Apple Mac Pro review (2013)

 

"We're working on something really great for later next year." After years of seemingly neglecting Apple's most hardcore, highest-paying users, a 2012 email from Tim Cook finally gave people...

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...

Apple Mac Pro (Winter 2009) review

 

In addition to revamping its iMac and Mac Mini desktops in the beginning of March, Apple also updated its highest end professional-level Mac Pros. Available as before in four- and eight-core configurations, the newest Mac Pros have a number of new...

Best-in-class desktop design; interior makes upgrades and parts replacement simple; strong performance on HD video and 3D rendering thanks to new Intel CPU and faster RAM

Relatively slow performance on programs such as Photoshop that rely on single-core CPU speed; we wish it had eSATA instead of FireWire 800 for external hard-drive connections.

Apple's new eight-core Mac Pro demonstrates marked improvements over the older model in high-intensity digital media and multitasking scenarios. We also love the design tweaks that improve on Apple's already industry-leading sensibilities. Any...

Apple Mac Pro

 

Mac-using professionals who've been holding their breath for 9 months can finally exhale. The new Intel Xeon-powered Apple Mac Pro is a worthy successor to the Power Mac G5 and its variants.

Microsoft Windows- and Mac OS X-compatible (with Boot Camp). Quad-core performance. Approaches Native PPC performance, even with older apps. Ordering system simplified. PCIe slots galore support multiple monitors with extra graphics cards. Easy to...

Windows support isn't quite there yet (still beta). Stratospheric pricing as configured. ECC DDR2 memory is expensive

Review: Apple's new Mac Pro is a speed demon

 

The upgraded Mac Pro pushes apps to the limit

When a colleague of mine heard that I was testing this particular configuration, he posed a question: "Given the price difference, is it worth purchasing Apple's Pro lines when the consumer lines seem plenty fast enough?"

Mac Pro

 

You can't tell from the outside that Apple's new two-socket, eight-core Mac Pro, based on Intel's new Nehalem Xeon CPU, is much changed from the two-s...

Fast, green, silent, rugged, expandable

Expensive

If my take is right, then the 2009 Nehalem Mac Pro hardware platform, once purchased, is one that should stay stable and upgradable until, say, PCI Express 3 becomes an imperative.
