    Configure Your 2008 3,1 8-Core Mac Pro

    Processor

    The 64-bit Mac Pro includes two Intel Xeon “Harpertown” processors giving you 8 processor cores.

    Memory

    This dual-processor Mac Pro supports up to 64GB of DDR2 667MHz memory in eight slots. Choose more memory to improve overall system performance.

    Hard Drive / SSD - Bay 1 more info

    Your Mac Pro includes four drive bays, allowing you to configure it with up to 16TB of storage using 7200-rpm SATA 3Gb/s drives, up to 2TB of storage using high-performance solid-state drives (SSD), or any combination of each type of drive. Configure each drive bay separately.

    Upgrading your boot drive from a hard drive to a solid-state drive will generate up to 3x faster boot time, 5x faster import/open/saving of large files, and 5x faster application start-up.

    All hard drives and solid-state drives are new.

    Hard Drive / SSD - Bay 2

    This Mac Pro includes four drive bays, allowing you to configure it with up to 8 terabytes of storage using 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s drives, up to 2 terabytes of storage using high-performance solid-state drives, or any combination of each type of drive. Configure each drive bay separately.

    Hard Drive / SSD - Bay 3

    This Mac Pro includes four drive bays, allowing you to configure it with up to 8 terabytes of storage using 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s drives, up to 2 terabytes of storage using high-performance solid-state drives, or any combination of each type of drive. Configure each drive bay separately.

    Hard Drive / SSD - Bay 4

    This Mac Pro includes four drive bays, allowing you to configure it with up to 8 terabytes of storage using 7200-rpm Serial ATA 3Gb/s drives, up to 2 terabytes of storage using high-performance solid-state drives, or any combination of each type of drive. Configure each drive bay separately.

    PCIe SSD / Flash Storage (as Boot Drive)

    Apple produced the Mac Pro with a SATA II (3GB/s) onboard drive bay controller. New SSDs are SATA III (6GB/s). Upgrading your SSD(s) from the onboard SATA II controller to a PCI-Express based SATA III controller will allow the SSD to perform at full speed; achieving up to double the speed.

    SATA II SSD's (Drive Bay) offer a max theoretical transfer rate of: read 285Mbps, write 275Mbps.
    SATA III SSD's (PCIe) offer a max theoretical transfer rate of: read 550Mbps, write 520Mbps.

    The new 'cylinder' Mac Pros use the newest technology flash storage drives. Via a proprietary and revolutionary system, we install the super fast flash storage drives in the tower Mac Pro. These drives achieve 900MB/s as a single drive and 1000-2000MB/s in striped-RAID configuration.

    Since these drives will be installed on a PCI-Express slot, the 4 drive bays will be free. Thus, allowing the SSD/flash boot drive plus 4x hard drives. Additional hard drives and SSDs can be installed in the optical bay upon request.

    Graphics

    Configure your Mac Pro with PCI Express graphics cards. Configure your Mac Pro with two cards to power up to six displays simultaneously for visualization projects and large display walls or choose one high-performance card for video editing and rendering.

    Optical Drive

    Your Mac Pro comes standard with one 18x double-layer SuperDrive that burns and plays both CDs and DVDs.

    USB 3.0 / USB-C / eSATA

    The Mac Pro comes standard with five USB 2.0 ports, two Firewire 400 ports, two Firewire 800 ports, and two Gigabit Ethernet ports.

    Enhance your Mac Pro with USB 3.0 (5GB/s), USB-C (10GB/s), and/or eSATA connections for external storage.
