Fairly Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

The Mac Pro has one of the bigger discrete graphics adapter memorys (6,144 gigabytes) amongst many processor cores desktop computers of this age. The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of desktop computers that were launched more than two years ago is 3GB, the biggest is 8.2TB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 3.4TB.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Media

The storage speed of this personal computer is Flash, which is the most commonly found storage media on personal computers of a similar type and age 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.

If you want a PC with a faster storage speed then you might also want to consider the HP Z640 (SSD and higher rated).
