  • Processors

    The Mac Pro supports one Intel Xeon W-series processor. The Hyper-Threading support allows two threads to run simultaneously on each core -- macOS recognizes up to 56 total cores on the Mac Pro, 28 real and 28 virtual. It also supports "Turbo Boost" which automatically boosts the processor speed based on workload - so if an application is only using one of the 12 cores it will automatically increase the speed of the core in use and turn off the unused cores.


    The Intel Xeon W-series Cascade Lake-X processors have 6 memory channels. The Mac Pro has 12 memory slots, 2 slots per memory channel. We recommend selecting 6 modules to occupy all memory channels for optimal performance, while retaining half the slots empty for future potential upgrade. The 8 and 12 core processors support 2666MHz ECC memory. The 12, 16, 24, and 28 core processors support 2933MHz ECC memory.

    We install only matching sets of Hynix, Micron, or Samsung memory, the most reputable manufacturers which Apple uses as well. DDR4 2666MHz goes up to 128GB per module. DDR4 2933MHz goes up to 256GB per module.

    M.2 PCIe SSD - Bay 1 more info

    M.2 NVMe solid-state drives using the PCIe 3.0 controller are the latest and fastest technology. As a single drive, read speed is ~2500MB/s and write speed is ~2000MB/s In RAID 0 configuration, read speed is ~4000MB/s and write speed is ~3500MB/s. The RAID 0 offers increased drive speed, but if one of the two drives go bad, all the data is lost. Another option is to have two inpendent drives, which we recommend. The primary drive to be utilized for the operating system and applications. The secondary drive as a working drive for editing - footage, projects, sessions, cache. Having a dedicated drive for editing provides optimal performance.

    M.2 PCIe SSD - Bay 2

    Select an optional second NVMe drive. If the two drives will be in RAID configuration, they must be the same capacity. If the drive will be independent, it can be any capacity.

    RAID only supported if same drive is selected on both slot 1 and 2.

    Graphics (Primary)

    We assume the Mac Pro will support one, but ideally two PCIe 3.0 x16 full-length double-width graphics cards. If you are using Final Cut Pro, we recommend sticking with the ATI Radeon Pro series graphics cards. If you are primary working on Adobe applications, we recommend a single NVIDIA GTX or RTX graphics card since they take advantage of CUDA cores. If you edit on Divinci Resolve, we recommend dual NVIDIA graphics cards since it scales well with multiple cards. For audio production, the default graphics card (supporting four displays) is fine. Our NVIDIA graphics cards function exactly like a genuine Apple graphics card showing the boot and option screens. If an NVIDIA graphics card is selected, we preinstall the NVIDIA driver which is required for the card to perform properly.

    NVIDIA GeForce RTX Touring

    Graphics (Secondary)

    Choose an optional second graphics card if your editing application takes advantage of multiple graphics cards. Note that some applications may take advantage of a second graphics card, but you may only notice a minimal performance gain with the second card, thus it may not be cost effective. Please research forums regarding your application or ask us to see if it will be beneficial to add a second graphics card.
