    Are you using those Titans for Deep Learning? If so what specifically are you doing and what kind of performance do you see with that many? I've been using a GTX 980ti, which has been pretty good. I can only imagine the performance increase with all those Titans would be crazy.

    I am not trying to defence AidenShaw. But really, why 2? We are discussing a future Mac Pro that's not exist yet, why limit the PSU power to only 2 TitanX? Is this what we happy with?

    [TBH, I only think a bit bigger than you, quad TitanX, why 4? I don't know :p]

    Yes, ML. The people signing the checks for these toys would not want me to say what we're doing.

    We have several systems with dual 980ti cards, and a couple with triple TitanX. Some of our stuff just doesn't fit in 6 GiB of GPU RAM, so we get Titan X. (We'd definitely use 980ti if 6 GiB was enough - they're definitely more cost effective if your stuff fits.)

    TB3 may need 2 cpus just to get the needed PCI-E lanes or they can drop down to 1 GPU + 2 CPU's in the same case size and have at least 2 storage ports on the in side and 6 TB3 channels.

    The CPU board is larger than the GPU board. This would implies a complete redesign of the nMP.

    There's plenty of bandwidth there with 1 CPU. Nevertheless, connecting a USB device to that port runs in USB mode. Nothing shows up in the Thunderbolt device tree.

    If the iPad Pro is using the same NAND as the iPhone 6S the write speeds are 3-4 times slower than the read speeds.

    Edit : sorry replied about the wrong topic. In the iPad forum I was benching iPad Pro file transfers with USB 2, 3, 3.1 Type A and C
