Many processor core PCs built by Apple have excellent ratings on average. We also checked the reviews for all computers (not just many processor core PCs) and found that Apple also has excellent ratings across its entire range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many personal computers of this type and age.
Flash Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is Flash, which is typical of many comparable spec computers that are a similar 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.
20 Processor Threads
The Mac Pro Late 2013 is a 20 processor thread personal computer. Most of the other many processor core PCs that were launched more than two years ago have between 6 and 23 processor threads.
Fairly Big Processor Cache
The processor caches of comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to the Mac Pro Late 2013 range from 12MB to 30MB. The Apple Mac Pro Late 2013 has one of the bigger processor caches (25 megabytes) amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age.
2 Reasons Against
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This computer supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is typical of many many processor core PCs that are a similar age to it.
Very Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
Many processor core PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Mac Pro Late 2013 have discrete graphics adapter memory of between 510MB and 8.2GB, and the average discrete graphics adapter memory is 4.1GB. At only 2,048 megabytes, the Mac Pro Late 2013 has a quite small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other comparable spec computers that have been available for around the same time as the Mac Pro Late 2013.
4 Other reasons to consider the Apple Mac Pro Late 2013
Released Over Two Years Ago
This desktop computer was released over two years ago.
Average Processor Clock Speed
The Mac Pro Late 2013 has a fairly average processor clock speed (3 gigahertz) compared to most of the other PCs that were released around the same time as the Mac Pro Late 2013.
Average Internal Memory
At 16 gigabytes, the Mac Pro Late 2013 has a fairly typical internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar type and age to the Mac Pro Late 2013.
+2 Other reasons
Average Total Storage Capacity
At 256 gigabytes, the Mac Pro Late 2013 has a pretty average total storage capacity compared to most of the other many processor core PCs that have been around for a similar time to the Mac Pro Late 2013.
