Chart Edit

Flash Storage Media

The storage speed of this personal computer is Flash, which is typical of many PCs of a comparable age and type 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 the storage speed of this computer is not fast enough for you then you might want to look at the HP Z640[plb_2520388_price] (SSD) which also has a higher rating.

Very Fast Processor Frequency

The slowest processor frequency of personal computers that have been around for more than two years is 1.6GHz and the fastest is 3.7GHz. The Apple Mac Pro has a fairly fast processor frequency (3.5 gigahertz) compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Portss

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

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Processor Boost Frequency

The processor boost frequencys of PCs of a similar age and spec to the Mac Pro range from 2.5GHz to 4GHz. The Mac Pro has a fairly fast processor boost frequency (3.9 gigahertz) compared to most of the other many processor cores desktop computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Supports One Placement Supported

3 Reasons Against

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

At only 256 gigabytes, the Apple Mac Pro has a quite small maximum internal memory supported by processor compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type. The average maximum internal memory supported by processor of personal computers of this age and type is 610GB.

Chart Edit

Only One CPU Configuration (max)

Most PCs that are a comparable age to the Mac Pro take one CPU configuration (max), including the Mac Pro which takes one CPU configuration (max).

Chart Edit

Quite Small Processor Cache

PCs that came out more than two years ago have processor caches of between 12MB and 30MB. When compared to other computers of this age and spec that we have assessed the processor cache of, the Mac Pro's processor cache of only 12 megabytes is one of the smallest.
