One of the biggest reveals of WWDC 2019 was the new Mac Pro.
And while the monster GPU, 3x simultaneous 8K stream capabilities 1.5TB RAM support and 1,400 watt power supply were impressive I guess, the defining feature of this absolute unit was definitely its aesthetic. It basically looks like a giant cheese grater.
So one internet hero decided to see how a replica Mac Pro chassis would actually go at actually grating cheese.
It’s been over a year since Apple last teased the Mac Pro, a major refresh to its traditionally priciest and most powerful computer. And finally—finally! The successor to the “trashcan” is here and it looks a lot like a cheese grater (it also looks like it’s potentially very powerful).
YouTuber Winston Moy took the time to recreate (and perfect) the design before building it out of aluminium.
After some tweaking to optimise the design and make it work properly in the real world - the Mac Pro cheese grater was ready to go.
Using a wedge of reportedly delicious pecorino romano as his test subject, Moy gives his creation a crack. Here's what happened.
We still don't have local pricing for the Mac Pro, but you best believe it will be north of $10,000 before you start adding on the display and $US1,000 stand. Real cheese graters will of course be sold separately.
