New Mac Pros next week!
on Jun 7, 2012 at 2:31:16 am

Apple Insider, MacRumors, and 9to5Mac are all calling for the update to the Mac Pro next week at Worldwide Developers Conference. Model numbers and prices (AU) have leaked. One is to have server functionality. Check out:

It's a funny thing but I find this news bittersweet. I've spent so many of the past few months wrapping my head around a switch away from Mac Pros to PCs (b/c of the unknown future of the Mac Pro platform) that, now, I find myself less than thrilled by these rumors. I'd finally gotten comfortable with the idea and then this happens! LoL.

Moving my facility away from Apple computers was an easier pill to swallow when it was Apple making the decision for me. Now, not so much...

I never thought they would drop it. The Xeon's just came out in April. Glad my software and hardware has a future!

Jan,

Agree with you 100%. I was on the verge of purchasing a custom built PC running 64 bit Windows 7 to run Resolve, Premiere Pro, etc after having been on Macs since '89.

Threw in the towel with Apple last year with FCPX and their poor attitude towards the pro market.

I decided to wait until after WWDC before making the PC purchase just in case Apple pulls a rabbit out of their hat with Jobs gone.

This rumor announcement is a mixed blessing. It will have Thunderbolt and the new E5 Intel CPU by the sounds of it. It will outpace the other i7 PC boxes on the market unless they have dual CPUs in them. The specs are quite amazing. And maybe Apple will do a mea culpa to the pro market but maybe not.

Still not sure which way I am going to go but this coming week will be the true decision point.

-Andrew

I'm guessing they will have 13 cores. I mean they already did 12.

Sorry guys, but the Mac Pro will NEVER 'outpace' the PC counterparts because Apple severely limits the number of PCIe slots and lanes. My HP Z800 has 6 PCIe slots with 3 x16 lanes. Mac Pro has only 4 slots with only 2 x16 and a x4 and x1(maybe x4, can't recall). In addition, Apple limits the number of Ram slots so the new Mac Pro will be slower than its PC versions because the new E5 Xeons are Quad-channel which means you need 8 sticks of ram per CPU to run at full speed. I also have 8 SAS connections in my Z800 in addition to the 6 Sata.

Btw, Thunderbolt aka LightPeak is already out on PCs so that advantage is already gone; although, PCs have more PCIe slots so TB is not needed in the desktops anyways.

Last I checked, HP gives 25% off their Z800/Z820 line without asking.

Thunderbolt on PCs are still 6 months behind a workable implementation, be it at controller/driver level. That's fine, let the market and offerings mature before jumping into such an expensive connection.

WWDC has passed, no word as to an updated Mac Pro in their keynote. They might be "quietly" updated but I'm not holding my breathe - happy on my PC workstation.

As an aside, I just noticed the Retina Display logo looks like the old Photoshop v5-6 splash screen eyeball. *shrug*

Spoke too soon, looks like they pushed an update to their site. A few spec bumps with the processor but no Thunderbolt, no USB3, no increase in PCIe ports, no case redesign for more drive bays...

Boldly advertising it's 1.3x faster than the 2010's with the Xeon E5645 which is two years old. Granted, using the E5 or E7 series means a more expensive tower and they probably wanted to keep price point.

Tom, you are without a doubt the best advertisement for Mac users to completely avoid Premiere Pro.

Perhaps I should be more clear. What I am saying is that I can practically hear the people at Adobe wincing when you make a comment like that. Your screed like rants against the Mac are patently offensive. You win Adobe no friends amongst those of us who want PP to work well on the Mac (and Windows for those who choose). Denigrating the favorite platform of tens of thousands of professionals Adobe is trying to win over to their side is pretty lousy PR for them, since you have become their self appointed champion. What I said is no non sequitur.Also, your bastardization of a great Ray Charles song is truly childish. That is the only ridiculous (worthy of ridicule) statement I see on this page. It is you who appears to be ridiculous. I'll end with your favorite smiley to make it all better... :-D

Jim,I am tired of your angry paranoid tirades. You seem to be a very unhappy person looking to lash out and take out your frustration with the state of the Mac on those that surround you. This emotion even seems evident in your scowling avatar.Here is some advice, take some anger management courses or get some therapy. As you read some other folks responses to your rants, its obvious no one really interested in being subjected to this constant venting. You are an embarrassment to the reasonable, emotionally stable Mac owners of the world. Here's a new emoticon for your :P

PS I will not waste my time responding to anymore personal attacks
or delusional insults.

Look who's talking, Tom. I'm not going to waste any more time on you. My posts have always been positive except when you have said something either childish or insulting. Have a nice life.
