64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This PC supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many computers that were launched more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory

Across all the computers of a comparable spec and age to the Mac Pro the discrete graphics adapter memory capacities range from 1GB to 6.2TB. When compared to other desktop computers of this age and spec that we have checked the discrete graphics adapter memory of, the Mac Pro's discrete graphics adapter memory of 6,144 gigabytes is one of the biggest.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Max Memory Bandwidth Supported Processor

The max memory bandwidth supported processor of comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for more than two years range from 10GB/s to 68GB/s, and the average max memory bandwidth supported processor is 30GB/s. At 59.7 gigabytes per second, the Apple Mac Pro has a quite fast max memory bandwidth supported processor compared to most of the other personal computers that have been available for a similar time to the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

PCs of a similar type and age to the Mac Pro have max internal memory supported processors of between 2GB and 770GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 88GB. With a max internal memory supported processor of 256 gigabytes, the Mac Pro has a fairly big max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other medium processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The Apple Mac Pro has a Flash storage medium which is faster than most desktop computers of this spec and age. Most medium processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago have an HDD storage medium. 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. Across all personal computers of a similar spec and age to the Mac Pro the best storage speed is SSD and the worst is HDD.

Chart Edit

Very Fast Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of 3.7 gigahertz, the Mac Pro has one of the faster processor clock speeds amongst similar spec desktop computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Internal Memory

At 12 gigabytes, the Apple Mac Pro has a fairly big internal memory compared to most of the other PCs of this age and type. Across all the desktop computers that are a comparable age to the Mac Pro the internal memory range from 2GB to 64GB, and the average internal memory is 7.5GB.

Chart Edit

3 PCI Express Slots Version

This personal computer supports a 3 PCI Express slots version, which is the most commonly supported PCI Express slots version on comparable spec personal computers that have been available for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

L3 Processor Cache Level

This desktop computer has a L3 processor cache level, which is the most frequently found processor cache level on medium processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to it.

Chart Edit

Two Discrete Graphics Adapters

The Apple Mac Pro has more discrete graphics adapters than most of the similar spec PCs that came out around the same time as the Mac Pro. Most of the PCs that were launched around the same time as the Mac Pro only have one discrete graphics adapter, however this computer has two discrete graphics adapters.

Chart Edit

Gold EPEAT Compliance

This desktop computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many personal computers of a similar type and age to it.

Chart Edit

10/100/1000Base-T(X) Cabling Technology

This desktop computer has a 10/100/1000Base-T(X) cabling technology, which is the most commonly found cabling technology on PCs that have been around for around the same time as it.

Chart Edit

Two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) Ports

The Mac Pro has more Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports than most of the medium processor core personal computers that were launched around the same time as the Mac Pro. Most of the medium processor core personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Mac Pro only have one Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) port, however this desktop computer has two Ethernet LAN (RJ-45) ports.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Maximum Internal Memory

The Mac Pro has one of the bigger maximum internal memory (64 gigabytes) amongst medium processor core personal computers of this age. Personal computers of a similar age and spec to the Mac Pro have maximum internal memory of between 2GB and 260GB.

Chart Edit

Quite Big Processor Cache
