It better be stackable, since I'll need room for my hard drive chassis, my thunderbolt to pci chassis, and who knows what else.

Maybe it will all fit inside my old Mac Pro tower case, once I clean it out.

I made this comment elsewhere...did you see how TINY it is next to the current MacPro...it barely comes up to the power button...you'll probably be stacking this on top of something else or leaving it on your desk (if the fans are quiet).

It looks halfway portable.

Strike that, it is portable.

9.5" high, 6.5" diameter

The cooling system/fan is pretty advanced and apparently quiet.
I guess they really do think its going to go on top your desk.

Oh, quit exaggerating. It's 9.9" x 6.6".

[Jeremy Garchow] "Heh heh"

Really? More like "Hee Hee". The only truly innovative thing about it is the case and the rear motion-sensor that lights up the ports when the case is turned. The rest has been predicted and assumed for over a year, no?

I was actually laughing at what we said. I thought it was funny no matter if it's true or not.

i dont understand the AMD GPU's.. why have one line (laptops/imac) use NVIDIA and the other line (macpro) use AMD?

It's classic Apple, though, right?

My guess is the next FCPX will be heavily optimized to work with those very GPUs...
I wouldn't see them going with Nvidias cards which would be great for Adobe users.

Shouldn't matter for Adobe. Premiere uses OpenCl as well as CUDA and Pr CC can use multiple GPUs.

What about After Effects? Isn't that only CUDA? For now, at least....

Apple doesn't want to sell to Adobe users?

Since mac users make up half of Adobe's user base, why wouldn't they?

I think that Apple likes more open standards (such as OpenCL) rather than more closed ones (like CUDA).

Heheh. Maybe there should be a red "are you sure about that?" label next to that "post direct" button...

Comment withdrawn. :)

I got nothing...why do YOU think they went with AMD?

[John Pale] "I got nothing...why do YOU think they went with AMD?"

It's a MacPro and the computer is sold by Apple?

Apple chooses components for very specific reasons never having to do with what the fastest most intense system available.

They must like the Nvidia mobile chips for battery life/power reasons.

They must like AMD for openCL and other reasons, maybe with the redesign it has to do with heat distribution in a smaller space, etc.

They like them because they got the best deal and the biggest profit margin, which they'll stash away on some Caribbean island where it'll do nobody any use at all.

Exactly. Open CL is not as fast as Open GL, just faster and easier to code.
They got a good deal on AMD. Period. I have hasted all of AMDs offerings recently.

[larry towers] "Open CL is not as fast as Open GL, just faster and easier to code."

OpenCL and OpenGL have nothing to do with each other.

OpenCL is about massively parallel heterogenous general computing. OpenGL is about graphics exclusively.
