Apple 12-Core Mac Pro (Review)

3 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Many processor cores PCs produced by Apple have excellent reviews on average. We also checked the reviews for all personal computers (not just many processor cores PCs) and found that Apple also has excellent reviews across its entire range.

Flash Storage Media

The storage speed of this personal computer is Flash, which is the most commonly found storage media on desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to it. Flash Drives store information in transistors on a circuit board rather than on optical or magnetic media. This has the advantage of being much faster than a traditional HDD drive.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Processor Cache

PCs that came out around the same time as the Mac Pro have processor caches of between 12MB and 30MB. The Mac Pro has one of the bigger processor caches (30 megabytes) amongst desktop computers of this age.

Chart Edit

2 Reasons Against

Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

When compared to other PCs of a similar age and spec to the Mac Pro, the discrete graphics adapter memory of the Mac Pro of only 3 gigabytes is one of the smallest. The discrete graphics adapter memorys of many processor cores PCs that are a similar age to the Mac Pro range from 3GB to 8.2TB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 3.3TB.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the Mac Pro has one of the smaller total storage capacitys amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age. The smallest total storage capacity of comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Mac Pro is 180GB, the biggest is 8.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 760GB.

It may also be worth also looking at one of the other 256GB total storage capacity computers currently available including the HP Z640 which has better reviews.

3 Other reasons to consider the Apple Mac Pro

Released Over Two Years Ago

This desktop computer was released over two years ago.

Average Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 32 gigabytes, the Apple Mac Pro has a fairly standard internal memory compared to most of the other many processor cores PCs that are a similar age to the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Average Processor Frequency

The Apple Mac Pro has a relatively average processor frequency (2.7 gigahertz) compared to most of the other computers of a similar age and type to the Mac Pro.

If this personal computer processor frequency is too slow for you then you might also want to consider the Apple Mac Pro (£3,299.00) (3GHz).
