    Hi - just a quick question. I have a 1tb ssd samsung drive taken out from macbook pro - will it work in latest Mac Pro ? If it does and I replace it myself will that void the warranty on the mac pro ? Also is it possible to add more memory myself to the mac pro without loosing the warranty ? Many thanks!

    the SSD in the Mac Pro (Late 2013) is user replaceable. and so is the memory.
    this means that replacing the SSD will not void your warranty on the Mac Pro.

    Thanks for that - will the SSD from MBP 2014 work with it though ?

    yes, they're both running the same Apple proprietary PCIe SSDs.

    I imagine if one daisy chain two titan-x, nMP could finally become a good cuda machine

    He's working on external TB GPU expansion that can be use with the nMP...

    And to answer your question: Because he wants to.

    Be nice of him to keep his self-promotion to relevant threads instead of spamming ones where it makes no sense.

    Are you a mod?
    If not, how about you take your own advice.

    This is a thread about upgrading a nMP. MVC talks about his upgrade. Seems to be the logical place to me. You're intervention on the other hand...

    My apologies to the OP.

    Came here all happy to have screen output and ready to post, this thread caught my eye.

    I forgot that this was a touchy subject.

    Anyhow, to answer the original question, if the MacBook was newish, it will work. The first SSD blades Apple used were really SATA and won't work in nMP. My 2012 rMBP is such a beast. In the giant thread about these drives I posted a pic of the 3 connector types.

    I did this exact upgrade on mine. Be advised that it won't have the nMP heatsink and I think it is held by a Torx screw, but otherwise easy and allowed by Apple.
