guys text source is back with another comparison today we are comparing the $3,000 base model Mac Pro to our custom gaming PC which we built a few months ago for the same price if you guys haven't seen the videos that already here is the link to it alright so here are the specs for both machines you can pause the video if you need more time but for the sake of the video I'm going to continue we will be comparing booting speeds benchmark scores rendering speeds transferring speeds and lastly gaming performance to see which computer performs the best for the same cost keep in mind that we made it as far as possible we removed all the necessary background programs that are not needed to run the computer as well as disabling all the non-essential startup programs for the boot up test except steam alright so let's start the booting test here we go while Apple has already done booting just after 13 seconds we're going to speed up the PC just to find out when that starts and it looks like it just finishes shy of 40 seconds so the obvious winner for the booting time goes to Mac next up we have the benchmarks we ran two different programs the first being Geekbench and again we removed all the background applications so it won't reflect on the score and taking a look at the score looks like Mac's scored 30 to 74 for the single core and 13,000 27 for the multi-core whereas the PC scored 36 74 for the single and 22 0 46 for the multi making the PC the clear winner for the first benchmark test the next benchmark test was Cinebench r15 again nothing is running on the background taking a look at the scores it looks like the Mac clocked in at 77 frames per second with a Cinebench score of 662 whereas the PC clocked in at 124 frames with a score of 1140 3 which gives the point to the PC for benchmarks all right the next test is rendering a computer isn't all about gaming it's about getting work done as well so for video editing we installed Adobe Premiere Pro on both computers and use the same exact settings to render the same exact video we sped this up so we don't bore you guys to death and as you can clearly see the PC finishes first but the Mac Pro isn't that far behind moving out of data transfers we copied an 11 gigabyte movie file to the desktop for some reason it's showing that the file is a bit larger on the Mac but no matter it finishes minutes earlier than the PC we knew that as these were not going to stand a chance against the speeds of the PCIe flash storage already the last and final test is the gaming performance we ran the most intensive game note we could find that was compatible on both systems so we went with the game Metro last night on max settings for both computers and you can already tell by the footage you on the max average FPS fluctuated between 20 to 30 while the PC remained at a constant 60 to 70 frames throughout the game this recorded footage doesn't really do the test justice since the frames appear a lot lower than it actually is on both machines but it's pretty evident that the PC wins in this test with a super fast memory powerful CPU and work great graphics the Mac Pro seems to be a killer machine but when we stacked it up against our PC it had trouble holding its own and data transfer tested PC didn't stand a chance with the mac pro loading up just about everything much faster than the pc but the superiority pretty much stops there even though the Mac Pro's GPUs may be more than capable they they're not compared to the single GTX 780 when they were put up against each other from gaming to rendering video files in Adobe Premiere the 780 proved to be the superior card the Mac CPU was also bested by a 3930k during the benchmark tests even though the Mac Pro is fairly priced and has exceptional Hardware for the price it was put to shame by a PC that was built with the same budget of $3,000 in the end it does come down to personal preference the Mac Pro is elegant and revolutionary design makes a nice machine for anyone who's looking for a good performance desktop computer that can also handle moderate levels of professional video and photo work the PC is for someone who likes to be more involved in the creation process as one can make his PC part by part and customize it to its liking I'm going to personally stick with my PC I'm not that impressed with the Mac Pros performance yes the more expensive options will get better performance but the same can be said about the PC so before I go I want to thank Squarespace for making this possible and show
