Hard to find a "Cheese Grater" like this. Makes a great server or gaming desktop!240GB SSD + 1TB HDD. 1GB ATI Radeon HD 5870 Dedicated Graphics Card. Apple Mac Pro "Eight Core" 2.8 (2008) Specifications. Identifiers: Early 2008 - MA970LL/A - MacPro3,1 - A1186 - 2180. NOTE: These specifications reflect original/factory state and are meant as informative as to overall machine capabilities - Some components have been updated/changed as is reflected above. The Mac Pro "Eight Core" 2.8 (Early 2008) is powered by two 2.8 GHz Quad Core 45-nm Intel Xeon E5462 (Harpertown/Penryn) processors with 12 MB of level 2 cache per processor (each pair of cores shares 6 MB), a 128-bit SSE4 SIMD vector engine, and 1.6 GHz 64-bit dual independent frontside buses. Via custom configuration, this model could be equipped with a single 2.8 GHz Quad Core Xeon E5462 processor, two 3 GHz Quad Core Xeon E5472 processors, or two 3.2 GHz Quad Core Xeon X5482 processors. By default, it was configured with 2 GB of 800 MHz DDR2 EEC "fully-buffered" FB-DIMM memory, a 320 GB (7200 RPM, 8 MB cache) 3Gb/s Serial ATA hard drive, a double-layer 16X "SuperDrive", and an ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT graphics processor with 256 MB of GDDR3 memory and two dual-link DVI ports.
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), two PCIe x4 slots, and two PCIe 2.0 x16 slots (one free with one graphics card installed). Ports include dual Gigabit Ethernet, five USB 2.0 ports, two Firewire "400" ports, two Firewire "800" ports, and optical digital audio in/out, among others. Bluetooth 2.0+EDR is standard, AirPort Extreme (802.11g/n) and a modem are optional. Compared to the original Mac Pro that it replaced, the Mac Pro "Eight Core" 2.8 uses a more advanced architecture with faster and more efficient processors with larger level 2 caches, a more advanced vector engine, faster frontside buses (1.6 GHz instead of 1.33 GHz), faster memory (800 MHz instead of 667 MHz), support for optional faster Serial Attached SCSI drives (with the installation of the Mac Pro RAID card), and two 16-lane PCIe 2.0 slots.
Each of two 45-nm Xeon E5462 (Harpertown/Penryn) processors has four independent processor "cores" with 12 MB of level 2 cache per processor (each pair of cores shares 6 MB). It also features a 128-bit SSE4 SIMD vector engine, and 1.6 GHz 64-bit dual independent frontside buses.
2.8, 3, 3.2 GHz. Uses "800 MHz DDR2 ECC fully-buffered DIMM (FB-DIMM) memory" and has a "256-bit wide memory architecture". 2 GB of RAM installed as two 1 GB modules.RAM must be installed in pairs, and for "best acoustic performance" contain an "Apple-approved heat sink". Apple officially supports 32 GB of RAM in this model, but site sponsor OWC first discovered that it is capable of using 64 GB of RAM with appropriate high-density memory modules. By default, an ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT with 256 MB of GDDR3 memory is installed in a PCI Express 2.0 x16 slot.
It has two dual-link DVI ports. Other graphics card options included the NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT with 512 MB of GDDR3 memory or a NVIDIA Quadro FX 5600 with 1.5 GB of GDDR3 memory. All of the video cards offered have two dual-link DVI ports, and the Quadro FX 5600 has a stereo 3D port as well. Apple advertised that this model can support "up to eight 30-inch displays" (with four video cards installed, one card is installed by default and can support two 30-inch displays).
The default ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT is capable of supporting "digital resolutions up to 2560 by 1600" pixels and analog resolutions up to 2048 by 1536 pixels. The ATI Radeon HD 2600 XT is capable of supporting two 30-inch displays with a resolution of 2560x1600 in either dual display or mirrored mode. Also see: Apple Cinema Displays. 3.5 (25.4 mm). The system has two independent 10/100/1000BASE-T [Gigabit] Ethernet (RJ-45) interfaces with support for jumbo frames.
2 PCIe, 2 PCIe 2.0, AP. 4 3.5", 2 5.25".
This model has two PCIe x4 expansion slots and two PCIe 2.0 x16 expansion slots (in the default confugration one PCIe 2.0 x16 slot is occupied by the graphics card). Apple also reports that all slots provide mechanical support for 16-lane cards [and supports] 300W combined maximum for all PCI Express slots.
AirPort Extreme (802.11g/n) additionally can be installed at extra cost. In the default configuration, one internal 3.5" bay is occupied by a hard drive and three are free, and one external 5.25" bay is occupied by a "SuperDrive" and the other is free. The no longer available Developer's Note also documented "two unpopulated 3 Gbps SATA buses for expansion". Please note that these identifiers refer to more than one model. Also see: All Macs with the A1186 Model Number, the 2180 EMC Number, and the MacPro3,1 Model Identifier.
