Apple 12-Core Mac Pro (Review)

9 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its PCs

We checked 1,174 owner and expert reviews for Apple personal computers and found that on average Apple has excellent reviews compared to other manufacturers. We also found that Apple has excellent reviews specifically 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 comparable spec computers that are a similar age to it.

Chart Edit

Two CPUs Configuration (max)

The Mac Pro takes more CPUs configuration (max) than most of the many processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago. Most of the similar spec computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Mac Pro only take one CPU configuration (max), however this computer takes two CPUs configuration (max).

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The storage speed of this desktop computer is Flash, which is the most commonly found storage medium on personal 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.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative Flash desktop computers currently available including because of it's better review score, the Apple Mac Pro Late 2013[plb_2110469_price].

If the storage speed of this personal computer is not fast enough for you then you might also want to consider the HP Z440 MT[plb_2720829_price] (SSD), or the Lenovo Thinkstation P500[plb_2765684_price] (SSD).

Chart Edit

5 Reasons Against

Very Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

The average memory clock speed supported by processor of many processor core personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the Mac Pro is 1,100MHz. The Apple Mac Pro has a fairly slow memory clock speed supported by processor (only 800 megahertz) compared to most of the other computers of this type and age.

Chart Edit

Quite Small Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

The average discrete graphics adapter memory of comparable spec PCs that were released around the same time as the Mac Pro is 3TB. At only 2,048 gigabytes, the Mac Pro has a fairly small discrete graphics adapter memory compared to most of the other computers of this age and type.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed

The memory clock speeds of desktop computers of this spec and age range from 1,600MHz to 2,200MHz, and the average memory clock speed is 2,000MHz. The Mac Pro has a fairly slow memory clock speed (only 1,866 megahertz) compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Maximum Turbo Frequency

With a maximum turbo frequency of only 3.5 gigahertz, the Apple Mac Pro has one of the slower maximum turbo frequencies amongst many processor core personal computers of this age. The average maximum turbo frequency of PCs of a similar type and age to the Mac Pro is 3.6GHz.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory

Across all the personal computers that have been available for more than a year the maximum internal memory range from 32GB to 520GB. At only 64 gigabytes, the Apple Mac Pro has a fairly small maximum internal memory compared to most of the other PCs of this age and spec.
