And I'd completely agree with that. I guess my general point is that people put too much emphasis on "form" and not "function". If Apple can outbound GPU and PCIe via Thunderbolt, then really a tower replacement could be something much smaller, as long as it can hold the MacPro desktop class CPUs and enough RAM slots.

Unfortunately TB isn't there yet. So this is all theoretical.

So I remain convinced that Apple will release SOMETHING (either an updated MacPro or another design) that continues to fill this gap until TB can support enough lanes.

Here's a question. With video data throughput being most a separate issue, and Adobe and FCPX leaning more and more heavily on GPU power for real time playback, rendering, and encoding. How important is the CPU at this stage? What's the breakdown of responsibility between the CPU and GPU?
