Apple has done it again. This time it produced the world’s most powerful desktop computer. The new 8-core and 4-core Mac Pro has been describe by Apple as “perfect for power users”. Its most appealing spec is its innovative Nehalem microprocessor with a clock speed of approximately 2.26GHz. This processor utilizes one of Intel’s most potent lines of processors – the Xeon 3500 / 5500.
Among its latest and refurbished parts include:
- a new video system
- a new hardware look
- 4-core processors on 1 die
- On-chip memory controller
- Turbo Boost
- A whooping 4 Tera-byte of hard drive storage (maximum capacity)
- Up to 6GB of memory
- Enhanced Data Rate wireless
- NVIDIA GeForce GT 120
All these specs make the new Mac Pro 1.7 times faster than the 2008-released Mac Pro model.
But all beautiful and powerful things come with a price. For a Quad-Core Mac Pro (with a clock-speed of 2.66GHz), its price ranges from $2,300 to $2,500. On the other hand, the Eight-Core Mac Pro (with a clock-speed of 2.26GHz) can go up to $3,400.
