[Bill Davis] "In the new MacPro approach, there's a specific solution (Afterburner) that moves the transcoding load off of both the CPU and the GPU and onto a special programmable processor that is designed to eliminate playback bottlenecks.

I think it should be noted that this is an extra-cost option. And it's essentially what RED did with their RED Rocket cards years ago, and now again through their deal with NVIDIA. It's a nice addition, but frankly, ProRes/PRRAW was not a heavy lift on Apple hardware to begin with. Let's see if people develop for it beyond those codecs.
