Hi John,

we are a Danish company which builds professional, custom Mac Pro 5.1 with single or dual high-end GPUs, such as 1080Ti and Titan Xps.

I disagree with previous comment saying there is not much to gain.

1) the Pcie 2.0 is basically not a limit in any way for these machines, beside gaming, since there is more than enough bandwidth for anything, even on the x4 link (only 4-6% loss by putting a GPU in slot 3 and 4, and only under extreme stress)

2) the generation difference between Maxwell (9xx series) and Pascal (10x0 series) is amazing.

What is even more amazing is how the Mac Pro 6.1 cannot even compete at all, unless we sell eGPUs together with it.

As an example, a nice specced mac Por 6.1 (2013) 8 Core 3.3Ghz with D500s cannot even playback a 5K 72fps RED RAW clip.

A Mac Pro 5.1 with our modifications can run e.g. VEGA 16GB or 1080Ti, can play an 8K 48fps RED RAW clip at 24fps just fine.

And if you need any help, drop us a message ☺

Have a nice day
