Apple 12-Core Mac Pro (Review)

6 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Based on 1,172 user and expert reviews, Apple has excellent reviews for its desktop computers. Apple also has excellent reviews specifically for its many processor cores PCs compared to other brands.

Flash Storage Media

The storage speed of this personal computer is Flash, which is the most frequently found storage media on personal computers of this age and spec. 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 has more processor threadss than most of the similar spec personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Mac Pro. This desktop computer is a 24 processor threads PC compared to most of the computers that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Mac Pro which only have between 6 and 23 processor threadss.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Processor Cache

Across all the computers of this age and type the processor caches range from 12MB to 30MB. At 30 megabytes, the Mac Pro has a quite big processor cache compared to most of the other computers of a similar spec and age to the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

The average discrete graphics adapter memory of computers of this type and age is 4.6GB, and the discrete graphics adapter memory range from 510MB to 8.2GB. When compared to other many processor cores PCs that came out around the same time as the Mac Pro, the discrete graphics adapter memory of the Apple Mac Pro of 6,144 megabytes is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

Supports One Placement Supported

The number of placements supported by the Mac Pro is more than most PCs of a similar age and spec to it. This desktop computer supports a Vertical placement supported, which is the most commonly supported placement supported supported by personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Very Slow Memory Clock Speeds Supported by Processor

The slowest memory clock speeds supported by processor of many processor cores PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Mac Pro is 800MHz and the fastest is 1,600MHz. The Mac Pro has one of the slower memory clock speeds supported by processors (only 800 megahertz) amongst many processor cores PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the Apple Mac Pro has a quite small total storage capacity compared to most of the other computers of this type and age. The total storage capacitys of desktop computers of this spec and age range from 180GB to 8.3TB.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

The average discrete graphics adapter memory of computers of this spec and age is 3.3TB, and the discrete graphics adapter memorys range from 3GB to 8.2TB. At only 2,048 gigabytes, the Mac Pro has a quite small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the Mac Pro.

3 Other reasons to consider the Apple Mac Pro

Released Over Two Years Ago

Apple released the Mac Pro over two years ago.

Average Internal Memory

At 16 gigabytes, the Apple Mac Pro has a fairly standard internal memory compared to most of the other computers of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Average Processor Frequency

The Mac Pro has a fairly average processor frequency (2.7 gigahertz) compared to most of the other personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Mac Pro.

If you want a faster processor frequency then you might also want to consider the Apple Mac Pro (£3,299.00) (3GHz).
