The Mac Pro will be released and go on sale on Thursday, Dec. 19, and will cost $2,999 for the quad-core variant. The six-core version starts at $3,999.

Apple CEO Tim Cook on Wednesday shared an image of the Mac Pro assembly line in Austin, Texas, on Twitter. 

“We have begun manufacturing the Mac Pro in Austin. It’s the most powerful Mac ever. Orders start tomorrow,” he wrote, confirming it will be released Thursday.

Apple first announced the new cylindrical-shaped desktop computer back in June at the WDDC and offered a price in October.

According to The Verge, the Mac Pro has Xeon E5 processors, 64GB of RAM, and AMD FirePro graphics cards. It also has up to 1 terabyte of solid-state storage. 

Reports say that with the full customization options, the Mac Pro could cost as much as $10,000.

All Mac Pros will be running OS X Mavericks 10.9.

Apple says that the new computer can generate “up to eight times” more graphics performance than previous models, the Independent reported.
