Apple 12-Core Mac Pro (Review)

11 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its PCs

We calculated the average ratings for all Apple computers and also specifically for Apple many processor core personal computers and found that in both cases Apple had excellent ratings compared to other brands.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many desktop computers of this spec and age.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The storage speed of this PC is Flash, which is the most frequently found storage medium on many processor core personal computers that have been around for a similar time 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.

If you would prefer a computer with a faster storage speed then you might want to consider the Z640[pl_2470063_price] (SSD), or the Z640[pl_2520388_price] (SSD) both from HP or the Lenovo P900[plb_2535697_price] (SSD) which is also cheaper.

Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed

With a processor clock speed of 3.5 gigahertz, the Apple Mac Pro has a quite fast processor clock speed compared to most of the other comparable spec PCs that have been on the market for around the same time as the Mac Pro. The average processor clock speed of similar spec PCs that were released more than two years ago is 2.9GHz.

Chart Edit

Gold EPEAT Compliance

This computer has a Gold EPEAT compliance, which is typical of many many processor core personal computers that were launched more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency

The slowest maximum turbo frequency of computers that were launched around the same time as the Mac Pro is 2.5GHz, the fastest is 4GHz, and the average maximum turbo frequency is 3.5GHz. With a maximum turbo frequency of 3.9 gigahertz, the Apple Mac Pro has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies amongst PCs of this age.

Chart Edit

Supports One Case Placement

The Mac Pro has a greater number of placements than most similar spec desktop computers that have been around for a comparable time to it. This Apple PC supports a Vertical case placement, which is the most frequently supported case placement supported by similar spec personal computers that came out more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Short

Across all the computers of this age and type the heights range from 250mm to 580mm, and the average height is 360mm. The Mac Pro is quite short (only 251 millimeters) compared to most of the other personal computers that came out around the same time as the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Very Light

The Mac Pro is one of the lighter PCs of a similar spec and age to the Mac Pro (only 5 kilograms) amongst many processor core personal computers of this age. The weights of many processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Mac Pro range from 250g to 30kg, and the average weight is 12kg.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

Across all the desktop computers of this spec and age the widths range from 160mm to 450mm. With a width of only 167 millimeters, the Mac Pro is one of the narrower many processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago amongst similar spec personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

The shallowest many processor core personal computer that came out more than two years ago is 160mm deep and the deepest is 620mm. The Apple Mac Pro is one of the shallower many processor core personal computers that have been available for more than two years (only 167 millimeters) amongst many processor core personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

6 Reasons Against

Very Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

Across all the PCs of a similar type and age to the Mac Pro the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 800MHz to 1,600MHz, and the average memory clock speed supported by processor 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 many processor core personal computers that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Very Small Total Storage Capacity

The smallest total storage capacity of many processor core personal computers that came out more than two years ago is 180GB and the biggest is 8.3TB. At only 256 gigabytes, the Mac Pro has a fairly small total storage capacity compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the Mac Pro.

We think you might also be interested in some of the alternative 256GB total storage capacity personal computers currently available including the Z640[pl_2470063_price], or the Z640[pl_2520388_price] both from HP or the Lenovo P900[plb_2535697_price] which is cheaper.

Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

The max internal memory supported processors of many processor core personal computers that came out more than two years ago range from 64GB to 770GB, and the average max internal memory supported processor is 630GB. At only 256 gigabytes, the Apple Mac Pro has a fairly small max internal memory supported processor compared to most of the other PCs that were released more than two years ago.

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed

With a memory clock speed of only 1,866 megahertz, the Mac Pro has a quite slow memory clock speed compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Mac Pro. Computers that have been available for around the same time as the Mac Pro have memory clock speeds of between 1,300MHz and 2,200MHz.

Chart Edit

Very Small Processor Cache

The smallest processor cache of PCs of this spec and age is 12MB, the biggest is 30MB, and the average processor cache is 20MB. At only 12 megabytes, the Mac Pro has a quite small processor cache compared to most of the other desktop computers that were released more than two years ago.
