    What does it answer? The Mac Pro support site isn't up and one of the documents points to the G5.

    Gives specifics on the architecture of the machine and specifics not available under the applestore links ... just have to follow the links.

    can't find the actual wattage of the PCI Express slots anywhere else
    Somethings vastly important to adding other graphics cards.

    A little more digging there helped me. I knew the developer notes would give us more info then the store. Any word on the power supply wattage?

    Not that I doubted your link was worthwhile. :D

    It seems to cover system architecture... which for a non-shipping piece of hardware is a very good starting point.


    Thanks for posting this Sun Baked!

    I dug the PCI Express slot info out in the previous post ... adding to the graphics card usage info

    Code:
    Nvidia GeForce 7300 GT, single-link		256 MB (GDDR2)	32 W
    
    ATI Radeon X1900 XT, double-wide 		512 MB (GDDR3)	132 W
    
    Nvidia Quadro FX 4500, double-wide 		512 MB (GDDR3)	110 W

    Well, I was going to post that too in my previous post. Any word on third party PC video cards? Not that the 7300GT is enough for me for at least a year or two. I'm more interested in raw CPU power.

    I think we have one of these on campus so I can get my Mac Pro this week instead of waiting for it. :D

    Umm arent the Quad Core Xeon's coming spring 2007, personally I will be waiting for those and a Leapoard computer to ship all in one.
