Tim Cook confirms updated Mac Pro coming in 2013
Apple confirmed that its CEO Tim Cook sent an e-mail to a Facebook group page dedicated to the Mac Pro on Monday and said that the company is indeed "working on something really great" for 2013, allaying current Mac Pro owners' fears that the desktop has reached its end of life.
The slightly updated Mac Pro presented by Apple at WWDC on Monday wasn't the significant revamp. The machines received 12-core Xeon chips, but CPUs are based on Intel's two-year-old Westmere-EP architecture and not newer Xeon E5 silicon. Professional users were hoping for something more significant and impressive.
The email in full:
