Stunning New Design.Mac Pro is the professional desktop computer reinvented from the inside out. Arranging the most advanced technologies available around a unified thermal core allowed us to make...
Apple has excellent average reviews for its many processor core personal computers as well as across its entire computer range compared to other manufacturers.
64-Bit Processor Operating Mode
This desktop computer supports a 64-bit processor operating mode, which is typical of many desktop computers of a comparable age and type to it.
Flash Storage Medium
The storage speed of this desktop computer is Flash, which is typical of many comparable spec computers that have been on the market for more than a year. 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.
24 Processor Threads
The Mac Pro Late 2013 is a 24 processor thread personal computer.
Very Big Processor Cache
Across all the many processor core personal computers that were released around the same time as the Mac Pro Late 2013 the processor caches range from 12MB to 30MB. With a processor cache of 30 megabytes, the Apple Mac Pro Late 2013 has one of the biggest processor caches amongst computers of this age.
1 Reason Against
Quite Small Solid-State Drive Capacity
The solid-state drive capacities of desktop computers that have been on the market for more than a year range from 120GB to 1TB, and the average solid-state drive capacity is 350GB. At only 256 gigabytes, the Apple Mac Pro Late 2013 has a quite small solid-state drive capacity compared to most of the other desktop computers that were released one year ago.
