Apple is set to announce a new Mac Pro this week, but the company has yet to announce its full lineup of computers.
A Mac Pro may be one of the first products to feature Thunderbolt 3, but that still isn’t all that Apple is announcing at its upcoming event.
The company’s Macs are also expected to feature dual graphics cards, which Apple is still unclear on the specifics of.
While Apple is making a splash at its Mac event, it’s unclear when Macs will get Thunderbolt 3.
The first Thunderbolt 3-equipped Macs won’t be out until sometime in the second half of this year, but it is possible that Apple will announce more Thunderbolt 3 models by then.
We’ve reached out to Apple for more information, but we’re not hearing back.
Apple is also expected a few new Mac Pros this week.
While some of the models listed on Apple’s Mac Pro website aren’t Thunderbolt 3 devices, we do know a few of them, including the Mac Pro “Pro” which features a 1TB PCIe 3.0 drive.
The “Pro”, however, is still not expected to be the final Mac Pro model.
It’s unclear how many models Apple will unveil at its event, but with Thunderbolt 3 now being available to anyone with a Thunderbolt 3 adaptor, it is likely that Apple’s new Macs and Mac Pros will be Thunderbolt 3 compatible.
Apple’s upcoming Mac Pro lineup is expected to include four Thunderbolt 3 cards, and some of those new Mac models are also likely to feature two Thunderbolt 3 ports.
This is a pretty good lineup, especially considering Thunderbolt 3’s relative simplicity.
It should be interesting to see what Apple will offer at its next Mac Pro event, and whether Thunderbolt 3 will be one part of the Mac’s overall Mac Pro product line.
Apple will also be launching its new Mac Mini later this week at its Worldwide Developers Conference in San Francisco.
It is expected that Apple also will unveil a new MacBook Pro and a MacBook Air at this event.
We’ll be keeping our eye on this Mac Pro and MacBook Air lineup for more news.
