, the Mac Pro isn't aimed at the casual computer user; those 12-core Xeons will be put to work in edit suites, VFX studios and other processor-intensive environments.&nbsp;We've put the computer through its paces with some real time 3D rendering, and the results are astonishing; complex scenes are rendered almost instantly, many of which would take several minutes on current high-end kits.</p> <p>We also played with the Mac Pro using two large 4K monitors, although the Pro can drive four.</p> <p>Music production is likely to be one of the Mac Pro’s big markets – Apple has been testing the machine with Stuart Price, the man behind Lady Gaga and The Killers' latest albums.

You can drag words from ebooks to Pages - man, it's going to be so easy to plagiarise great stuff!</p> <p><strong>18:16&nbsp;</strong>The rest of what we're hearing is straight outta WWDC. Check out our&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/apple/os-x-mavericks-109/review">Mavericks preview</a>&nbsp;here for more detail.</p> <p><strong>18:15&nbsp;</strong>The talk is pretty techie. Mavericks can use OpenCL to leverage the computing power of graphics chips - apparently, this'll improve performance with certain tasks by 1.8x.</p> <p><strong>18:14&nbsp;</strong>If you stick Mavericks on the latest 13in MacBook Air, Craig reckons you'll get an extra hour of web browsing or 1.5 hours of iTunes video out of it.</p> <p><strong>18:13&nbsp;</strong>Mavericks is the 10th OS X. "We wanted to upgrade your hardware with code".</p> <p><strong>18:12&nbsp;</strong>Craig 'The Hair' Federighi has hit the stage.

Now Tim Cook's talking Mac.</p> <p><strong>18:08&nbsp;</strong>Tim's talking iTunes Radio. 20 million users have listened to a billion songs in a month. When do we get it in the rest of the world, Tim?</p> <p><strong>18:08&nbsp;</strong>5 days after launch, over 200 million people were using iOS 7 - Tim says nearly two thirds of iOS users are on iOS 7 right now.</p> <p><strong>18:07&nbsp;</strong>The Americans are clapping at the people queuing. That's cheering people waiting in line for a phone. Madness.</p> <p><strong>18:06&nbsp;</strong>(It's still total madness if you ask us, and we love these gadgets too.)</p> <p><strong>18:06&nbsp;</strong>Say what you like, Android fans - on this video, there are huge numbers of people queuing for iPhones. Who queued for an&nbsp;<a href="http://www.stuff.tv/htc-one/review">HTC One</a>?</p> <p><strong>18:05&nbsp;</strong>We're starting with iPhone. The 5s and 5c launch was the biggest ever - 9 million were sold in the first weekend. That's many, many phones.<strong>&nbsp;</strong></p> <p><strong>&nbsp;</strong><strong>18:03</strong>&nbsp;...and here's Tim Cook. Back in black, again.</p> <p><strong>18:03&nbsp;</strong>We saw this Apple philosophy video at WWDC - 'There are a thousand nos for every yes'</p> <p><strong>18:00&nbsp;</strong>The Kings of Leon finish... and we're on.
