While Apple will discontinue its existing Mac Pro high-end desktop in Europe and nearby countries later this month as it does not comply with certain local regulations, the absence of Mac Pro on those markets will be temporary. According to a media report, Apple plans to introduce an all-new Mac Pro already this spring.

“We believe, however, that the absence of the Mac Pro is temporary, Apple has informed us that a new Mac Pro will be released in spring, 2013. We will make sure to [introduce] these products,” a letter by a Mac reseller in France published by Mac4Ever web-site reads.

While Apple Mac Pro is among the worst-selling product lines of the company, the high-end desktop remains an ideal choice for companies requiring professional software, high-performance and Apple Mac OS X platform. While current Mac Pro still remains the highest-performing Macintosh ever made, it is based on outdated microprocessors and graphics cards and therefore it is time for a refresh.

At present there are no details available about the new Mac Pro desktop, but everything points to the fact that the new workstation from Apple will be based on Intel Corp.’s forthcoming Xeon E-series and W-series processors powered by Ivy Bridge-EP design as it is simply illogical for the company to utilize last year’s Intel Xeon E5 based on Sandy Bridge-EP technology. Since Intel is expected to introduce the Ivy Bridge-EP only in Q3 2013, actual availability of the new Mac Pro may be delayed. It is also logical to expect the new Mac Pro to utilize latest graphics cards from AMD or Nvidia as well as new breeds of high-end solid-state storage solutions.

Apple did not comment on the news-story.
