We're presently using Media100 Suite2.1.5 on 2010 12core Mac Pros (MacPro5,1) with AJA Kona LHe and looking at upgrading to a new Mac Pro.

Is the new Mac Pro approved for Media100? Which core model is recommended?

Can/will it use AJA thunderbolt IO? If not, which thunderbolt PCI chassis is/will be supported?

Thanks,
Jaeson

Here is a chart that OWC provides for compatibility with their Mercury Helios 1 and 2 and the Sonnet Echo Express III expander. The LHe seems to work with all of them. Video capture cards are toward the bottom of the chart which includes information for many other types of PCIe cards. I just ordered a Helios 2 which is a 2 card box on Thunderbolt 2. The first Helios is a single card Thunderbolt 1. I will be using the Helios 2 I ordered with an Accelsior E2 PCIe SSD and possibly my Kona LHi in the future. Probably will add another eSata card to the other slot for now as I am keeping my 2010 and 2012 hexacore Mac Pro towers. That will give me 960 GB of PCIe SSD and 4 eSATA ports on the Helios. Will be running FCPX 10.1.1 on the 2013 Mac Pro when it arrives in April with this as my storage hub. Re 2.1.5, don't have the 2013 Mac Pro yet but certainly intend to use it if possible.

I am still waiting for our ordered Mac Pros. Hopefully they will arrive soon and I can do some initial testing. I will report back.

Got my new Mac Pro, OS 10.9.2, Hexacore, 64 GB, 1 TB SSD, dual D500. 2.1.5 is working fine so far. Nothing heavy duty yet, but old projects from 2.1.3 and 2.1.4 are working with it. Some stuff even earlier in 2.x. On an Ultrastudio 4K right now, will probably be trying my AJA LHi in OWC Helios 2 expansion chassis, but have other things I'm working on right now.
