hey guys. I don't post on here much, but just came on to find out what you guys think about the topic of Desktops vs Workstation and how they affect gaming performance. Now i am a programmer, with a slightly limited understanding of hardware on a gate/logic Level and also your typical run of the mill pc hardware etc. What i am interested in understanding is what are the main differences between a desktop and a workstation beyond the obvious points we already know such as ports, processor speed and/or type. Etc. The mac pro is classed as a Workstation, and in typical "Mac vs PC" debates, the point of games being dominant on the PC platform is a weak and unfair argument as the Mac Pro is a workstation and not a Desktop. Now, not to spark more Mac vs PC debates. I am aware that the Mac Pro has some fantastic Graphics cards available for it, with very high specs. So my questions are: 1) What are the architectural differences between a Desktop and Workstation that lend a workstation to Graphics, and Desktop to games? 2) What are the factors that affect gaming performance on a Workstation and Desktop with identical Graphics cards and processor clock speeds? Just trying to wrap my head around this. Seeing as the Mac Pro is insanely fast and powerful, just curious as to what its pitfalls may be if one was to play games on it, as well of course use it for development work etc. I am not looking for purchasing advice or the like, nor do i want to see a hardcore mac vs pc debate. Thanks for your time.
