Being the series of the most powerful computers fabricated by Apple, Mac Pro is a workstation and server computers line for professionals who need the workstation-level power, speed and performance. In fact, Apple is known for its design features, and the Mac Pro line is no exception. The Mac Pro is also the most upgradable Mac, offering a high level of internal access. Its internal structure makes adding and replacing components easy.
Note than unless you have a specific requirement for high-end features, such as RAID to perform Mac OS X Server functions, video edition, 3-D graphic design, scientific research and so on, you shouldn't consider buying Mac Pro, and go to Apple's consumer models, instead.
The first generation of Mac Pro was announced on August 7, 2006 at the annual Apple Worldwide Developers Conference, and the second generation of Mac Pro, completely redesigned, was presented in 2013.
Note that the 2010 and later Mac Pro systems were available with one or two central processing units (CPU) with options giving four, six, eightor twelve cores. The eight core standard configuration Mac Pro uses two Quad core ×8 Intel E5620 Xeon CPUs at 2.4 GHz. It could be configured with two Hexa Core Intel Xeon X5670 CPUs at 2.93 GHz. Since the CPUs are socketed, the CPUs can be removed and replaced with compatible 64-bit Intel Xeon CPUs.
