Apple Mac Pro review (2013): small, fast and in a league of its own

 

It would be an understatement to say that Apple's Mac Pro workstation was getting a little long in the tooth. As of summer 2012, it was missing Apple's o

Compact, space-saving design ; Strong graphics performance, fast disk speeds ; Runs quietly ; Supports up to three 4K displays

Runs a little warm, and can take a while to cool down ; Many apps still need to be optimized to take advantage of two GPUs

There isn't another computer we know of that's this powerful and also this compact. With a starting price of $2,999, going all the way up to nearly $10,000, it's quite pricey, but for videographers, photographers, animators and other creative...

Apple Mac Pro (2013)

 

The Apple Mac Pro (2013) is a powerhouse in a surprisingly small package, leveraging innovative design and extreme connectivity to completely re-imagine the professional desktop workstation.

Dramatic departure from boring, boxy designs. Powerful performance thanks to Intel Xeon E5 processor and dual AMD FirePro graphics. Supports multiple simultaneous 4K video streams, and a wealth of external expansion options. Lots of ports, with 6...

Expensive, even for an Apple product. No internal access to processor or graphics cards. Warranty is relatively short.

There's no ignoring it, the new Apple Mac Pro (2013) is stunning. Aside from the occasional joke about the resemblance to more mundane objects—garbage cans, coffee makers, wine chillers—the Mac Pro (2013) has been grabbing attention because of it's...

Can be incredibly fast ; Small, sleek design ; Virtually silent ; Excellent graphics performance

Needs software tuning to get performance right ; Very expensive

Apple Mac Pro review

 

Editors' note (April 7, 2017): This review refers to the 2013 version of the Mac Pro. Apple has since revealed its roadmap for the product's future, as well as some other info on Mac desktops and accessories. Specifically, we now know:

The Mac Pro 's hardware is incredibly powerful, especially if you're using it for pro-level graphics and video tasks. It can output to up to three 4K displays simultaneously, thanks to six Thunderbolt 2 ports plus HDMI. The system is whisper-quiet,...

Internal expandability is limited, and even the starting price is a hefty $3,000. While it's a very high-design product, the components inside are intended for professional use, and not especially suitable for Apple-loving home consumers.

Apple radically re-imagines the professional desktop with the new Mac Pro, featuring a design that looks fantastic and offers genuine breakthrough advantages. But, consumer-level Apple enthusiasts should note that this product isn't specifically...

Mac Pro 2013 Review

 

Apple is finally taking the Mac Pro seriously again. Years of seeing the iMac, MacBook, iPhone, and iPad get the bulk of Apple's design and engineering attention had left many professionals worried that the Mac Pro was to be put out to pasture; now we...

Let’s get the easiest conclusion out of the way first: if you’re a Final Cut Pro user, and you can afford it, the new Mac Pro is the best workstation on which to use it. Apple’s combination of software and hardware – when paired with the right 4K...

Review: Apple Mac Pro (Late 2013)

 

Apple reinvents the professional workstation

Superbly engineered- Beautiful, yet practical design- Incredible system bandwidth- Outstanding connectivity- Class-leading value for money

iMac outpaces Mac Pro in some areas on paper- Performance dependent on app optimization- Few Thunderbolt 2 peripherals at this time

Last June, Apple unveiled the new Mac Pro in what turned out to be a an excruciatingly long six-month wait for the shipping product. Now that we finally have our hands on one, the high-end standard configuration with a 6-core Intel Xeon and dual AMD

Review: Apple's redesigned late 2013 Mac Pro

 

After years of waiting, pro users finally get a completely revamped Mac designed specifically to suit their needs, complete with bespoke chassis, high-powered internals and a price tag to match.

Most powerful Mac ever ; Radical design makes for thermally efficient and quiet operation ; Exceptional value for the Prosumer/home studio ; Generous number of Thunderbolt 2 and USB 3.0 ports ; Forward-looking component package ; The new Mac Pro is...

Price tag not for faint of heart ; Limited on-board storage & user-repairability/component replacement ; The new Mac Pro is currently available from Apple and its authorized resellers in up to 198 different configurations but is severally constrained...

It's hard not to recommend the Mac Pro after using it. The price may be hard to swallow for the average consumer, but is fair considering the horsepower under the hood. With substantial performance gains over the last generation, a killer design and...
