My Mac Pro has 32GB of RAM, it runs rather smoothly along with an SSD drive mounted on a PCI card and two other SSDs plus two other spinning disk drives.
If you want to see what can be done to a Mac Pro Silver tower take a look at the offerings of Create.Pro all the benefits of current models (apart from Thunderbolt), the advantage of getting a rebuild from these people is that you can get the latest Mac Pro Silver tower spec and then transfer your drives across to the newer machine. Then sell on your current tower. On Sunday, April 15, 2018 at 8:59:06 PM UTC+1, Jason Davies wrote: > > Hi folks > > My 2010 Mac Pro isshowing its age even with an SSD with the latest OS.
