Know More About Mac Pro

 Mac Pro
For the last few years Mac Pro had not changed in appearance. With the new Mac Pro, Apple not only offers a new case, it shows its deep thinking for desktop computing. Mac Pro or otherwise Power Mac G5 is certainly beautiful and practical, but it nevertheless remained a desktop fairly conventional; a big box full of fans, disks and expansion cards.

While the general public enjoyed multiple avatars iMac all-in- one, Apple was conservative. The Mac Pro is the first Mac fully assembled in the United States in the last fifteen years. Even though it keeps the name of its predecessor, the new Mac Pro is not just another variation on the same theme. However the idea behind its design; you can observe the Apple’s research for over thirty years. This black cylinder replaces the gray towers and beige boxes in the role of computation module agnostic, which the user can expand and specialize functions according to his creative needs.

Apple's website suggests that the Mac Pro is black. The aluminum hood is a rather dark gray, aluminum mirror finish: with this pink paper, the Mac Pro takes a very slight tint of purple hue. Les pictures Worked Apple website suggests that the Mac Pro is black. The aluminum hood is a rather dark gray, aluminum mirror finish: with this pink paper, the Mac Pro takes a slight purplish hue. We can also trace the lineage of the new Mac Pro to Power Mac G4 Cube; the various organs were arranged around a cooling tower and protected by a carcass licked design.

Mac Pro-1
The similarities are striking, but this time Apple has pushed the idea at its peak and the new Mac Pro is nothing more than a pre calculated module, without any form of internal expansion. Towering drives have been replaced by tiny flash drives, race GHz gave way to the race for hearts and graphics cards are equally used by hardcore gamers looking for FPS by scientists looking for a God particle. The Mac pro carries the SSD and you can notice that there would be room for other in second array. The Mac Pro is designed from the inside to the outside.

"Thermal heart” is the backbone of the machine, a radiator triangular prism shaped charge to dissipate the heat of the components attached thereto. Fresh air is sucked from the bottom of the Mac Pro, rises along the thermal heart, and warmed by the top. A single fan at the top of the machine is required to operate the cooling system. The memory modules are distributed either side of the card with processor "hidden" behind the ports.

Each side of the heart receives a thermal daughter board; one for the processor, the other for the two graphics chips, the components which form the true heart of this machine by providing capabilities in general and specialized in computing at very high frequency or massively parallelized. The new Mac Pro only has a single Intel Xeon processor E5 Ivy Bridge -EP, but the hyper -threading "transforms" every physical heart in two logical cores. When starting the machine port groups are lit progressively. In normal operation, only the power button remains lit unless the machine is running.

The Mac Pro contains an accelerometer that serves nothing but detects this movement and triggers the illuminating LEDs. The other specialties are grafted onto these cards, as added accessories where there is enough room for it. The SSD takes place on a graphics card. Memory is four in number only at the side of the processor board. The essential and imperative interface between the internal power and versatility external input I / O, are the dark iridescent armor knights of Mac Pro.

All new Apple Mac Pro

Mac Pro

Yup the long awaited time has come folks!!! The All new Apple Mac pro has hit the market with a big bang. Dec 19, quite a day for the Apple Company. Apple Company had made a revolution by creating a footprint. With just $3000 dollars to spare you could even own this baby yours.

Well what is it? 

Now there arouse a question in all your minds what is it? Seems so shiny and attractive. All could see is that it’s pretty. Some may even think what’s there in this cylinder and why should i buy the shiny, pretty cylinder for $3000?

Apple’s MacPro is a computer’s CPU can you believe it? Quite the shape it has isn’t it. It is the most powerful computer released till now, with extraordinary features and outstanding performances. Don’t be stunned till you hear out its features.

Mac Pro-1


Now let us go into the details. Now basically what does a CPU have? Probably a great processors, storage, Graphics and expansion etc. So what did the company do? Did they make new components to make the CPU? No. Your guess is wrong. They just thought of a way to make these components to arrange and work in a different fashion rather than an old boring way. Well what did they do you ask. Here let me show you.
Outstanding Features:

OS- Mac OS (Mavericks[10.9] 


First things first, the architecture is stunning with a sleek black (also available in metallic silver) cylinder and a hole at the top to drive out the heat from the inner parts. 9.9 inches tall and has a diameter of about 6.6 inches. Withe help of Thunderbolt 2 ports the size is also considerably reduced and the connections for USB 3.0 are present at the back.

To connect the peripherals with your MacPro rotating it would be just fine rather than pulling it and getting hit at the table while making a connection.

  • Unified thermal core:
All our computers consist of several heat sinks to cool off different processors. Apple Company thought why all the components can’t be cooled with a single heat sink leading to the production of a single unified thermal core. In that case if 1 processor doesn’t work, the heat transfer is shared among all other process.

  • Single Breakthrough Fan:
We all have processors fans in the same size of the processors inside our PC’s and we all come across a problem of this fan not working in most of the cases. This consists of a single large fan with back curved impeller blades with few rpm/minute.

Possible I/O connections: 

The I/O connections that can be made through the computer is Thunderbolt 2, 2 Gigabit ethernet (allows you to connect with multiple users), USB 3, HDMI 1.4 (provides with the latest TV, projectors, displays[supports upto 4K displays])


Processor is New generation Intel Xeon E5(processing speed of 3.7 GHz) with a processing speed of max. 12 core (Quad core) process on a single die. Beyond our imagination right? And 30MBL3 cache memory, 256 bit wide floating point instructions might also add a feather on its cap.


RAM-12GB and SSD hard disk-256GB. 

With a 4 DDR3 memory controller and the type of memory used is ECC (Error Correcting Code- tests the accuracy of data when it while it runs in the memory system) memory and also SATA storage interface. The storage also consists of the next generation flash storage where it is 2.4 times faster than the last released SATA cable


Both Wi-Fi and Ethernet connections are available. Wi-Fi specifications (802.11a,ac,b,g,n). Also Wi-Fi encryption is made by WEP, WPA, and WPA2. 2 Ethernet ports available (10/100/1000GB)


The current generation computers have graphic cards in MB size alone. Whereas here we’ve upto 2-6GB VRAM with 2408 stream processors. So imagine the quality of video by yourself and this is suitable for the heavy gaming champions out there.


The technology might be well equipped with a different perspective to enter into the market, but it takes some time to settle down. Coz we’re not sure about this technology anyway. We’ve always worked out our problems in the same usual and boring way and this venture of Apple firm is appreciable but it takes some time to adapt to the technology.

Moreover new technology needs new members to guide them. So whenever there’s a problem in it (after all it’s a machine right? How much can it handle?) we need highly educated technicians who thoroughly knows each nook and corner of it.


You know what the best part is too. Energy is saved pretty much. MacPro goes green. Just a corner at your table would be just fine. It’s the dream of every person to own such a computer.
Well then off you go. Place your orders as soon as possible. The firm has started to take orders.

Chronicles of Service: Mac Pro

At least they seem to be; because it may be entirely different ... "Mackie" was studio technician at a major reseller for 10 years, from 2001 to 2011. A unique position to observe the Apple machines from another angle that of their small or large seeds and defects. Here is the first of these columns on the summer "SAV Mac".

"Apple and its great migrations, remember there was the transition from 68K to PowerPC, Mac OS to Mac OS X and now Apple announced mid-2005 color: the abandonment of PowerPC chips in favor of Intel. The Power Mac G5 and Xserve G5 begin to be replaced in summer 2006, completing the migration processor led to the charge since January of that year. In this case, the Mac Pro that interests us.

No New Mac Pro

As we have said many times, it lacks any new Mac Pro ... the new processors. Despite the various rumors of June, there is little chance that a new model to be presented this month: the Xeon adapted to Sandy Bridge Mac Pro are not yet available. Intel presented several lines Xeon Sandy Bridge, but none that can not fit the Mac Pro.

Testing the 27 "iMac" Thunderbolt - part V

Even in the video where the Mac Pro is traditionally at home, Westmere processors marking time: we find the fine balance between the raw frequency and the number of cores, which directly determines the performance for different applications. Handrake, for example, recognizes only core logic: this iMac is fighting against is with four cores to eight cores Westmere Mac Pro to € 3 400. But Handbrake does not take advantage of all the subtleties of Xeon processors, while the raw frequency is a key element of its operation: the iMac, with half of a good heart but more than the gigahertz Mac Pro, dominates with insolence. He can deal with anything against the twelve core Mac Pro to € 8 300: the frequency difference is less important than offset by the use of three times as many hearts.

The very marked differences in the Photoshop tests confirm the very different profiles of these machines. The DHT test uses a lot of old filters, so that the differences are erased in excess of five hearts (real and virtual) so the iMac is the hand with its higher frequency. The RAT test, it is much more realistic and simulates the touch of a photo with the latest filters: Although Photoshop performance peaked with massively multi-core configurations, the Mac Pro are Westmere at this time.

A beautiful iMac € 2 700 can be put in the closet of Mac Pro much more expensive? In most areas, yes, and widely: it shows, once again, the effectiveness of the Sandy Bridge Intel platform. The self in need of power will therefore turn to the iMac, which is not only the most powerful iMac ever made by Apple, but Mac is also one of the most powerful of the current range. The difference between these two lines is therefore not about raw power, but the concept: the iMac is an all-in-one, unlike the Mac Pro, which is still relevant for its scalability, ensuring a sustainability specific to dampen investment, therefore that represent the largest configurations. It also remains the machine of choice for certain niches, here for its computational capabilities, there to him the possibility of adding expansion cards. Still, the iMac is more than ever like the computer to do everything from Apple.

Testing the 27 "iMac" Thunderbolt - part IV

It is indeed one of the great surprises of this model: despite the powerful processor and the summer climate of the test period, the temperature of the iMac Sandy Bridge has remained surprisingly low levels. Most of the time, CPU temperature stays around 30 to 35 °: the ventilation system is effective and extraction points at the top of the screen and behind the foot, once hot, now warm. When exporting Aperture, the temperature rises to 48 °. A video encoding where the four cores are at 100% for 25 minutes? 55 °. The fans always keep the composure of the machine without a voice, a sharp contrast to the previous generation and some MacBook Pro Sandy Bridge.

This discretion only to mask the raw performance of the iMac Core i7: they reach or exceed those of most of the range Mac Pro. This is not the first time we see the top of the range iMac rival the Mac Pro or exceed, but it's the first time that the difference is so great and strong.

The distinction is clear: the common tasks, the iMac Core i7 overwrite the entire Mac Pro. It drives not only its direct rival, the Westmere Mac Pro 2.4 GHz or eight cores (€ 3,400), but offers the luxury of making lousy Westmere Mac Pro 2.93 GHz twelve hearts, a machine ... € 8 300! We cannot even say it's SSD benefit: the twelve core Mac Pro was tested with excellent Toshiba 512 GB SSD So Sandy Bridge architecture that works wonders on the cuts in the Finder or the export Garage Band or Aperture. Match almost zero on the export music with XLD.

A test like Cinebench shows that Westmere Mac Pro keeps the advantage in raw power; the iMac is above the Nehalem Mac Pro. The entire iMac line is better than the Mac Pro graphics side, a habit now.

Expect soon new Mac Pro and Mac mini!!

Once is not custom, the Apple Store did not close its doors during the keynote on Last week. But this is probably only a postponement. The news should be plentiful in the coming weeks.

Furthermore Final Cut Pro X officially announced by Apple to the end, Apple would soon revise the MacBook Air, and an update of the Time Capsule is still valid.

To this list, 9to5Mac adds two new products that would begin to rare server editions of Mac Pro and Mac mini. Nothing too surprising, these products have not been updated since about a year. In recent months, it was rumored that the tower Apple is reviewed in depth so as to enter more easily in the racks of a data.

The entire Mac range is announced with a shipping time of 24 hours at the Apple Store with the exception of core Mac Pro 12 and declination server, both available with a delay greater than or equal to 3 days.

By the way, we note that if one has the right to rumors to the entire Mac range, a machine is beyond this game, it's the white MacBook. Yet it is now the oldest model in the range. Has he gone to meet the same fate as the eMac on the end? The latter was revised only very rarely did before Apple finally abandoned.

The iMac 27 "Quad-Core SSD stands up to the Hexa-Core Mac Pro

The iMac 27 "high-end SSD version is a bomb that can stand up to a powerful Mac Pro is the conclusion of a test of Macworld U.S. The two ranges meet very different needs, but there is zones between the two where the iMac may well do meet the performance requirements of some professionals.

Tests of two iMac Quad Sandy Bridge next generation had already shown that the Mac Pro Quad entry received a few lessons from these machines. But the configuration custom made by Macworld drives the point, this time facing the Mac Pro hexa core, the point of making the Mac the most powerful measured so far.

The magazine took an iMac 27 "Core i7 Quad at 3.4 GHz with its 1TB drive and replaced it with a 256 GB SSD The bill then goes from 1900 € to 2600 €. To be exact, Macworld DSS has recovered his iMac Core i5 and installed in 27 "(but more can be done simply by the set of options at the Apple Store) The Mac Pro took in default, it costs € 3599 with a 1 TB hard drive and 3 GB of RAM.

Of the 17 tasks comprising the application testing of Macworld, the iMac went to the Mac Pro in 14 of them. However the number of cores (four and six against both configurations manage hyper threading) gives the advantage to the Mac Pro with some applications. The Mac Pro is 13% faster with Handbrake, 21% in the test of Cinebench CPU and 28% on the test MathematicaMark. It also compares two different generations, the Mac Pro are those of 2010 and expected their cooling.

If we compare this iMac from its hard drive and SSD versions, the second configuration is 18% faster on average. This model SSD is 35% faster in copying a 1GB file, 44% faster in a file decompression, 17.5% faster to open a Word document in Pages and iPhoto import is two times faster. For all that relates only to actions seeking the processor, the difference is - no surprise - insignificant.

Finally, this iMac 27 "face a 21.5" Core in i5 2.7 GHz SSD also shows that the former is generally 16% faster. Task-Finder, file compression iMovie and export the results were either identical or marginally better on the 27 "Core i7.

Logically, the Core i7 took the lead in the processor tasks: 30% faster with Handbrake, with 37.5% and 41.5% with Cinebench, MathematicaMark. It should be remembered that in the new iMac line, all are four cores, but only Core i7 hyper threading manage virtually doubling their number. Finally, although the gain of the SSD is evident in adopting instead the hard disk, divide its internal storage capacity by four face configuration 1 TB

iMovie: iPad beats MacBook Pro and Mac Pro?

AppAdvice site has developed some small rapid tests for judging the performance of iMovie on the Mac in iPad and basic tasks. The findings are quite surprising: in most of the tasks of copying and coding, the iPad 2 was the fastest, even faster than the MacBook Pro or Mac Pro five times more expensive.

The first test involved the importation of a two-minute video from an iPod touch, 4G towards iPad (with the Camera Connection Kit) and Mac (with the import feature in iMovie). The iPad 2 performs this task in 25.5 seconds, five fewer than the iPad first name, two times faster than a Mac Pro, more than four times faster than a MacBook Air.

For the second test, it was necessary to create an empty project, place the same two-minute video, and then export it in HD 720p: again, the iPad 2 is the fastest. IOS devices end up in a handkerchief, far ahead of the Mac.

Finally, the last test, a bit closer to real conditions: it is this time a small assembly with the same two-minute clip, a title, a soundtrack, and an image to open and close the all exported to HD 720p. This time, the iPad 2 does not prevail: the Mac Pro or MacBook Pro 17 "five times more expensive ones are faster. We note however that the iPad 2 dominates the head and shoulders iOS other devices, this which was not the case in the previous test.

We wanted to check something with an iPad first generation with the latest version of iMovie to IOS, and a MacBook Air 11 "also features the latest version of iMovie for Mac .... The idea was to try to find the reason for these differences: Software Optimization or hardware or difference in the encoding process?

We used a 720p HD video file (H.264) 3:35, just exported in HD 720p. The output file weighs 285 MB side iPad, 262 MB Mac side, and it is difficult to see any difference: in short, the iPad would "cheat" not on compression. But where the MacBook Air is 1:10 p.m. to encode and export the file, does that iPad 03:03 (and this is a first generation model).

It is quite possible that this difference reflects a subtle blend optimization hardware and software with a version designed iOS closer to the hardware platform of the iPhone, iPod touch and the iPad. iMovie on the Mac operating correctly about multiple cores, but it would not be surprised to learn that the IOS version is a massive use of computing by the graphics chip and some advanced features of the ARM platform dedicated to video - it could explain the differences between the two generations of iPad, the graphics chip of the iPad 2 being much more powerful than the first generation. He can only hope that Apple emissions both bolt around the Mac version...

In the forth coming week you may expect a review is about windows7 phone and iPhone comparison.
