Yeah but PCI Display Driver evidence from AMD says you can install a PCI e 3.0 GPU on an unreleased version of a Mac... that being the Mac Pro most likely.
Haswell's have bad graphics but it's normal for mainstream users so you won't even be sold an extremely high end GPU like the N780 or R7970 unless Apple has drivers being built/ already built by AMD or Nvidia.
Just build a PC instead. :)
DDR 4 RAM is coming this fall so I would wait though till Christmas.
Other than that... why do you need Xeon Processors...?
You have higher performance and higher bandwidth options available there. I'm not sure I personally need them anymore, but those are the things offered by such a solution. I'm not convinced Apple is really going to expand upon that $1000-2000 range beyond what they have, and an "xmac" type solution with a $2500 starting point is kind of ridiculous. Wizard wants to see one in addition to the current lineup. I don't personally think they would morph the mac pro into one. I'm not debating whether it would sell.
I just can't see them really building out what has become their slower growth area. The presence of rmbp + cmbp seems more transitional to me. They may just be seeing how many people buy the old ones due to the specific limitations of the newer ones. The issue of maintaining price points is more likely. They have certain goals in terms of margins and sales volume, and whatever nonsense people on here say at times, demand is not entirely elastic. It's not just whether people buy macs or PCs. It's also how often they choose to buy new ones.
