MAC PRO 6x 3.5 (3.9 turbro) ordered
8 months ago

just ordered the new MAC PRO late 2013 in following configuration:

  • 6-Core E5-1650V2 with 3.5 GHz (2.9 GHz Turbo with 12 MB L3
  • 1 TB PCIe based flash with 1.2 GB/sec
  • 32 GB of 1866 MHz DDR3 ECC memory
  • dual AMD FirePro D700, each with 6GB of GDDR5 VRAM, 2048 stream processors, 384-bit-wide memory bus, 264GB/s memory bandwidth, and 3.5 teraflops performance

hope to get it end of January 2014.

I will use it for the same things I use my current MAC Pro 8x 2.67 GHz (early 2009) for.

But the following things convinced me:

  • New (technical) design (pretty amazing IMHO)
  • significantly lower power consumption
  • smaller footprint
  • much lower nose when working
  • interesting optical design (up to the eye of the beholder of course)
  • more computing power (not need but nice to have)
  • new cup generation (always good to have a machine that is not too old)
  • replacement of my five year old Mac PRO 8x2.67 GHz
  • enormously Open CL power for PS and LR
  • UHD (aka 4k) display support

I guess the 4k display support ist the key factor for me - will order a 4k display as soon as a Adobe 1998 gamut 4k display is available under 1500 EUR (until then my 27 inch cinema display is just good enough)

looking forward to the new power MAC

Will post some benchmarks here with LR5 and CS6 compare to my current machine and compare to different iMACs, MacBook Air and Mac Book Pro

Santa was nice to me this year
