[Bob Zelin] "THIS very fact is my #1 concern about the pending "new Mac Pro". Will Apple let us mere mortals open up the new Mac Pro and stick anything we want into it - without having to go to an "Apple Genius Bar" to do it - and without having to get only "Apple flashed hardware" where nothing else will work ? "

My guess is no they won't. The Mac Pro will come with beefy GPU options but will be on a multi-year upgrade cycle. If you want to upgrade your GPU mid cycle your only option will be an eGPU.

On one hand the Mac Pro won't have a user upgradable GPU, on the other hand the eGPU allows you to boost performance on any computer you use that has ThB 3.
