Upgrade company OWC today officially introduced Intel Xeon processor "turnkey" upgrades for the latest Apple Mac Pro 2013. Options include 8-Core, 10-Core, and 12-Core models. The processors are fully compliant with Apple technical specifications and power requirements and are fully tested, qualified, and guaranteed to meet or exceed the processors available from Apple.

Four models of Intel Xeon processors are available for Mac Pro upgrades, with two processors not available from Apple. The Intel Xeon E5-2650 v2 8-Core 2.6GHz processor with 20MB Cache retails for $1,498, and OWC claims it to be 25 percent faster than the entry-level Mac Pro.

The Xeon E5-2667 v2 8-Core 3.3GHz processor with 25MB Cache OWC reports to be 41 percent faster, and retails for $2,448. A 3.0GHz Intel Xeon E5-2690 v2 10-Core processor with 25MB Cache comes in at 45 percent faster than the low-end Mac Pro offering. The E5-2690 sells for $2,396.

Finally, the 2.7GHz Intel Xeon E5-2697 v2 12-Core processor with 30MB Cache is available, and is 46 percent faster than the low-end Mac Pro in stock configuration. It retails for $2,978. All prices include a trade-in of the existing processor in the Mac Pro 2013.
