2013 Mac Pro: 6 or 8 CPU Cores?

A big thanks to Other World Computing for loaning the 8-core 3.3 GHz Mac Pro and authorized Apple dealer B&H Photo for loaning the 6-core 3.5 GHz Mac Pro.

The late 2013 Mac Pro handily outperforms the 2010 Mac Pro, even a 12-core 3.33 GHz monster with the ATI Radeon 5870 video card.

But what about the “sweet spot” of 6 CPU cores at 3.5 GHz (Apple stock CPU) vs an 8-core CPU at 3.3 GHz (OWC upgraded CPU)?

Not sure what to get, how much memory, drives, backup, storage, etc? Consult with me about your new Mac Pro system.

See all the tests.
