Apple Mac Pro 2013
The Mac Pro 2013 is the first major upgrade for the Mac Pro line since 2010. The base model features a 3.7GHz quad-core Intel Xeon E5-1620 v2 processor, 12GB of RAM, a 256GB PCI Express SSD and two AMD FirePro D300 graphics cards, each with 2GB of GDDR5 memory. Or you can order the following upgrades: Intel’s 3.5GHz six-core Xeon E5-1650 v2 chip, 16GB of RAM and two FirePro D500 GPUs with 3GB of GDDR5 RAM each.
Compact, space-saving design.
Strong graphics performance, fast disk speeds.
Supports up to three 4K displays.
Clever three-sided motherboard for efficient cooling.
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.
Internal expandability is limited.
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.
