what i think of new Mac Pro 2018, well i will be UpGrading, But Back to Windows, i tried too give Apple a Chance, and ,very Limited what it comes to Apps And Programs, in other Words, And Notes, Apple "SUCK", they Failed BIG< ever since RIP Steve Jobs, Apple has gone back peddling.
+ZONEofTECH I am looking forward to something that would a tower. It was the 2013 trashcan design that made me get into Hackintosh computers. I would like something close to the old G4 Power Mac. That was really cool
I think Apple had issues initially with 3rd party video cards possibly not working on a Thunderbolt 2 daisy chain. That may have been why they changed the large Mac Pro tower to the small cylinder design using proprietary video cards. So how will they solve the issue in the new 2018 design? From the look of your concept drawing are you're guessing that 3rd party video cards will pipe the video output back into the computer so Apple's own I/O can handle it? If so what about the I/O ports of other types of PCI E cards?
for Now iMac pro is true power of Mac technology.. making new Mac Pro??? wait for next generation of XEON processor 8nn technology.. 32 core in one chip.. and combine 2 chip .. become 64 core!!.. Maybe.. apple make technology 7nn.. for new MacPro.. wait and stay tune of new technology
So... if this new MacPro does appear, who is going to buy the iMac Pro ????? Nobody in the right mind actually, no point in getting the iMac Pro as it is not upgradeable whereas the MacPro will be (if rumours are to be believed). Apple shot themselves in the foot with the iMac Pro and I can see it being discontinued as it will be a real bad seller.
Nice speculation, but if they come out with a design missing user accessible PCI E slots and starting price of $10K, they'll lose me. So no I don't think they'll come out with a "custom" video card because then its not upgradable...if it was then why didn't apple release new cards for the trashcan? The point of this machine is to make it NOT custom, so you can upgrade ram, video cards, drives, etc...anything less than that will be a bummer.
I think I'll stick with my 2010 MacPro 5,1 12 core 3.06 GHz, 32 GB RAM. Just bought it in Jan. for about $800 US. I don't need 4K nor do I want to drop $3 or $4K on a 2018 MacPro. Sorry Apple, you'll have to look to others to increase your profit margin this year
Of course, if Apple really cared about their pro users, they wouldn't have left the Mac Pro without any upgrades for 5 years and then insulted their users with a non-upgradeable "pro" version of the iMac.
Has anyone pay attention to the fact that apple has a new mac pro out for about $2500 to $3000 or more; why they are using old stock. DDR3, Solid State, only 16GB RAM, for that much money whey not give us DDR4, 850 or 960 Evo or Pro and more than 16 GB RAM. In my eyes this is a joke, plus their 2013 are being refurbish in just under/over 3 years. Can I upgrade this myself?
If I want Mac I will just hackintosh thank you. Mac Pros these days are ridiculous, , impractically and pretentiously shaped, like some Scandinavian nightmare or something, and waaaaaay overpriced. Mac seems to think its for wealthy users that also are not hardware savvy. Like most people couldn't build their own if they wanted to. It's not that Mac reliability, plug/play isn't desirable... they could still keep the experience solid, but they should make it more like PC hardware experience. They should just make a proprietary chipped motherboard so you can run latest OS etc, but that conforms to PC mounting standards, they should use PC-like case, that is actually cool case, not pretensions crap, and that conforms to case standards, so that if owner wanted to they could easily put MB in a different case. It's like they want desktops to be single proprietary items like lappys or all-in-ones, which is completely ridiculous for a desktop. They should offer option for provision to dual boot into Windows. They should create Mac certified hardware partners for parts so you can modify that way. In other words, they should try to be more like PC world, while still being Mac, not the freaky perverse pretentious exclusive over-controlling attitude they have. Or maybe that is just firmly what Mac really wants to always be, idk. Mac's hardware designs, marketing and packaging approach, and costs literally keep me off of the OS, except that I may hackitosh. Which is admittedly a pain, but they give many of us 'no choice' with the totality of their attitude. If there was no hackintosh option, the OS wouldn't even be an option. It's like they are forever committed to a lower volume, higher priced model. Which obviously doesn't serve the public or increase the ubiquity of the platform's use. Like there should be such a thing as a 'luxury' OS or something. It's nuts.
Apple is really starting to suck for pro users. Apple became successful through the pro users. We bought their computers because they were reliable, upgradable and have a smooth workflow! Now Apple seems to focus more on the consumer apple fanboys. We knew why we payed the apple tax because we knew the qualities macs had over pc's. The new mac pro really has to be a modern version of the old tower liquid cooled mac pro's. Or else people will likely just build a hackintosh. Or even switch to windows completely. They have been neglecting the pro users for too long!!
Cool video also I think they will use like a 30 core Xeon or some Xeon with lots of cores and like a p6000 Quattro I know this will cost lots of money but you’re statement that amd will make a better new workstation grad gpu is unlikely I think
I don’t see anything very exciting from Apple. They are going to improvise or revolutionized much until people stop buying which won’t happen until 3rd party computers get made a lot better and sold for a cheaper price.
Come on, you don't really think Apple is going to make a higher resolution monitor then 8K hu... Even a 5K display is very rare to get and cost so much money. If they're going to make an 8K monitor i will eat my shoes...
Just bring the cheese grater back or something like the XServe rack. Both were pretty much perfectly designed for easy maintenance and made you feel like you were dealing with a machine. They put some hair on your chest when you were dealing with them
apple should make the first true 8k display that is yes 8192x4320 at 120hz plus hdr support and maybe oled or probably just keep it led panel at 30" and sell it for $7999 with the oled or the led for $4999
