This really doen't look like it's for a VR headset lol. What VR headset is shaped like a big pair of sunglasses where a cable has to run across your nose? The shape and connectors don't make much sense, and obviously the "leaker" is trying to manipulate you by putting 2 cables together, 1 flipped upside down, to put a sunglasses-like shape in your mind. A legit leak would have shown lenses or micro OLED screens or something. This is just funny.

If Apple doesn't design a new ARM chip series for the Mac Pro that exceeds the limitations of the SoC M-series, there's really no reason at all to even make a new Mac Pro. The dumb rumors about an M2 Ultra Mac Pro make no sense. I think that is more likely to be misinterpreted info related to an upcoming M2 Mac Studio refresh.There might be a new Mac Pro coming too, but it has to do a lot better than M2 Ultra... and it probably isn't coming as soon as people believe.The whole M1 series was an impressive exercise in scaling, and if they can improve on the M1 Ultra’s efficiency bottlenecks then the M2 Ultra will be even more impressive. It isn’t going to satisfy the discrete GPU adherents though, so either Apple backtracks and uses an AMD GPU (which kind of undermines their strategy), or they use multiple M2s (some sort of grid compute software solution), or they just stick with the M2 Ultra (for now, until they can improve their scaling story further) and put it in a slotted chassis, or they put off the Mac Pro until M3 (which leaves a hole in their product line). My guess is they’ll use an M2 Ultra, perhaps clock it a bit higher, and focus on expandability… but at least have a product. M3 is spooling up this year though, so perhaps a bit more delay and launch the next architecture with the Mac Pro?
