Apple to update Mac Pro line this spring

According to sources close to Apple, the US tech giant will soon introduce an updated line of its high-end Mac Pro desktop computers.

The update will solve several important problems for Apple – first, the current generation of Mac Pro computers does not meet European regulations and hence cannot be sold in the European Union; second – it features outdated processors and video cards and needs a refresh.

So the new generation of Mac Pro desktops is expected sometime this spring. It will be based on Intel’s upcoming Xeon E-series and W-series processors based on Ivy Bridge-EP cores. Furthermore the new Mac Pro machines will house the latest graphics solutions by both AMD and NVIDIA.

There’s a small problem with the new Mac Pro generation though – as the Intel Ivy Bridge-EP cores are expected in Q3 2013 this could mean that the new generation of Mac Pro computers may get delayed but this remains to be seen.
