Sure this is for professionals. What a silly argument it has been to say Apple doesn't care about professionals. Lots of iDevices are used by professionals every day. Clearly this isn't for all professionals as needs vary.

Personally I think it is potentially limited for many pros but then hasn't the MacPro always only gone so far. If Grant is happy with Resolve running on a prototype then for many it is a suitable machine for professional work, particularly if you are running X.

Weird shape, but all my machines are in a machine room so no-one will see it. Will it outperform a box that I can make for less money? Probably not but not everyone wants to build their own grunt box. Will I be able to get better performance with Resolve on my rack mount Win 7 boxes? I should think so. Do I need FCPX in my post finish workflow? So far still no. I am happy for the FCPX editors that a more serious box is going to be available. I don't think I need it to run my Legacy system and until demand for Legacy stops, my 2009 MacPro is suitable.

This pretty much is what Craig has been guessing at for a while so no real surprises and well guessed sir. I sense huge relief from many that there is a serious bit of kit coming from Apple after three years but shouldn't we wait for the benchmarks and price tags?
