    Apple has recently begun to show the teaser video for the upcoming Mac Pro in movie theaters across the nation. Originally shown at WWDC during the initial debut of the Mac Pro, the video shows the sleek black curves of the product from multiple angles. According to several reports from people who have seen the teaser, it ends with the line “Fall 2013,” offering the first concrete piece of information regarding the launch timeframe of the redesigned Mac Pro. Previously at WWDC, Apple gave the product a “later this year” release date.

    The recent Mac Pro is a fraction of the size of the previous model and housed in a completely redesigned tower. It is said to come equipped with Intel Xeon E5 processors with up to 12 cores, dual workstation AMD FirePro GPUs, and new PCIe flash storage.

    Those of you who are interested in watching the teaser video can do so below:

    According to the Cupertino California company, the new Mac Pro is 2.5 times faster than the current Mac Pro, though benchmarks of the 12-core Xeon E5-2697 v2 processor have demonstrated mixed results, with the latest offering evidence that the Mac Pro will certainly offer a significant improvement over its predecessor, especially during demanding multi-threaded tasks. As of right now, it remains unclear whether Apple might debut the Mac Pro in the fall months. The company is currently expected to hold an event for the iPhone 5S and the rumored iPhone 5C on September 10 with an iPad event to follow shortly after. The Mac Pro could potentially surface at another time. Apple hasn’t announced pricing for the product, which is currently being assembled in the United States.
