Not sure if this is true, but it seems like I have heard that Intels 10 nm and TSMC's are quite different and that perhaps if Intels ever works, it will be noticeably better than TSMC's at the same line width. One of course has to also take into account that sometimes a tech number in nm refers only to SOME of the features, like maybe the company pushed one or a few features smaller while the overall chip is more represented by a larger nm number. No real way to tell without reading the tech papers. Listening to the "advertising" doesn't hack it.
You are right about them shipping them---we just bought some.
However, don't hold your breathe on speed. Ours went from Shanghai, to Memphis (Fed BarX) where live, to Japan, to Memphis. NOT fast---3 days projected and 10 days or more to deliver.
FedEx stinks-----but this time they did not destroy the package as they usually do.
No rational person would use Fed Barf unless they were making bread and needed to have it kneaded. Or perhaps a steel mill is short of cold rolling capacity.
you mention the massive power supply, and it is not bad, but one of their competitors is offering 175W, which would both charge the MacPro at full rate and power peripherals. I wish OWC would offer that.
Of course, I haven't seen the 175W and maybe it wouldn't even fit in my pickup so I may be ignoring practicality for numbers. Still it would be nice to have the power.
What would be really nice would be the option of either---maybe one could buy a high power supply or choose a lower power supply.
