Apple 12-Core Mac Pro (Review)
Apple WWDC 2013 - Mac Pro 2013 Introduction

5 Reasons For

Excellent Brand

Apple is one of the best PC manufacturers according to average user and expert reviews, and Apple also has excellent ratings for its many processor cores desktop computers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Modes

This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating modes, which is the most commonly supported processor operating modes on many processor cores desktop computers that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Media

The storage speed of this PC is Flash, which is typical of many many processor cores desktop computers that have been around for more than two years. 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 too slow for you then you might also want to look at the HP Z640[plb_2520388_price] (SSD) which is also higher rated.

Quite Fast Processor Frequency

The Mac Pro has one of the faster processor frequencys (3.5 gigahertz) amongst desktop computers of this age. The slowest processor frequency of personal computers of this age and spec is 1.6GHz, the fastest is 3.7GHz, and the average processor frequency is 2.9GHz.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The weights of many processor cores desktop computers that were released more than two years ago range from 5kg to 30kg. The Apple Mac Pro is quite light (only 5 kilograms) compared to most of the other similar spec desktop computers that were launched around the same time as the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Very Slow Memory Clock Speeds Supported by Processor

The Mac Pro has one of the slower memory clock speeds supported by processors (only 800 megahertz) amongst computers of this age. The average memory clock speeds supported by processor of similar spec computers that were launched more than two years ago is 1,100MHz.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory Supported by Processor

The smallest maximum internal memory supported by processor of many processor cores desktop computers that have been around for more than two years is 64GB and the biggest is 770GB. The Mac Pro has one of the smaller maximum internal memory supported by processors (only 256 gigabytes) amongst personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed

Computers that are a similar age to the Mac Pro have memory clock speeds of between 1,300MHz and 2,200MHz. At only 1,866 megahertz, the Mac Pro has a fairly slow memory clock speed compared to most of the other many processor cores desktop computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Small Processor Cache
