Apple has updated its highest end professional level Apple Mac Pro. The latest Mac Pro is equipped with a number of new design features and technology, such as the latest Xeon CPUs from Intel.
On the outside, Mac Pro looks very similar to the previous models. It is also integrated with external features. The major difference is the pair of new video ports on Nvidia GeForce GT 120 graphics card. Rather than a pair of standard DVI port, the new cord includes dual-link DVI and the mini DisplayPort outputs.Inside the Mac Pro are the benefits of building products in its own software and hardware environment. The interior is segmented into different zones for several hardware components. The power supply and optical drive are hidden behind the pull-out metal drawers and below sits the row of four removable hard drive trays.
The expansion card lots, memory and CPUs were also improved. Apple makes use of a single metal rod that spans across the four expansion slots that will hold the card in place. It is simply a solution to problems you are likely to encounter when adding or removing expansion card.
For the memory and CPU, Apple has taken that concept step further in the new system and you can remove the entire memory portion and CPU for the motherboard through a simple tray design. Apple has also updated the CPU, memory and graphics card of Mac Pro.
With Nehalem comes with a few technology upgrades, it supports for DDR3 memory and return of Hyper-Threading Technology from the Pentium 4 chips of Intel. It can stimulate more processing CPU threads for up to 16 threads in all of the eight-core Mac Pro. Apple has also added a 512MB Nvidia GeForce GT 120 graphics card to the new baseline specifications of Mac Pro that amounts to faster GPU and twice the graphics memory as the older one. This time around, users can also get 640GB hard drive.
