Redesigned Mac Pro coming
I don't think we ever got those GPU upgrades that were promised. What do you think the New Mac Pro will look like? Will it have a 3.5" drive bay? Or will it be 20% thinner and all ports have been replaced with Type-C?

Apple bet on multi gpu and lost.
All I really know is that I still won't be able to afford one.

I'm happy with my system. I'm aware I can build a far better one now, but I just can't seem to find a real justification.
My logic is infallible. Resistance is futile.

Yeah, I can afford a brand new Mac Pro when it's 5 years out of date.

NVidia's starting to release drivers for OS X for their recent cards.

Better late than never?

But they're still single core. The trash can pro was designed in anticipation of multi core gpu availability and that just fizzled out.

That said, I wanna buy a used one. I think that it would last me quite some time.

Great, now just pop open your Mac Pro, stick in a pair of GTX 1080s, and... oh.

Fuck yeah. I will have one, at some point. I still own my Cube, too, even though it sits in the attic, boxed up.

I understand all those words, but they're in a completely foreign context for me.
