The integrated memory controller, along with fast DDR3 ECC SDRAM at either 1066MHz or 1333MHz, gives Mac Pro an increase in memory bandwidth over previous generations. More bandwidth allows for more data to be fed to the processor faster, helping each core spend its time processing data, not waiting for information to arrive. The Mac Pro features 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 ne

The main thing I like about it is the design of the case, which makes it beautifully easy to open and add extra hardware should you wish. Needless to say, this is not straightforward with an iMac, clunky with a PC and next to impossible with a laptop/Macbook. Some of the downsides (even if it is working as specified) are the lack of ports (it doesn't even have a USB3, just USB2's) and the usual assortment of Apple ports (firewire in this case) which are technically good but that no-one else wants to play ball with.
But the downtime on this machine in the twelve months since I bought it (and it's not cheap) is an embarrassment. I am not particularly anti or pro Apple and recently - mainly for compatibility and the Apple lack of virus worries - bought an iMac. The iMac works like a dream and restored my faith in the company. Ok, it still is low on ports (and includes redundant thunderbolt ports) but it works amazingly well, is beautiful to use and look at it, and feels state of the art. The Mac Pro might have a high spec, but it's accident prone nature makes it feel to me more like a computer that was bought six years ago instead of twelve months.
If you want an Apple, stick to an iMac.
