Good thing there's 3950x + Vega 64 x2... you can run OS X on Ryzen 3000 now. (Wonder if you can run it on an Epyc 7742...)
I'm a fan of very extremely old Macs from the mid 80s-1993 or so (68000 machines)
In 1989 the Macintosh IIfx cost $10469, I believe it was the most expensive Mac to date.
Adjusted for inflation, that comes to $22247 today.
Apparently Apple wants everyone to build Hackintosh with Ryzen if they really need OS X on a professional grade product. I can't imagine how this will increase market share in that segment.
Who wants to bet on how long these boxes will last before the GPUs die or whatever due to capacitors of too small a rating or something dumb like that? Can't wait to read about people with more money than sense buying these things, having them fail in less than two years, and having to pay AppleCare $10000 in "repairs" over and over? Pretty sure thats the goal here
Movie/Sound/Animation Studios will LOVE this Mac Pro and the Pro XDR Displays. It is actually a bargain for them since time literally equals money for them so every second/minute saved in rendering, post-processing, encoding translates to more work getting done and hence more money for their companies.
all they did was max out the ram on it, so that adds $25k. If you put in your own storage and RAM it isn't that bad from a work perspective. If you want to do graphics work on a crappy display, don't get the $5,000 one. I don't see the problem here. Someone needs to make the fancy stuff - there are plenty out there that make cheap garbage
I might just be out of the loop on these products, but this is the first images I'm seeing of this design... does it look like a cheese grater to anyone else?
you're spot on, just look up the meme game from when they originally announced the $1,000 monitor stand.
you know, I'm not sure how to feel about this. This is clearly not advertised at anyone aside from millionaires looking for properly decorate their homes. I don't see any content creators, unless they're already wealthy and successful, having any yearning for this system.
n let's not even get into the cost of a hackintosh variant (10% of the price?) (as the price screams BUT MUH WARRANTY SERVICE!) anyone spending $50k on a computer likely has enough money to simply get two.
R.I.P. Zawarudo, may you OC angels' wings in heaven.
