Apple's new Mac Pro can accommodate a whopping 1.5TB of RAM. But how much will that much RAM cost you? Take a seat while we find out!
Must read: WWDC 2019: The new Mac Pro
The 1.5TB will be spread across a dozen 128GB DDR4 ECC RAM sticks. As you can imagine this isn't your normal run-of-the-mill RAM that you can just pick up from anywhere. And they're not cheap.
Some of the best pricing I can find puts these 128GB RAM sticks at about $1,500. Yes, each.
So right there you're looking at a cool $18,000 just for the RAM.
And bear in mind that this is some of the best RAM pricing I can find. Apple pricing is likely to be higher, so the bill for 1.5TB of RAM could come to over $20,000.
The new Mac Pro is a monster of a system, and it wouldn't surprise me if the total bill for a fully kitted out rig came to around $50,000.
A full set up could cost $100,000.
That's a lot of money. But it's also a lot of hardware. And it can do a lot of work.
