Mac Pro Late 2013 3.7GHz i7 – ME253LL/A

The Mac Pro (ME253LL/A) in 2013 came with a radical change in its design as the tower form had been ditched for a cylinder form. There was a reduction of ports present, such as the total disappearance of FireWire Ports, but the power of the Mac Pro did not diminish in any way.

The Mac Pro “Quad Core” 3.7 (Late 2013) — is powered by a single 3.7 GHz Quad Core 22-nm Xeon E5-1620v2 processor with a dedicated 256k of level 2 cache for each core and 10 MB of level 3 “Smart Cache.” By default, it was configured with 12 GB of 1866 MHz DDR3 ECC SDRAM, a 256 GB SSD, and dual AMD FirePro D300 graphics processors with 2 GB of GDDR5 memory each. This Mac Pro model can support up to 3 5K displays (5120×2880), two using Thunderbolt 2 ports and one using the HDMI port. The storage was changed from the conventional HDD to a 256 GB SSD with upgrades on purchase to 512 GB or 1 TB available at extra cost.

Connectivity includes six Thunderbolt 2 ports, one HDMI 1.4 UltraHD port, 4 USB 3.0 ports, and Dual Gigabit Ethernet ports in addition to 802.11ac and Bluetooth 4.0.
