            Processor Graphics Processing Unit (GPU)

            The Mac Pro has Mac OS X 10.5.1 (9B2117)  pre-installed. This is powered by two 3.0 GHz Quad Core 45-nm Intel Xeon E5472 (Harpertown/Penryn) processors with 12 MB of level 2 cache per processor (each pair of cores shares 6 MB), a 128-bit SSE4 SIMD vector engine, and 1.6 GHz “64-bit dual independent frontside buses”. The graphics processor is  an ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT with 256 MB of GDDR3 memory and two dual-link DVI ports.

            Memory & Architecture

            The device has 2 GB of 800 MHz DDR2 EEC “fully-buffered” FB-DIMM memory.  The RAM has a heat sink design that is a bit different from generic FB-DIMMs.  This is centered around a 64-bit architecture.
