The Mac Pro “Quad Core” 2.8 (Mid-2010/Nehalem) is powered by a single 2.8 GHz Quad Core 45-nm Xeon W3530 (Nehalem) processor with a dedicated 256k of level 2 cache for each core and 8 MB of “fully shared” level 3 cache. Via custom configuration, it also could be equipped with a single 3.2 GHz Quad Core “Nehalem” Xeon (W3565) processor or a single 3.33 GHz Six Core “Westmere” Xeon (W3680) processor.
By default, it was configured with 3 GB of 1066 MHz DDR3 ECC SDRAM, a 1 TB (7200 RPM, 32 MB cache) 3Gb/s Serial ATA hard drive, an 18X dual-layer “SuperDrive” and an ATI Radeon HD 5770 graphics card with 1 GB of GDDR5 memory.
Expansion includes two external 5.25″ “optical” bays (one free by default), four internal 3.5″ “cable-free, direct attach” hard drive bays (three free by default), and four PCIe 2.0 slots (one free PCIe 2.0 x16 slot and two free PCIe 2.0 x4 slots with the default single graphics card installed).
Ports include five USB 2.0 ports, four Firewire “800” ports, dual Gigabit Ethernet, two Mini DisplayPorts and a dual-link DVI port, among others. AirPort Extreme (802.11a/b/g/n) and Bluetooth 2.1 EDR is standard.
Although the “Mid-2010” models look essentially the same externally as the “Early 2009” models, all “Mid-2010” models are equipped with faster graphics and there are significant technical differences for the higher-end “Westmere” model as well with faster processors and as many as twelve cores (two six core processors) via custom configuration.
