...(aside from Apple who will no doubt sell a bundle of these to cylindrophiles) is the Hackintosh/Wintel integrating community...who will be able to put together machines with dual 12 core Xeons (48 cores including hyperthreading), PCIe3 slots for 4 nVidia GPUs and 8 ram slots for not much more money. Ain't it a great world when you can use a screw driver.

But if all you need is FCPX the Cylinder rocks.

Pixar and The Foundry are running demo's on the new MP tomorrow. Maybe you should call them and tell them why they really should use a hackintosh.

Of course Pixar has one of these, in case you wondered:

Why on earth would they run Hackintosh?

Macintosh versions of RenderMan or Nuke may be important for otherwise-Mac pipelines, but Pixar and Foundry customers use Windows or Linux when performance counts. Any CPU-bound solution would benefit from more processors, and any multi-GPU solution would benefit from more GPUs than are available in the next Mac Pro.

Well, as you said, they wouldn't. :-) A dumb reply by me to a dumb comment. :shrug:

Hardly dumb either way. To your point, the machines are capable of running Pixar and The Foundry software.

I see David's point, too, though. If you are buying hardware to use with a specific application, FCPX/M5 will want a new Mac Pro -- but for just about any other software, anything this can do, that can do better.

EXACTLY!

Gleeful since the practical territory that we silly "all we need is FCP-X" folks can handle with speed and uber efficiency - seems to be spreading like bad b-movie irradiated Godzilla poop fertilized kudzu!

(Mashed-up metaphor happily included at no extra charge!)

You say it, Bill, just like it is.

You are 100% Right. I will make some money off Apple for a change. I am typing this on a Hacintosh right now and it works great.
