Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its Desktop Computers

Apple is one of the top rated PC brands according to average reviews from experts and owners, and Apple also has excellent reviews for its many processor core personal computers.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on comparable spec desktop computers that have been available for more than a year.

Chart Edit

Two CPUs Configuration (max)

The Mac Pro takes more CPUs configuration (max) than most of the PCs that have been available for a comparable time to the Mac Pro. This Apple personal computer is a desktop computer that takes two CPUs configuration (max) compared to most of the many processor core personal computers that were released one year ago which only take one CPU configuration (max).

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The storage speed of this desktop computer is Flash, which is the most frequently found storage medium on comparable spec personal computers that came out more than a year 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.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Total Storage Capacity

The total storage capacity of comparable spec desktop computers that have been around for around the same time as the Mac Pro range from 120GB to 2.3TB, and the average total storage capacity is 710GB. At 1,000 gigabyte, the Apple Mac Pro has a quite big total storage capacity compared to most of the other PCs of this type and age.

24 Processor Threads

The Mac Pro is a 24 processor thread personal computer. Most of the other desktop computers of a comparable spec and age to the Mac Pro only have between 6 and 23 processor threads.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Processor Cache

Similar spec PCs that have been around for around the same time as the Mac Pro have processor caches of between 12MB and 30MB. The Apple Mac Pro has one of the bigger processor caches (30 megabytes) amongst desktop computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Short

The average height of many processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time to the Mac Pro is 350mm, and the heights range from 250mm to 580mm. With a height of only 251 millimeters, the Mac Pro is fairly short compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Mac Pro.

At only 167 millimeters, the Mac Pro is quite shallow compared to most of the other personal computers of a similar type and age to the Mac Pro. The depths of comparable spec computers that are a similar age to the Mac Pro range from 160mm to 730mm, and the average depth is 310mm.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Very Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

With a memory clock speed supported by processor of only 800 megahertz, the Apple Mac Pro has a quite slow memory clock speed supported by processor compared to most of the other PCs of this age and spec. The memory clock speeds supported by processors of many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Mac Pro range from 800MHz to 1,600MHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

With a discrete graphics adapter memory of only 2,048 gigabytes, the Mac Pro has one of the smaller discrete graphics adapter memory capacities amongst comparable spec desktop computers of this age. Many processor core personal computers that have been available for more than a year have discrete graphics adapter memory capacities of between 2GB and 8.2TB.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed

The average memory clock speed of many processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year is 2,000MHz, and the memory clock speeds range from 1,600MHz to 2,200MHz. At only 1,866 megahertz, the Apple Mac Pro has a fairly slow memory clock speed compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that were released one year ago.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory

The average maximum internal memory of personal computers of this spec and age is 140GB, and the maximum internal memory range from 32GB to 520GB. At only 64 gigabytes, the Mac Pro has a quite small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been available for around the same time as the Mac Pro.
