When we began work on the new Mac Pro, we considered every element that defines a pro computer graphics, storage, expansion, processing power, and memory. And we challenged ourselves to find the...
Apple is one of the top rated personal computer manufacturers according to average reviews from experts and users, and Apple also has excellent ratings for its many processor core personal computers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is the most frequently supported processor operating mode on computers that came out more than two years ago.
Quite Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor
With a max internal memory supported processor of 768 gigabytes, the Mac Pro Late 2013 has one of the bigger max internal memory supported processors amongst many processor core personal computers of this age. The max internal memory supported processors of desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the Mac Pro Late 2013 range from 64GB to 770GB.
Quite Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
With a discrete graphics adapter memory of 6,144 gigabytes, the Apple Mac Pro Late 2013 has one of the bigger discrete graphics adapter memory capacities amongst similar spec desktop computers of this age. Many processor core personal computers that came out more than two years ago have discrete graphics adapter memory capacities of between 3GB and 8.2TB.
Flash Storage Medium
The storage speed of this personal computer is Flash, which is the most commonly found storage medium on computers that are a comparable 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.
Quite Big Internal Memory
The average internal memory of many processor core personal computers that have been available for more than two years is 22GB, and the internal memory range from 4GB to 64GB.

Across all the many processor core personal computers that have been on the market for more than two years the depths range from 160mm to 620mm, and the average depth is 340mm. The Mac Pro Late 2013 is fairly shallow (only 167 millimeters) compared to most of the other comparable spec personal computers that have been on the market for around the same time as the Mac Pro Late 2013.
4 Reasons Against
Very Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor
The Apple Mac Pro Late 2013 has a quite slow memory clock speed supported by processor (only 800 megahertz) compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been around for more than two years. The slowest memory clock speed supported by processor of many processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago is 800MHz and the fastest is 1,600MHz.
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 comparable spec PCs that are a similar age to it.
Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
With a discrete graphics adapter memory of only 3,072 megabytes, the Mac Pro Late 2013 has a quite small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that have been available for more than two years. The smallest discrete graphics adapter memory of PCs of this age and spec is 510MB and the biggest is 8.2GB.
Very Small Maximum Internal Memory
Desktop computers of this type and age have maximum internal memory of between 32GB and 520GB. With a maximum internal memory of only 64 gigabytes, the Mac Pro Late 2013 has one of the smaller maximum internal memory amongst PCs of this age.
