What stopping APPLE from asking AMD for custom APU/CPU designing like Sony and MS developed for their consoles? It will be cheap, and with current Chiplet design they can design multi chip design with CPU chiplet and and maybe even custom ASIC for l…
So what do you think about Ryzen 9 3950X 16C 4.7Ghz Boost @ $749? How many among you will go for Base $6000 MacPro instead of Ryzen 9 3950X/X570 TB3 Hackintosh? P.S- turns out 64C TR coming Q4, great timing to make 40K MacPro 28C owners angry.
tenthousandthings said: Note that all these processors are exact matches to current Intel products once you realize Apple is adding the L2 and L3 cache totals together to get that spec. User Pylons figured this out. Of course they will use …

Yes, and there is already 4x SSD PCIE Gen4 Raid adapters with ~15GB/s! Apple won't miss an opportunity for ultra expansive SD storage :-).
Lisa Su confirmed that TR3 is coming and since AM4 entered HEDT level of performance- TR3 will go higher too, and looks like AMD is giving Apple the luxury to launch it's MAC PRO with TR3 as the worlds powerful PC before any one else like I predict…
TB3 on AMD platform? Finally! So what do you think will stop Apple from dual sourcing CPU's from AMD also? ASRock is ready with its own mini-ITX motherboard based on the AMD X570 chipset, the X570 Phantom Gaming-ITX TB3. This tiny powerhouse one-…
YP101 said: The reason Apple not buying AMD TR CPU is package is too large for them.Also I don't think AMD mobile CPU line up is better than Intel. Anyway, current Apple's design moto as thin and slim won't help switch to AMD CPU any time soo…
Why apple not buying custom x86 APU's/Threadripper style? AMD can make it for them and it will be Apple exclusive -like AMD does for MS and Sony. Apple will save massive amount of $$$ if they drop Intel and all the problems with it ?(i9 TDP?). This …
How much longer you think Apple will wait for Intel's new 10nm CPU's? for Macboock Air they can go for their own chip, but what about MacBookPro? Another round of overheating i9 8C/16T? I am sure they would love New AMD APU with Vega graphics like …
So the lake of TB3 if going for AMD platform is solved now- New USB4 will implement TB3 .

Mark my words, New Mac Pro will be AMD based + Intel TB3 standalone expansion card. Intel has no CPU to add value to current iMac Pro 18C, and also no solution will be upgrade(future Intel's CPU's will require new socket). I think it will be semi-cu…
Mike Wuerthele said: I'd be completely on board with that, but I suspect a shift to an AMD CPU isn't going to happen. If not, what APPLE could use for their Mac Pro? until Q2 2020 Intel won't gonna have real 10nm competitor even for their c…
Hi all, I'm new here :-), I must say that IMO, this year APPLE gonna release the new MAC PRO with AMD's 7nm "ThreadRipper" variant, but custom made for APPLE specs (8CH Memory/different clocks?) and also 16GB/32GB Radeon 7. APPLE waited enough for I…
