Mac Pro Westmere Introduction

A Mac Pro is expensive enough to begin with, but paying more for the same performance is silly. The focus of my attention is on the hexacore 3.33GHz “Westmere” configuration. It looks to be the top performing model of the line (or close to it) and a much lower cost than the 12-core models. Of course, specialty uses can make use of 12 cores, but most software cannot.

Performance and value

Here is the base configuration that will make 95% of Mac users very happy.

Upgrade to a pre-tested and pre-configured MPG Pro Workstation for top performance.
