Not a peep about the Pro? Does anyone know if Autodesk have managed to put those GPUs to use?

That is the most important question about the new Mac Pro. Cuda is important to alot of workflows, so what will happen?
Smoke on Mac does support some ATI cards, but Autodesk has always pushed the Nvidia Quadro series as the card of choice. But, I've also heard that Smoke on Mac doesnt run any faster using the Quadro...

Personally, I'm not terribly excited by Apple's choice for GFX cards, but it'll be interesting to see how their decision pans out. Hopefully, it's not another FCPX decision...

I'm assuming that we will see a decent performance improvement with Smoke on the New MacPro's.

Smoke uses OpenGL to do its heavy lifting on system graphics hardware - making it more agnostic to specific graphics cards than Resolve or Premiere.

That said, I think a bigger shift in the future will come from OSX Maverics finally bringing an updated OpenGL (v4.1 I think) to us Mac users.
