Apple 12-Core Mac Pro (Review)

8 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent PC Reviews

Apple is one of the best computer manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and owners, and Apple also has excellent reviews for its many processor cores desktop computers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Modes

This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating modes, which is the most frequently supported processor operating modes on personal computers of a comparable type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Very Big Internal Memory

With an internal memory of 64 gigabytes, the Apple Mac Pro has one of the bigger internal memorys amongst computers of this age. The smallest internal memory of comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Mac Pro is 4GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average internal memory is 25GB.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Media

The storage speed of this personal computer is Flash, which is the most commonly found storage media on similar spec PCs that were released more than two years ago. 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 the storage speed of this personal computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to consider the HP Z640[plb_2520388_price] (SSD) which is also higher rated.

24 Processor Threadss

The Mac Pro has more processor threadss than most of the similar spec computers that are a comparable age to the Mac Pro. Most of the many processor cores desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the Mac Pro only have between 6 and 23 processor threadss, however this personal computer has 24 processor threadss.

Chart Edit

Very Big Processor Cache

The average processor cache of many processor cores desktop computers that have been around for more than two years is 21MB, and the processor caches range from 12MB to 30MB. When compared to other many processor cores desktop computers that are a comparable age to the Mac Pro that we have assessed, the Apple Mac Pro's processor cache of 30 megabytes is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

Supports One Placement Supported

The Apple Mac Pro has a greater number of placements than most PCs of a comparable age and spec to it. This desktop computer supports a Vertical placement supported, which is the most frequently supported placement supported supported by many processor cores desktop computers that came out around the same time as the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Very Light

At only 5 kilograms, the Mac Pro is quite light compared to most of the other desktop computers that were released more than two years ago. Personal computers that were released more than two years ago have weights of between 5kg and 30kg.

Chart Edit

3 Reasons Against

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

With a total storage capacity of only 256 gigabytes, the Mac Pro has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers of this type and age. Comparable spec desktop computers that were released more than two years ago have total storage capacitys of between 180GB and 8.3TB.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

Across all the computers of this age and type the discrete graphics adapter memorys range from 3GB to 8.2TB. The Mac Pro has one of the smaller discrete graphics adapter memorys (only 2,048 gigabytes) amongst many processor cores desktop computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed

Personal computers of a comparable age and type to the Mac Pro have memory clock speeds of between 1,300MHz and 2,200MHz. The Mac Pro has one of the slower memory clock speeds (only 1,866 megahertz) amongst many processor cores desktop computers of this age.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the Apple Mac Pro

Released Over Two Years Ago

Apple released the Mac Pro over two years ago.

Average Processor Frequency

At 2.7 gigahertz, the Mac Pro has a fairly typical processor frequency compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Mac Pro.

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