Over the last six years, many professionals have upgraded by building (or on a large scale, buying custom built) Hackintoshes. I'm going to guess many of these will not be impressed with the new Mac Pro's pricing and will just stay with their just as powerful, far more affordable and easily upgraded Hacks.

The fact that the display doesn't come with any stand, kinda boggles my mind.
I expect at least 20K$ to get a top of the line mac pro and the display.
I'm sure some will be eager to pay that, but damn, that is pricy. It starts to make the iMac pro price seems sane.

Far out. So they've got a Mac Mini from ~1k and the Mac Pro from ~6k. They really need something around the 2-3k mark that isn't tethered to a screen.

Isn't the base model based on 8c Xeon/RX 580/256GB SSD?
you can build TR 2990WX hakintosh at that price with Radeon VII.

That's the thing. You're paying for hardware to work with MacOS and Final Cut Pro. The TR2990 doesn't work that well even in Hackintoshes especially with Final Cut Pro. There are cheaper options but if you're really looking for video editing on Final Cut Pro, you've got to pay to play. The afterburner ASIC module too looks epic for final cut pro editing. There's nothing like it on the market allowing for 3 8K streams or 12 4K streams of editing. That's what you're paying for on the Mac Pro...

Adobe premiere can't even do a 4K stream at full resolution on most high end PCs, the programs are just different enough that there's real merit in going to MacOS and final cut pro with the specific built hardware. You've just got to pay to play.

SEVEN GRAND for the Apple display with a stand and textured glass. For a 32" 60 Hz IPS lol.

Just for comparison, for the same price you could get a 77" [email protected] OLED C9 that will have way better picture quality and speed.

Up^ if those Vega cards don't have HDMI 2.1 (which they almost certainly don't) you have no benefit at all with the 9 series, it will run @ 60Hz anyway.

Core i9 9900K @ 5.2 || EVGA Z390 DARK || 2x8GB G.Skill TridentZ RGB 4600 C18 @ 4266 C17 || GPU: EVGA Kingpin RTX2080Ti @ 2130MHz || Samsung 970PRO 1TB + 860EVO 2TB || Lian Li O11 Dynamic White || Corsair AX1600i || Screen: LG B8 OLED 55 and LG 34GK950F
Corsair H150i PRO + Noctua NF-A12x25
