Computers manufactured by Apple generally have excellent ratings compared to other brands.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many medium processor core personal computers that were launched more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

Medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than two years have max memory bandwidth supported processor of between 10GB/s and 68GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 30GB/s. The Apple Mac Pro has a fairly fast max memory bandwidth supported processor (59.7 gigabytes per second) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

At 256 gigabytes, the Mac Pro has a quite big max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other computers of this spec and age. The smallest max internal memory supported processor of medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago is 2GB, the biggest is 770GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 88GB.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

Across all the PCs of a similar age and spec to the Mac Pro the discrete graphics adapter memory capacities range from 1GB to 6.2TB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 2TB.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The Mac Pro has a Flash storage medium which is faster than the HDD storage medium found on most PCs of a comparable spec 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. The storage speed of all comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for a similar time to the Mac Pro ranges from HDD (worst) to SSD (best).

Chart Edit

Very Fast Processor Clock Speed

The Mac Pro has one of the faster processor clock speeds (3.7 gigahertz) amongst computers of this age. Medium processor core personal computers that came out more than two years ago have processor clock speeds of between 1GHz and 4.1GHz, and the average processor clock speed is 3.1GHz.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Internal Memory

The Apple Mac Pro has one of the bigger internal memory (12 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. Medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than two years have internal memory of between 2GB and 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.5GB.

Chart Edit

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This desktop computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most frequently supported PCI Express slots version on medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Gold EPEAT Compliance

This personal computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many desktop computers that were launched around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Ports

Chart Edit

10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology

This PC has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is typical of many computers of this age and spec.

Chart Edit

Two Discrete Graphics Adapters

Most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been around for around the same time as the Mac Pro only have one discrete graphics adapter, however the Apple Mac Pro has two discrete graphics adapters.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Maximum Internal Memory

Medium processor core personal computers that have been around for more than two years have maximum internal memory of between 2GB and 260GB. With a maximum internal memory of 64 gigabytes, the Mac Pro has a fairly big maximum internal memory compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that have been on the market for a similar time to the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Processor Cache

Desktop computers of a comparable age and spec to the Mac Pro have processor caches of between 0.51MB and 10MB. The Apple Mac Pro has a fairly big processor cache (10 megabytes) compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Memory Clock Speed

With a memory clock speed of 1,866 megahertz, the Mac Pro has one of the faster memory clock speeds amongst PCs of this age. Personal computers that were released around the same time as the Mac Pro have memory clock speeds of between 1,000MHz and 2,200MHz.
