Putting new life into an old Mac book Pros
As seen in the first round of standards, the new Mac book Pros is much of a dedicated workstation than an all-purpose PC. Actually, unless one uses a pro app that can take benefit of manifold processing cores, a trapped-out iMac may do better than the brand new Mac Pro.
It started with the stock 2012 quad-core as well as dual 6-core Mac Pros and they were updated with fast flash storage, a 32GB of RAM and a fast Mac edition Sapphire HD 7950 graphics.
The stock 2012 3.2GHz quad-core Mac Pro along with a 1TB hard drive, Radeon HD5770 graphics and 6GB of RAM, received a 9 score of 171. After updating, the same system received 241 scores, 41 % more as compared to the stock system. The updated quad-core 3.2GHz Mac Pro was capable of copying a 6GB database from one part to another of a drive in less than 1/5th of the time of the supply model.
Updating the 12-core 2012 Mac Pro hoisted a 9 score by a healthy 31 %, despite the fact that the new 8-core Mac Pro was then also 37 % faster on the whole than the upgraded 12–core model.
A new Photoshop action was also run which was made up of tasks which can take benefit of hardware acceleration. The grumbled-up 2012 Mac Pro quad-core was 31 % faster than the supply model, but the brand new Mac Pro was quicker, 22 % faster than the updated 2012 Mac Pro.
