Apple Mac Pro
Introducing the new Mac Pro
The single-die advantage.
Many multicore processors are composed of two separate dies, which means some cached data has to travel outside the processor to get from core to core. Thats an inefficient way to access information.
Choose your cores: 4, 6, 8 or 12.
The new Apple Mac Pro offers two advanced processor options from Intel. The Quad-Core Intel Xeon "Nehalem" processor is available in a single-processor, quad-core configuration at speeds up to 3.2GHz.
Fast memory. And lots of it.
System memory is often connected to a processor through a separate I/O controller. But Intel Xeon "Nehalem" and "Westmere" processors feature an integrated memory controller. By connecting memory directly to the processor, the new Apple Mac Pro processors have faster access to data stored in memory, and memory latency is reduced.
Power when (and where) you need it.
The Mac Pro features Turbo Boost, a dynamic performance technology that automatically boosts the processor clock speed based on workload. If you're using an application that doesn't need every core, Turbo Boost increases the speed of the active ones, up to 3.33GHz on a 12-core Mac Pro, and up to 3.6GHz on a 6-core system.
