Software developer and designer Arun Venkatesan has taken a look at the smart thermal management features of the upcoming 2019 Mac Pro.
He also shows some of the past Mac technology Apple has drawn on in the design of the Mac Pro and its accompanying monitor …
The 2019 Mac Pro of course draws heavily from the design of the Power Mac G5, aka the cheese-grater Mac Pro. Venkatesan notes that the machine was one of the very first tower computer systems to create multiple thermal zones within the casing for more efficient thermal management.
Apple takes a similar approach with the new design.
The lattice grille is also key to heat dissipation, a clever design meaning that it’s actually more air than metal.
Venkatesan also notes that the Pro Display XDR’s stand looks kind of familiar.
The whole piece is well worth reading.
