This is one of those topics that doesn't need a 1000 word essay. The nMP has listed specs of 450W. The 12 core CPU is listed at 130W. The 7970/W9000/D700/E6212-2000 GPUs are rated between 250-275Watts EACH. So, we have numbers that don't add up. 130W + 250W + 250W = 630 Watts (on low end) Two options. 1. The D700 option includes different PSU with PCBs, or separate unit not seen in photos. This would mean that upgrading later to better GPUs would also require either a different PSU unit, or main logic board replacement. (Switching CPU to new board) Either choice makes later GPU upgrade a PITA. 2. The D700 and 12 Core CPU will throttle themselves crazy staying under 450 Watts. There is NO WAY IN HECK that this won't show up in Benchmarks as crippling. It would basically come across as "You can't use the CPU and the GPUs at the same time, one or the other." Any comparison with past 12 core MP or current other workstations would be an embarrassment without using benchmarks that limited test to one section or other with no load on untested part. It's one or the other. Matter and energy can't be created or destroyed, nMP lives in same Physics world the rest of us do. Any opinions?
