64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on many processor core computers that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is Flash, which is the most commonly found storage medium on comparable spec personal computers 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.

Chart Edit

Very Fast Processor Clock Speed

When compared to other computers that were launched around the same time as the Mac Pro, the Mac Pro's processor clock speed of 3.5 gigahertz is one of the fastest. The processor clock speeds of many processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Mac Pro range from 1.6GHz to 3.7GHz.

Chart Edit

Two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Ports

Most personal computers of this spec and age have between one and two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports, including the Apple Mac Pro which has two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

PCs that were launched around the same time as the Mac Pro have discrete graphics adapter memory of between 510MB and 8.2GB. At 6,144 megabytes, the Mac Pro has a quite big discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other similar spec PCs that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency

The Mac Pro has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies (3.9 gigahertz) amongst many processor core computers of this age. Across all the many processor core computers that are a similar age to the Mac Pro the maximum turbo frequencies range from 2.5GHz to 4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.5GHz.

Chart Edit

Supports One Case Placement

The Mac Pro has a greater number of placements than most desktop computers of this age and spec. This PC supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most commonly supported case placement supported by computers of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Very Short

At only 251 millimeters, the Mac Pro is fairly short compared to most of the other computers that were launched around the same time as the Mac Pro. The heights of similar spec computers that have been available for around the same time as the Mac Pro range from 250mm to 580mm.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

The widths of many processor core computers that were launched around the same time as the Mac Pro range from 160mm to 450mm. At only 167 millimeters, the Apple Mac Pro is fairly narrow compared to most of the other many processor core computers that are a comparable age to the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

With a depth of only 167 millimeters, the Mac Pro is fairly shallow compared to most of the other PCs of this type and age. The average depth of similar spec PCs that are a comparable age to the Mac Pro is 350mm.

Chart Edit

4 Reasons Against

Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

With a max internal memory supported processor of only 256 gigabytes, the Mac Pro has one of the smaller max internal memory supported processors amongst personal computers of this age. The average max internal memory supported processor of PCs of a comparable age and type to the Mac Pro is 620GB.

Chart Edit

Only One CPU Configuration (max)

The Mac Pro is a computer that takes one CPUs configuration (max).

Chart Edit

Very Small L3 Cache

At only 12 megabytes, the Mac Pro has a quite small L3 cache compared to most of the other desktop computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Mac Pro. The L3 caches of PCs that have been available for around the same time as the Mac Pro range from 12MB to 30MB, and the average L3 cache is 20MB.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Processor Cache

The average processor cache of similar spec computers that are a comparable age to the Mac Pro is 20MB. When compared to other desktop computers that were released around the same time as the Mac Pro that we have assessed the processor cache of, the Mac Pro's processor cache of only 12 megabytes is one of the smallest.
