Apple Mac Pro "Quad Core" 2.93 2009 Specs

Mac Pro - BTO/CTO - MacPro4,1 - A1289

About This Mac

This device is a BTO/CTO device which is nearly identical to MB871LL/A. We have listed this device separately as it has been configured with an upgraded processor when compared to the base model. This has been done to make it easier to catalog as well as easier to read.

The Mac Pro in 2009 had some difference from its predecessors but was certainly packed with the more power to drive your work. The differences include its Turbo Boost capacity for 2.93 GHz to up to 3.2 GHz. Also there was the disappearance of the Fire Wire “400” ports but not a reduction in the overall number of FireWire ports as the two FireWire “400” ports were replaced by 2 more FireWire “800” ports, a similar exercise was carried out on the PCIe expansion slots as four PCI e 2.0 slots were now present as opposed to 2 PCIe and 2 PCIe 2.0 ports. The Mac Pro was still the most expensive of all products but its price was worth the quality of the machine.

Storage

The device was built with 640.0 GB Serial ATA (3 Gb/s) hard drive storage with a disk speed of 7200 RPM.

    Screen Size and Resolution

    The Mac Pro had a primary display support for up to 8 displays and a resolution support of 2560×1600 and also a 2nd display support of 1920×1200.

      Inclusive Features

      The Mac Pro includes the following features and ports:

      • Standard AirPort Extreme 802.11a/b/g/n (Optional)
      • Bluetooth 2.1+EDR
      • 2 Gigabit Ethernet ports
      • Four FireWire “800” ports
      • Five USB 2.0 ports
      • 18X DL “Super Drive”
      • A Mini DisplayPort and a dual-link DVI port.

           

            Processor & Graphics Processing Unit (GPU)

            The Mac Pro had Mac OS X 10.5.6 (9G3553) pre-installed on it.

The graphics processor is NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 with 512 MB of GDDR3 memory.
