|Choose your cores: 4,
6 or 12.
The Mac Pro offers two advanced processor options from Intel. The Quad-Core Intel Xeon processor is available in a single-processor, quad-core configuration at 3.2GHz. For even greater speed and power, choose a 6-Core Intel Xeon processor. Since the Mac Pro comes with either one or two processors, you can have a 6-core Mac Pro at up to 3.33GHz, or, to max out your performance, a 12-core system at up to 3.06GHz.
||Fast, powerful graphics comes with the territory.
High-performance graphics cards from AMD make Mac Pro graphics technology up to 5 times faster than ever before.1 Perfect for motion graphics, 3D modeling, rendering, or animation, the ATI Radeon HD 5770 with 1GB of GDDR5 memory comes standard. It not only provides faster performance compared to previous Mac Pro standard graphics cards — it’s also faster than the top-of-the-line graphics cards in the previous generation.
The Mac Pro comes with four 3.5-inch drive bays for an enormous amount of internal storage — up to 8TB when you install four 2TB Serial ATA 3Gb/s drives.1 Each bay provides its own independent 3Gb/s channel for fast access to data. And thanks to the cable-free, direct-attach installation system, adding (or replacing) hard drives is a surprisingly simple process.
||Expansion made easy.
The easy-access interior of the Mac Pro feels like the well-organized
workstation it is. No rat's nest of components here. You don't need
to turn the system on its side or struggle to reach into awkward
spaces to make changes. Just remove the side panel for instant access
to everything. Slide out the processor tray to add memory. Slide
out drive bays to add storage. Slide a simple bar to change up to
four expansion cards at once. And with plenty of I/O ports both front
and back, you'll have room for all your external devices.
