so much for cooling and airflow
I suspect you can build an equal or better PC for half the price.
I guarantee it
For performance gains like that to be seen in Final Cut Pro X, it's the GPU that's to thank, not the CPU. A current-gen 8-core Xeon is not going to be 600% faster than a last-gen 6-core.
This is why Apple is a sinking ship, I swear there design team must be smoking crack
A apple a day, will not make android go away!!!!!
I sometimes wonder if Cook got drunk and stumbled into the design team's office declaring the Mac Pro must be a cylinder...ruining a perfectly pragmatic concept of a computer with edges.
You might suspect you could build a comparable PC for half the price... But you'd be wrong.
That PC build is really something to behold.
Let's all wait for the review, which I hope will have a great deal to say about ventilation and loudness, in addition to performance stats. I must confess that despite my hearty dislike for the firm, the specs for this monster make my mouth water - but specs are one thing, performance another !...
mhenriday:specs are one thing, performance another
I'm sure that it performs well. It probably cools itself well too.
If I had lots of cash, I'd buy it. My 24" iMac was excellent for working with my photography.
Don't part with your illusions. When they are gone you may still exist, but you have ceased to live.
Really interested to see what this puppy can actually do...
Well, Neil, the model that HH is going to be testing seems to be absolute top of the line, and therewith a tad beyond my pay grade. Moreover, I'd be ashamed to use my old HP LP2465, which has served and continues to serve me very well, with this fruity monster ; anything less than a 27" 4K monitor would be an insult. So I'm just going to have drool from afar....
All hail the pretty trashcan.. I bet there is a market in making some sort of shelf/rack/enclosure that can hold 3-4 of these on their side in a single 4U rack soon enough.
