The Apple 2019 Mac Pro is a serious workhorse machine costing up to US$50000. I am sure Apple will sell plenty of that model to Hollywood studios and similar.
MONEY SAVING TIP: order your Mac Pro with 32GB memory, then upgrade with OWC memory for Mac Pro. In the past, you could get TWICE the memory for about the same price.
But for most of us, here are some minimal recommendations. for buying (thank you for buying through my links to B&H Photo).
- minimum 12 core CPU (if all you need is 8 cores ,consider the 2019 iMac 5K unless there are other features in a Mac Pro that make only 8 CPU cores worthwhile).
- minimum 96GB memory but order with 32B, then add OWC memory for 2019 Mac Pro.
- minimum 2TB SSD
