Apple today introduced the all-new Mac Pro, a completely redesigned, breakthrough workstation for pros who push the limits of what a Mac can do, and unveiled Apple Pro Display XDR, the world’s best pro display. Designed for maximum performance, expansion and configurability, the all-new Mac Pro features workstation-class Xeon processors up to 28 cores, a high-performance memory system with a massive 1.5TB capacity, eight PCIe expansion slots and a graphics architecture featuring the world’s most powerful graphics card. It also introduces Apple Afterburner, a game-changing accelerator card that enables playback of three streams of 8K ProRes RAW video simultaneously.
Pro Display XDR features a massive 32-inch Retina 6K display with gorgeous P3 wide and 10-bit color, an extreme 1,600 nits of peak brightness, an incredible 1,000,000:1 contrast ratio and a superwide viewing angle, all at a breakthrough price point. Together, the new Mac Pro and Pro Display XDR are the most powerful tools Apple has ever put in the hands of pro customers and will change pro workflows forever.

Ignoring the fact that I don't like apple and that the price will be "groundbreaking", the GPUs, the accelerator card and the panel all make this thing really interesting.
I read as much as I could trying to find the panel type (OLED?), refresh rate or a price, I'm sure someone will find them.
APPLE on May 14, 2019: "he latest security updates and may reduce performance by up to 40 percent" APPLE on June 3, 2019: Releasing long awaited Mac Pro with 28-core Intel Xeon processor powered by 300 watts with a "massive" heatsink.
This is a workstation for MKBHD to make videos about. I feel like its too expensive. Not because of the performance and not because Apple might be overcharging but all these parts put together are simply too expensive. You could probably take TR 2990 + 2 X R7s beat most configurations.
