[Walter Soyka] "Thunderbolt launched sometime in February. That's between 9 and 10 months on the calendar, so that's five and a half years in computer industry time, right?

The saving grace for the TB-less Mac Pros has been the glacial launches of Thunderbolt peripherals. If Thunderbolt peripherals were more ubiquitous today, it would hurt a lot more to not have Thunderbolt available on the Mac Pro."


I completely agree the lack of 6G SATA and up-to-date GPUs should not be tied to Intel's roadmap, but Thunderbolt absolutely is. Thunderbolt is Intel tech and requires Sandy Bridge, and unless Apple were to drop the Xeon for a Mac Pro refresh, we have to wait for Sandy Bridge Xeons to get Thunderbolt on a Mac Pro.

Best,
Andy
