It will run games perfectly fine. It has been proven that gaming performance is not marginally different from consumer version.

I do not see high-end hardware a lot, and I don't think it makes much sense to buy the very high-end either. Both from a cost-effectiveness standpoint and time-efficiency. That said, I am sure many corporations do get the very best, when it makes sense, and imo it does not always justify the cost.
I am not a worker in the industry, nor do I make use of such hardware. However, I know people from the industry, and I've been to such companies. I've also visited and seen many servers in my time as that was the field I wanted to work in. Correct me if I'm wrong in my thinking.
What do you mean? Most office workers and standard desktops are relatively a simple build.
However, content makers and certain workers do get higher end machines. Relative to the cost of $30K software and $100-300K employees, a $8K workstation is easily justifiable. They are getting more work out the employee for the cost.
