According to media reports, Apple will use its own brand of high-capacity solid-state drive (SSD) in its next-generation Mac Pro desktop.
Recently Apple’s Far Eastern suppliers exposed the first batch of the 2TB capacity solid-state drives with Apple logo. Its size is 3.5-inch, and it uses SATA interface, as the iMac products uses the 2.5-inch hard drive in order to save space, so the industry widespreadly speculate that it will be used to the new Mac Pro desktops for professional graphics and video fields. It is said that the new Mac Pro will be released later this year.
The current sold Mac Pro supports up to 8TB mechanical hard drive (made up by 4 pieces 7200rpm 2TB hard drives), the maximum capacity of the solid-state drive is only 512GB, and it’s with 3.5-inch size and SATA card slot.
Apple CEO Cook confirmed in the mail last year, the Mac Pro that has remained the same for many years will be upgraded in 2013. Now as the fan assembly is substandard, the Mac Pro has been off the shelf in Europe.
