+3 More reasons for
Quite Big Discrete Graphics Adapter Memory
When compared to other personal computers of this type and age that we have assessed the discrete graphics adapter memory of, the Apple Mac Pro's discrete graphics adapter memory of 6,144 megabytes is one of the biggest. The average discrete graphics adapter memory of many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Mac Pro is 4.9GB.
Very Fast Maximum Turbo Frequency
Across all the many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Mac Pro the maximum turbo frequencies range from 2.6GHz to 3.9GHz. With a maximum turbo frequency of 3.9 gigahertz, the Apple Mac Pro has a very fast maximum turbo frequency compared to most of the other many processor core personal computers that are a similar age to the Mac Pro.
1 Reason Against
Very Small Processor Cache
The Apple Mac Pro has one of the smaller processor caches (only 12 megabytes) amongst computers of this age. The smallest processor cache of computers of a comparable age and type to the Mac Pro is 12MB and the biggest is 30MB.
