We posted our initial testing of the Intel E5-2667 V2 8-core 3.30GHz processor in the Mac Pro 2013 last week after confirming that the new model’s CPU allowed user upgrades.
We’ve now had the opportunity to test more Intel processors: an E5-1660 V2 6-Core 3.7GHz and E5-2690 10-Core 3.0GHz.
Each processor was tested with 64GB of OWC memory installed.
