Upgrade Your Mac Pro to 3.46 GHz or Up to 12 CPU Cores

Do you have a 2009 or 2010 Mac Pro that you wish were faster?

See Upgrading a Mac Pro to More Cores or Faster CPU.

A killer upgrade is going from the 4-core 2.8 GHz Mac Pro to a 6-core 3.46 GHz Mac Pro for about $1549— that’s 2 more CPU cores and a 23% faster CPU.

Then let the CPU do its job by upgrading to an MPG Pro Workstation.

You can get the 2.8 GHz Mac Pro refurbished for about $2119.

2010 upgrades

Availability for fastest speeds as of mid May, 2011. Not all possibilities shown, see the OWC CPU upgrade page.

From To Comments
2.8GHz 4-core 12-core up to 3.46 GHz
8-core up to 2.66 GHz
4/6core up to 3.46 GHz
Most cost effective way to upgrade.
3.2GHz 4-core same options as above Better to upgrade the 2.8GHz model for lower cost
2.4Ghz 8-core 12-core up to 3.46GHz Reasonable total cost.
3.33Ghz 6-core 12-core up to 3.46GHz Not cost efficient, but can be done.
12-core 12-core up to 3.46 GHz Not cost efficient, but can be done.

2009 models also

The 2009 Mac Pro models can also be upgraded, even from single CPU to dual CPU. Anyone with an 8-core 2.26GHz 2009 Mac Pro will find that an attractive proposition.
