How to Get a Mac Pro at 3.46 GHz with 6 or 12 CPU Cores

Want 6 cores at 3.46 GHz in a Mac Pro? Get a refurbished 4-core 2.8GHz Mac Pro, then upgrade the CPU at OWC to a 6-core 3.46GHz workhorse. This option actually costs slightly less than a new 3.33GHz Mac Pro from Apple.

Need 12 cores at 3.46 GHz in a Mac Pro? Get a refurbished 8-core 2.4GHz Mac Pro, then upgrade the CPU at OWC to a 12-core 3.46GHz workhorse. This option wil cost you, but if you need the fastest possible Mac for video or similar tasks, that’s the way to go.

Either way, upgrading to an MPG Pro Workstation setup is a smart move.

Thank you for buying your Mac through our links for Mac Pro or links for MacBook Pro or links for iMac or our refurbished page.

Both 2009 and 2010 models can be upgraded, though 2009 models are limited to 8 CPU cores.
