    I just found that my nMP is smaller than PS4! but it is heavier.
    It is probably the best Mac I ever used.
    after I discovered it supports crossfireX on bootcamp, I hardly turn on my PS4. dual d300 can run WOW on 4k ultra very well.

    Didn't know that they had WoW on the PS4 these days! ;)

    Probably hardly ever go outside anymore either. Careful with that WoW.

    It's an unhealthy habit I don't encourage in others. Get smart. Give it up by not taking it up. /Dragnet

    Thank you for the reply, Sorry, I just mean the crossfireX is very powerful that it makes it possible to run many good games on 4k display at 60fps/ultra settings like Diablo 3/WOW or starcraft 2.
    My PS4 cant even handle 1080p games at steady 30fps like battlefield hardline.

    PS: it seems that crossfireX crashes often on Windows 10 but works well on Windows 8.1

    Thank you very much for the advice, I only play WOW when there is nothing to do and just walk around to see the landscape (finally I have a good graphics card! oh, I got two. I no longer need to use the lowest settings )
    It is too hard for me, too many skills, to many calculations and I'm always lost as the world is to huge but the map isnt useful. especially no one talks to me and cant join any clan as Im noob in WOW

    The Mac Pro is about 25% larger by volume, however....

    (PS4 is about 4.45 litres, MP6,1 is 5.55 litres.)

    Are you able to observe the temperatures of the GPUs?

    Hi Koyoot, yes, I monitor the GPU temperature with GPU-Z or you can use aida64 but it is a little bit expensive.
    GPUZ shows the temperature of both GPUs and their vram usage etc.

    Is there an iPhone suspended in mid-air over on the left?

    I heard that it "broiled the ATI graphics cards".

    Dry heat you know, not steam.

    It would have been a great cigarette ashtray on nMP.

    I put my cup of tea on top of my nMP when using FCPX or playing games

    You could use the top of the PS4 to balance a few biscuits or cookies on, to go with the tea. :D

    That looks like the box for an iPhone 5.

    PS4 shakes when reading disc/fan spinning.
    Ps4 has a "7970m" and I have two 7970m crossfired in my nMP plus Xeon CPU.

    Dont be, the point of the cover design was for you to think the device is floating in midair. Its a combination of perspective and slightly extruded cardboard used for the picture that is on the box. They spent a lot of time designing that.

    There's no denying the nMP is a great feat of engineering...but Apple dropped it faster than a hot potato.
