Apple has added a trio of new AMD graphics cards to configurable options for its flagship desktop computer, the Mac Pro. The new modules are based on AMD’s next-generation GPU, the Radeon Pro W6000-series.
The new chips are the Radeon Pro W6800X MPX, Radeon Pro W6800X Duo MPX and Radeon Pro W6900X MPX. The Radeon Pro W6800X has 32GB of GDDR6 memory, as does the more powerful W6900X. The Radeon Pro W6800X Duo has 64GB of GDDR6 memory, which makes sense given that it’s a pair of W6800X cards.
As is the case with the Mac Pro itself, power doesn’t come cheap. The single Radeon Pro W6800X adds $2,400 to the Mac Pro’s $5,999 base price. A second one brings the total add-on cost to $5,200. If you want the W6900X, that’s $5,600 for one GPU and $11,600 for a pair. Rounding out the new options is the Radeon Pro W6800X Duo, which is $4,600 for a single card and $9,600 for two.
The base model of the Mac Pro comes with an older Radeon Pro 580X with 8GB of GDDR5 memory. Upgrading to a Radeon Pro W5500X with 8GB of GDDR6 memory costs $200. Next up is the Radeon Pro W5700X with 16GB of GDDR6 memory for $600. You can get two W5700X graphics cards for $1,600. The next most expensive upgrade is the new Radeon Pro W6800X with 32GB of GDDR6 memory. This is the cheapest way to get 32GB of
