Turbocharged and ready for serious media production

Many multi-core processors are composed of two separate dies, which means some cached data has to travel outside the processor to get from core to core - an inefficient way to access information. The 12-core Intel Xeon processor changes all of that. The Xeon single-die 64-bit architecture makes 8MB of fully shared L3 cache readily available to each of the four processor cores. The results are fast access to cache data and greater application performance. What's more, this Mac Pro gives you Turbo Boost, a dynamic performance technology that automatically boosts the processor clock speed based on workload. If you're using an application that doesn't need every core, Turbo Boost shuts off the idle cores while simultaneously increasing the speed of the active ones.

Experience stellar graphics performance

All-new high-performance graphics cards from AMD make the Mac Pro 12-core 2.4GHz's graphics technology faster than before. Perfect for motion graphics, 3D modeling, rendering, or animation, the ATI Radeon HD 5770 with 1GB of GDDR5 memory comes standard - and provides up to 2.9x the performance of previous Mac Pro standard graphics cards. The Mac Pro 12-core 2.4GHz's graphics card also features two display ports for maximum workspace flexibility. A Mini DisplayPort connects to the new 24" Apple LED Cinema Display with ease, while the onboard dual-link DVI port connects to any other DVI display.

All of the connections you need

There are plenty of places to connect external devices to your Mac Pro 12-core 2.4GHz. You'll find two FireWire 800 ports, two USB 2.0 ports, and a headphone minijack right up front - where it's more convenient to connect storage and multimedia devices as well as high-speed peripherals. And there are even more ports on the back: three USB 2.0, two FireWire 800, optical audio input and output, analog audio input and output, and dual Gigabit Ethernet ports.
