The Mac Pro represents larger-scale, professional-level desktops aimed at serious hobbyists and business owners who are looking for a beast of a machine.
As Apple confidently states, this Mac PC is designed to be custom-designed. It sports an all-new look centered on a unified thermal core, with plenty of input/output ports so you have all the room you need for your external devices.
When it comes to processing performance, the Mac Pro is unrivaled. The basic Mac Pro quad core model is equipped with an Intel Xeon Ivy Bridge-EP processor, while the highest-end Mac Pros are powered by twelve-core processors. The advantage of Intel’s Ivy Bridge-EP line is that it’s specifically built for workstations and servers, so it can provide faster data access and greater application performance.
You don’t even have to worry about memory bottlenecks. With a four-channel memory controller, the processors access data faster than ever. And, thanks to 1866MHz DDR3 ECC SDRAM, the newest Mac Pro gets a significant boost in memory bandwidth.
If you need a desktop computer that can keep up with your creativity and imagination, the Mac Pro certainly fits the bill. All new Mac Pros sport dual AMD FirePro processors; the highest-end Mac Pros can be configured with GPUs from the AMD FirePro D700 line. You can also choose to upgrade to dual AMD FirePro D700 GPUs, each with 6GB of GDDR5 VRAM, if you’re into more demanding applications. The combination of dual processors and ample dedicated VRAM is best suited for motion graphics, animation, and 3D modeling and rendering.
