I know there are dozens of threads about this, but really....has Apple given up on the MP and shut down U.S. manufacturing for the MP? I think it's ridiculous that the MP is almost 4 years old and hasn't seen 1 single update. That's 48 months of no updates. Within those 48 months, the Xeon line has seen about 3 generations of updates. GPUs about 2. RAM 2. ThunderBolt is 3. USB is 1. It's insane to me that Apple would spend this much money on R&D for a new design and then just completely dump it. Don't get me wrong, I love Apple, especially OS X. I am really thinking of (shock!) doing a Hackintosh but since I use Macs professionally I don't want to deal with being an IT and no warranty and technical issues during work. I sold my beautiful 2010 cMP (2x3.46Ghz 12 core, Mac EFI 780GTX, 32GB RAM) a while ago because single threaded software like Photoshop were getting a little slow to my liking on the Westmere CPU....compared to my i7 Haswell MacBook Pro. Also tired of "customizing" a cMP. (If anyone has a successful Hackintosh pls pm me I'd love to know, I know this isn't the right place to ask but I'm looking for an "out"). Apple keeps putting in AMD GPUs, which ARE computationally superior to nVidia in OpenCL, but they fall flat in everything else outside of that. AMD is so behind and has a different mindset compared to nVidia (which goes for raw power) AMD goes for computational and low energy. But no one can deny the nVidia 1080/1070 performance at such low wattages. Anywho, my rambling doesn't help. Very disappointed in Apple and so are thousands of other professionals which rely on these machines on a daily basis.
