You know one thing I just thought of, is now days with everything shrinking, like mother boards, SSDs shrinking, processors, etc, if they would have used the old mac pro case, they would have done crazy things.  Things like 16 SSDs, 4 processors, and what not.  I mean if they would use the exact same case but taken everything out.  Child please, how many mac minis could you stack inside of a carved out Mac Pro case? hey thats not a bad idea :)  Probably like 24?  That...
I don't know I have been trying to get info on Xeons, I got it twisted with the chips that allows 4 Processors on board I think I don't know, been up all night, misread maybe.  So it's DUAL PROC?  wow I didn't see that, I could have swore I read about 12-core haswell or something, whatever maybe not, I don't know, but I didn't see how you could put two in the Cylinder? on the Apple site breakdown... we will see I suppose...  I could have swore in the conference he said...
Yeah but the way this is going you're probably going to be starting at a 256 GB RAM DISK PCIe 3.0, which you will upgrade later, to 512 or even 1024 GB, easily pop out chip put in another.  If it's supports 64 GB of RAM, you are looking at 16GB chip for starters and popping in another 16GB chip and another and another.  I hear the processor is upgradeable too.  The GPUs no. :(  That's pretty cool upgrading...  but you want what?  umm... Fibre Card?  TBolt2... umm? what...
  I think GPU upgrade days are over right?  I mean do you know how hard it's going to be to couple THUNDERBOLT with GPUs from here on out?  That was probably one the major problems.  I wouldn't doubt, if this thing could drive 6 1080p displays, with thunderbolt and hdmi, this is serious junction in computing.  I just can't figure out which one is the Ferrari and which one is the CAT Truck.  The GPUs are the Ferrari and the Truck is the CPU? or the other way around.  Cause...
  I don't know entirely, but I am thinking, as much as guys have been crying about SLI on the PC side, two big GPUs and a 1 TB RAM disk is pretty fly.  The other thing to think about is that the 12 core is a new step, because Apple maybe saying lets get rid of two PROCs and only do 1 and not worry about messing with two processors anymore.  Because really what is a 12 core chip?  Two 6 core Chips.  Here is the real upside, if they use the weird ones (chips) that have 2...
Don't forget about the SPACESHIP CAMPUS!!   Oh and to add RAM DISK for everybody is now the new norm?  Wow we have come along way from running our OS from an Optical Cartridge...
Hah good point.  That's a great reason for Apple to make it Cylindrical, if you copy that, you're a joke, but Apple won't be which is cool...   true on the second point too Dang
I am scared tho... don't be scared - ICP   It's just that... this thing man Damn, I hate to say things like this but were talking $10,000 or minimum $5,000, THE LOWEST CONFIG, $4999.99   Seriously,  Look at those parts   The 1 TB SSD PCIE 3.0? $#!+  Thats, like $1,500   Two Video Cards, what's that without looking?  $2,000? or $1,000   Ram there's another $1,000   PROCS  minimum $1,500 a piece x2 = $3,000   That's $7Gs right there, and we're...
The Thunderbolt could be 6 Firewire ports with adapters.   I am just laughing at how people thought Apple would kill the Mac Pro line...   Like Apple programmers and the people that work at Apple don't want the fastest thing money can buy!  So they made it, and are going to sell it to us, to those that can afford it.   I think apple is making a serious move with OpenCL and AMD/ATI.  Apple is serious about utilizing resources and power in their systems at all...
Apple's new System 7 was mainly made to support new color capabilities rather than radically rethink the Mac's graphical computing environment. I had to laugh a little at that. When Apple added Color Quickdraw, that was one of the most exciting times ever... it was radical!
