Here are one of a few articles to point out that since Nvidia has been tuned to run Adobe so well, especially Premeire, why Apple is not offering the Nvidia cards. What a shame. Also read the comments.http://nofilmschool.com/2010/07/appl...-new-mac-pros/
the part about the pro not making it into the front page really got me thinkng. We all know Apple could release a non server workstation for 1/3 the price or release the iMac configs without the screen, throw it in a box and call it your mid range machne as ProSumers make up a large segment. In fact. It's the same crowd buying all the gadgets. Now add gamer, musician, composer, graphic artist et-cetera, and Apple would make a bundle.
Then it hit me. If these new workstations cause post production houses to go windows 7, we'll see Nvidia cards real fast. Shouldbe interestng to see how this plays out. One guy mentioned a hackntosh. I wonder how well that woud work. Then it hit me again. Osx86 offers drivers for all kinds of cards. Maybe that's where we get them?????
