Apple finally launched yesterday the new Mac Pro and its spectacular Pro Display XDR screen, these are two devices designed for professionals and a very high quality and cost which obviously are not intended for all types of users.
Apple's Pro Display XDR screen means the company's return to professional monitors and impressive specifications. Precisely for that, The new 32-inch Pro Display XDR 6K is only compatible with some Macs and MacBooks models Recent However, there is a way to use it with any Mac with Thunderbolt 3, although it will cost you more money.
All Macs compatible with Apple's Pro Display XDR screen
If you were thinking of acquiring only the new Apple panel to work, make sure that you have one of the following models, not all Apple computers are compatible with Apple's new Pro Display XDR screen.
This is the official list of accounting Macs with the Pro Display XDR:
- Mac Pro (2019) with graphics processors in MPX module.
- 15-inch MacBook Pro (2018)
- 16-inch MacBook Pro (2019)
- 21.5-inch iMac (2019)
- 27-inch iMac (2019)
- All Macs with Thunderbolt 3 ports and Blackmagic eGPU or Blackmagic eGPU Pro.
One of the great absences seems to be the iMac Pro, we do not know if it is an error or if you certainly cannot use Apple’s Pro XDR screen natively. Other great absences are the smaller MacBook Pro models which are not natively compatible either.
However, Apple has left a va open for all these devices that in principle are not compatible thanks to Blackmagic eGPUs. If your Mac has Thunderbolt 3 ports, most Macs and MacBooks in recent years have this type of port, podrs use the Apple Pro XDR screen if you also connect an external eGPU.
