Killian Bell on early Mac Pro benchmarks.
The scores achieved by entry-level and mid-tier machines are similar to those you will get from a 2017 iMac Pro. In fact, iMac Pro and even the budget Mac mini achieve significantly higher scores in some tests.
The key phrase is …in some tests.
Benchmarks are not necessarily real-world, applications specific tests.
The Mac Pro is also customizable, which means when it does start to feel sluggish, users can swap out the existing RAM, GPUs, and more and install faster alternatives. That’s a luxury you don’t get with other Macs.
