Here’s Apple’s Latest Mac Pro Debut Sign
Apple’s (NASDAQ:AAPL) long-awaited redesigned Mac Pro may soon become available. As first noted by IDG News Service’s Agam Shah, Apple recently began offering a high-resolution monitor made by Sharp through its Online Apple Store websites for the U.K. and other European countries. However, the monitor has yet to appear on the Online Apple Store for the U.S.
Several industry watchers believe that the newly available display is a sign that the launch of the latest Mac Pro is imminent. According to Apple’s website, the new Mac Pro is capable of powering “up to three high-resolution 4K displays.” However, Apple’s own Thunderbolt Display only has a 2,560 x 1,440 pixel display, which is lower than the 4K resolution that the new Mac Pro is capable of supporting.
According to Sharp’s website, the 32-inch PN-K321 monitor features a 4K ultra high-definition LED display with a “1.07 Billion Color Palette.” The 3,840 x 2,160 pixel display is made possible by Sharp’s IGZO (indium gallium zinc oxide) technology, which allows the monitor to output a resolution that is four times higher than the resolution of a 1080p full HD display. The monitor sells for €3,999, or approximately $5,476, through Apple’s European online stores.
