Stunning New Design.Mac Pro is the professional desktop computer reinvented from the inside out. Arranging the most advanced technologies available around a unified thermal core allowed us to make...
Apple has excellent average ratings for its many processor core PCs as well as across its entire desktop computer range.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as it.
Very Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
At 768 gigabytes, the Mac Pro Late 2013 has a very big max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other many processor core PCs that were launched around the same time as the Mac Pro Late 2013. The smallest max internal memory supported processor of personal computers of a similar age and type to the Mac Pro Late 2013 is 64GB and the biggest is 770GB.
Flash Storage Medium
The storage speed of this computer is Flash, which is the most frequently found storage medium on computers of this age and type. 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.
Quite Big Internal Memory
With an internal memory of 32 gigabytes, the Mac Pro Late 2013 has one of the bigger internal memory amongst computers of this age. The smallest internal memory of many processor core PCs that came out around the same time as the Mac Pro Late 2013 is 4GB, the biggest is 64GB, and the average internal memory is 22GB.
Six VGA (D-Sub) Ports
The Mac Pro Late 2013 has more VGA (D-Sub) ports than most of the computers of this type and age. Most of the many processor core PCs that are a comparable age to the Mac Pro Late 2013 only have between one and five VGA (D-Sub) ports, however this desktop computer has six VGA (D-Sub) ports.
+3 More reasons for
20 Processor Threads
Most many processor core PCs that have been on the market for more than two years have between 6 and 23 processor threads, including the Mac Pro Late 2013 which has 20 processor threads.
The average weight of personal computers of this type and age is 12kg. With a weight of only 5 kilograms, the Mac Pro Late 2013 is quite light compared to most of the other comparable spec desktop computers that were released around the same time as the Mac Pro Late 2013.
7 Reasons Against
Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor
The slowest memory clock speed supported by processor of many processor core PCs that have been around for more than two years is 800MHz, the fastest is 1,600MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor is 1,100MHz. The Mac Pro Late 2013 has one of the slowest memory clock speeds supported by processors (only 800 megahertz) amongst many processor core PCs of this age.
Only Four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A Ports
Most comparable spec PCs that were launched around the same time as the Mac Pro Late 2013 have between two and seven USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports, including the Mac Pro Late 2013 which has four USB 3.0 (3.1 Gen 1) Type-A ports.
Only 10 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN Data Rate
This PC supports a 10|100|1000 Mbit/s Ethernet LAN data rate, which is typical of many personal computers of this spec and age.
Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of PCs that have been on the market for more than two years is 510MB and the biggest is 8.2GB. When compared to other many processor core PCs that were released more than two years ago that we have checked the discrete graphics adapter memory of, the Mac Pro Late 2013's discrete graphics adapter memory of only 2,048 megabytes is one of the smallest.
+4 More reasons against
Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed
Across all the personal computers of this spec and age the memory clock speeds range from 1,300MHz to 2,200MHz. The Mac Pro Late 2013 has one of the slower memory clock speeds (only 1,866 megahertz) amongst many processor core PCs of this age.
Only Four USB 3.0 Ports
The Apple Mac Pro Late 2013 is a four USB 3.0 port computer. Most of the other many processor core PCs that have been around for a comparable time to the Mac Pro Late 2013 have between two and seven USB 3.0 ports.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
The Mac Pro Late 2013 has one of the smaller maximum internal memory (only 64 gigabytes) amongst similar spec personal computers of this age. Similar spec desktop computers that have been on the market for more than two years have maximum internal memory of between 32GB and 520GB.
3 Other reasons to consider the Apple Mac Pro Late 2013
Released Over Two Years Ago
This many processor core desktop computer has been on the market for over two years.
Average Processor Clock Speed
At 3 gigahertz, the Mac Pro Late 2013 has a pretty typical processor clock speed compared to most of the other desktop computers of a comparable type and age to the Mac Pro Late 2013.
Average Total Storage Capacity
The Mac Pro Late 2013 has a fairly average total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other personal computers of this age and spec.
