Mac Pro's New Radeon Pro W6000 Graphics Modules Now Available for Standalone Purchase

Apple today began offering new high-end AMD Radeon Pro W6000 series graphics options for brand new Mac Pro configurations, and now the graphics modules are available for purchase on a standalone basis for customers who already own the computer.

Three new MPX modules are available for the latest Mac Pro, including the Radeon Pro W6800X for $2,800, the Radeon Pro W6800X Duo for $5,000, and the Radeon Pro W6900X for $6,000. Apple says customers can install up to two of the modules in a Mac Pro using Infinity Fabric Link technology for enhanced multi-GPU performance in applications like Final Cut Pro.

Announced in June, AMD said the Radeon Pro W6800 graphics module delivers up to 79% faster graphics performance than the previous-generation Radeon Pro W5700, although this was based on a test system powered by an AMD Ryzen 9 5950X processor rather than an Intel processor. The W6800 also features 32GB of high-speed GDDR6 memory.

The current Intel-based Mac Pro was released in December 2019 in both tower and rack versions. Apple is reportedly working on a new Mac Pro powered by an Apple silicon chip with up to 32 high-performance cores and up to 128-core graphics.

This is such a weird page to scroll through $1000 stands, $300 feet, $700 wheels, $70 hard drive cables, $2800 SSD kits.

It's like when once a year, I get drunk and browse the Porsche vehicle configurator page and look at the options and start to think "$8,000 for a radio seems like a fair price"

I know right? Apple. The original scalper.

$6000 huh, wow... should come with an oscar nomination on the side.
It would appear you two have no clue about the cost of truly professional gear used by real professionals.

Clearly there's a market for these among the pro's who use them, but Apple needs to really get the Apple Silicon out for the pro markets. The proof-of-concept consumer machines are out and basically proven with no major bugs. Time to give us 16" MBP, iMac Pro, Mac Pro with Apple Silicon
Pros don’t want Apple silicon until the software is there. It’s not and won’t be for a while.

The prices do not seem bad to me considering what the normal AMD Workstation W6800 costs, which is $2500 at B&H. I'd rather pay a bit more for the MPX form factor anyway because it integrates into the entire system better. Anyway, I ordered a 6800X Duo and I am expecting it to slam my current 580x into the dirt.
