Apple 12-Core Mac Pro (Review)

8 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its Computers

Many processor cores PCs manufactured by Apple have excellent reviews on average compared to other brands. We also checked the reviews for all PCs (not just many processor cores PCs) and found that Apple also has excellent reviews across its entire range.

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

The smallest maximum internal memory supported by processor of desktop computers of this age and spec is 64GB, the biggest is 770GB, and the average maximum internal memory supported by processor is 610GB. The Apple Mac Pro has a fairly big maximum internal memory supported by processor (768 gigabytes) compared to most of the other desktop computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of computers of a similar spec and age to the Mac Pro is 3GB, the biggest is 8.2TB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 3.3TB. With a discrete graphics adapter memory of 6,144 gigabytes, the Mac Pro has a fairly big discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other PCs that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Media

The storage speed of this PC is Flash, which is typical of many many processor cores PCs that have been available for a comparable time 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

24 Processor Threadss

The Mac Pro is a 24 processor threads PC. Most of the other desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the Mac Pro only have between 6 and 23 processor threadss.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Processor Cache

Across all the PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Mac Pro the processor caches range from 12MB to 30MB, and the average processor cache is 20MB. With a processor cache of 30 megabytes, the Mac Pro has one of the bigger processor caches amongst many processor cores PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Portss

The Apple Mac Pro is a two ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports personal computer.

Chart Edit

Supports One Placement Supported

The number of placements supported by the Apple Mac Pro is more than most personal computers that were released around the same time as it. This desktop computer supports a Vertical placement supported, which is the most frequently supported placement supported supported by many processor cores PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

1 Reason Against

Very Small Internal Memory

The internal memorys of similar spec desktop computers that have been on the market for more than two years range from 4GB to 64GB. With an internal memory of only 12 gigabytes, the Mac Pro has one of the smaller internal memorys amongst many processor cores PCs of this age.

If you want a bigger internal memory then you might want to consider the Apple Mac Pro[plb_3812676_price] (16GB).

4 Other reasons to consider the Apple Mac Pro

Released Over Three Years Ago

This Apple PC has been on the market for over three years.

Average Running Costs

The average 4 year running cost of the Mac Pro is £577 based on typical energy prices and usage levels, which is typical compared to the other 40 many processor cores PCs that have been on the market for more than two years.

Average Total Storage Capacity

The Mac Pro has a pretty average total storage capacity (512 gigabytes) compared to most of the other PCs that have been around for a similar time to the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Average Processor Frequency

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

If this desktop computer processor frequency is too slow for you then you might also want to look at the Apple Mac Pro[plb_3812676_price] (3GHz).
