an 8-core mac pro, Small and compact no fans...
Wouldn't it be nice?
You seem to have alot of wishes (iPrinter, Cube, etc)... and no it wouldn't be nice.
i very highly doubt there is any way of having a small, 8 core machine with no fans.
A small machine with no fans; yep
A small 8 core machine; it wouldn't last long
An oct-core fan-less machine; it'd be damn big.
it would be nice, but so would an Aston Martin DB9 which doesn't ever run out of fuel.
Let's hope not. I wouldn't want the cube to catch on fire, would you?
and it would also act as a heater in the winter. GOD i love apples inovation!
and looks like you have been watching those vids on youtube...
2025 for the release of an equivalent.
Released second Tuesday in April.
Put 4 Mini's on each other and you have your 8 core cube!
That would be a tower not a cube
You could probably cook cupcakes in the drive bays.
And keep your coffee warm on the CD trays.
The ultimate camping accesory!
Think different: a super computer and a stove at the same time!
YAY for the cube, or someting
The original cube was also a tower with the plexiglass
I disagree, I can see this coming next tuesday
4-core possible with Agena and fan.
"And while i have been showing you demos of the new cube, I have also been keeping my coffee warm!" "woo"
While I would like to see a Mac Pro Cube released, I seriously doubt that it would have 8 cores, not for now anyway.
I don't understand why people want pro cubes. Do people want to transport them somewhere? I assume most people have their Mac Pros driving large monitors, so the size issue seems somewhat odd to me. I can understand slightly smaller (perhaps slimmer), but the size never bothers me.
Wow! You've got me excited now.
I think it just has to do with the wow factor really. I mean the g4 cubes with the old plastic cinema displays looked pretty damned slick!
i would love to see a new cube.....and we know that Steve likes the cubes....but i doubt it will happen, and if it did, it'd have fans (even though Steve doesn't like fans either)
Apple could probably build a fanless cube with mini internals. The low energy use drives cut down on heat, the integrated GPU makes little heat, the external PSU helps a ton. They might have to switch to a slower, ultra low voltage CPU core, though. But in a larger case like the cube there would be room for larger heatsinks and some more airflow, so it'd likely work.
It'd be a cool machine, though. Likely expensive, and more of a novelty than an improvement on anything they are selling now...
I Love the idea of a cube, but i don't see it coming out any time soon. I do think Apple still needs a Mid-range tower/cube. I just hope that if they ever decide to make a revision of the G4 Cube, that they do it using the same kind of hardware [full-sized HD, upgradeable Video card, etc.]
it's a novel idea,, but even if they did release the cube again, it'd run into the same problems as it's predecessor- spending so much for a machine that doesn't come with a monitor. tho it would be fun to try to build one... and watch it catch fire.
How much room is there in the current MacPros?
Lots, those things are huge!
