How to Configure 2013 Mac Pro + many Mac Pro Configs in stock at B&H Photo

Search for in-stock models using the handy search buttons on the diglloyd gear page. Don’t forget the savings on AppleCare either. Thank you for using those links.

My number one recommended configuration of the 2013 Mac Pro is the 6-core with 1TB SSD (flash).

Note that MPG strongly recommends getting the 1TB flash option because there is no upgrade path at this time. 512GB might be OK for some users, but avoid the 256GB option (too small).

At this time MPG considers the D300 GPUs a fine choice for the vast majority of users (video use excepted), so don’t sweat the GPUs, meaning the “faster” GPUs remain unproven as to any merit over the D300 GPUs.

Not sure which system and config is best for you? Take 20% OFF on MPG consulting, through the end of May. MPG can help you choose the most appropriate machine, the best way to configure storage for your own workflow, a backup strategy, etc.

Stuff you’ll want

Memory

Head over to OWC and grab 64GB of memory. Don’t forget the OWC memory rebate for the memory being replaced, which defrays the cost even further vs buying 64GB Apple memory.

16GB memory modules at 1866 MHz for 2013 Mac Pro

Storage

Add the 16TB or 20TB OWC Thunderbay and you’re “good” (though you might want external backup storage too).

A single Thunderbolt cable up to 30 meters long (!) connects the Thunderbay, whose four drives can be used singly or in RAID-1, RAID-0 or RAID-5 or RAID 1+0.
