The Apple Mac Pro is the fastest Mac ever produced to date - perfect for all your audio and video needs. Eight-core processing power was once only top-of-the-line. Now it comes standard. This time around, performance is more phenomenal than ever — up to two times faster than the previous standard-configuration Mac Pro. And with the multicore technology enhancements of Mac OS X Leopard, the new Mac Pro is a force to be reckoned with.
8 cores, standard.
8-core processing was once reserved as a high-end option. Now it's at the heart of the Mac Pro line. This incredible power stems from all-new Quad-Core Intel Xeon “Harpertown” processors, featuring speeds up to 3.2GHz and 12MB of L2 cache per processor.
Blazing fast, up to 2x performance.
With its 8-core processing, advanced Xeon architecture, 1600MHz dual independent front-side buses, and 800MHz memory, the new Mac Pro delivers up to 2x greater application performance.2
Up to 4TB storage, RAID, and SAS.
The cable-free, direct-attach hard drive bays make it easy to install up to 4TB of storage with Serial ATA 3Gb/s drives. For enhanced data protection, the optional Mac Pro RAID card delivers hardware RAID levels 0, 1, 5, and 0+1. Used with this card, 15,000-rpm SAS drives bring added performance to RAID configurations.
Feast your eyes
An all-new high-performance graphics card from ATI makes Mac Pro graphics technology even more cutting edge. The standard graphics card — an ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT with 256MB of GDDR3 memory, PCI Express 2.0, and two dual-link DVI ports — provides great performance for typical creative applications. And you get dual 30-inch Apple Cinema HD Display support out of the box.
PCI Express 2.0, double the speed.
The PCI Express 2.0 graphics card slot delivers twice the transfer rate of the previous generation. And you can install up to three additional PCI Express cards in three full-length slots — one PCIe 2.0, the other two PCIe.
Massive, fast memory.
Add up to 32GB of fast 800MHz DDR2 ECC fully buffered memory — a memory architecture that's up to 256 bits wide and allows for incredible memory capacity, bandwidth, and reliability.
