Apple 12-Core Mac Pro (Review)

9 Reasons For

Apple Has Excellent Reviews for Its Desktop Computers

Many processor core personal computers manufactured by Apple have excellent reviews on average compared to other manufacturers. We also checked the reviews for all personal computers (not just many processor core personal computers) and found that Apple also has excellent reviews across its entire range.

64-Bit Processor Operating Mode

This personal computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many desktop computers of a similar type and age to it.

Chart Edit

Flash Storage Medium

The storage speed of this computer is Flash, which is the most commonly found storage medium on comparable spec desktop computers that have been available 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.

Chart Edit

Fairly Fast Processor Clock Speed

The Mac Pro has a quite fast processor clock speed (3.5 gigahertz) compared to most of the other similar spec personal computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Mac Pro. The processor clock speeds of computers that have been available for a similar time to the Mac Pro range from 1.6GHz to 3.5GHz.

Chart Edit

Fairly Big Total Storage Capacity

The total storage capacity of comparable spec personal computers that are a similar age to the Mac Pro range from 120GB to 2.3TB. The Mac Pro has a fairly big total storage capacity (1,000 gigabyte) compared to most of the other similar spec computers that have been available for a comparable time to the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

Quite Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency

Across all the similar spec PCs that came out more than a year ago the maximum turbo frequencies range from 2.6GHz to 3.9GHz. The Mac Pro has one of the faster maximum turbo frequencies (3.9 gigahertz) amongst comparable spec personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Short

Desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the Mac Pro have heights of between 250mm and 580mm. With a height of only 251 millimeters, the Mac Pro is one of the shorter many processor core personal computers that are a comparable age to the Mac Pro amongst computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Narrow

The narrowest PC of a similar age and type to the Mac Pro is 160mm wide, the widest is 640mm, and the average width is 200mm. With a width of only 167 millimeters, the Mac Pro is one of the narrower personal computers of a comparable spec and age to the Mac Pro amongst comparable spec computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Shallow

The depths of many processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the Mac Pro range from 160mm to 730mm. With a depth of only 167 millimeters, the Apple Mac Pro is fairly shallow compared to most of the other PCs that have been on the market for a comparable time to the Mac Pro.

Chart Edit

7 Reasons Against

Very Slow Memory Clock Speed Supported by Processor

The Mac Pro has a fairly slow memory clock speed supported by processor (only 800 megahertz) compared to most of the other computers that have been available for more than a year. Across all the many processor core personal computers that were released one year ago the memory clock speeds supported by processors range from 800MHz to 1,600MHz.

Chart Edit

Very Small Max Internal Memory Supported Processor

The average max internal memory supported processor of many processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year is 580GB. The Apple Mac Pro has one of the smaller max internal memory supported processors (only 256 gigabytes) amongst similar spec desktop computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Only One CPU Configuration (max)

The Apple Mac Pro is a personal computer that takes one CPUs configuration (max). Most of the other computers of this spec and age take one CPU configuration (max).

Chart Edit

Quite Slow Memory Clock Speed

Comparable spec computers that came out more than a year ago have memory clock speeds of between 1,600MHz and 2,200MHz. The Mac Pro has one of the slower memory clock speeds (only 1,866 megahertz) amongst similar spec personal computers of this age.

Chart Edit

Very Small Processor Cache

The Mac Pro has one of the smaller processor caches (only 12 megabytes) amongst PCs of this age. The processor caches of many processor core personal computers that came out more than a year ago range from 12MB to 30MB.

Chart Edit

Very Small Maximum Internal Memory

The Mac Pro has one of the smaller maximum internal memory (only 64 gigabytes) amongst personal computers of this age. The average maximum internal memory of many processor core personal computers that have been around for more than a year is 140GB.

Chart Edit

Only 12 Processor Threads

Most desktop computers of a similar age and spec to the Mac Pro have between 6 and 23 processor threads, including the Mac Pro which has 12 processor threads.

Chart Edit

2 Other reasons to consider the Apple Mac Pro

Released Over Two Years Ago

It was over two years ago when this personal computer was released.

Average Internal Memory

At 16 gigabytes, the Apple Mac Pro has a fairly standard internal memory compared to most of the other desktop computers of a similar age and type to the Mac Pro.
