    Is that what you guys really want?

    They didn't kill it.

    They know it's a bit of a joke, so they lowered prices.

    Let's go with "Glass Half Full" and say that this signifies that they wanted to keep it warm while they work out the how's and why's of TB on a PCIE GPU.

    It isn't dead people, would be much worse if it was.

    I personally assumed with 100 billion in the bank they could chew gum and walk at the same time.

    They didn't lower the prices, they are using processors that replaced the ones they were using 14 months ago.


    March 2010:
    W3520 - $294
    W3565 - $583
    W3680 - $999

    E5620 - $387
    X5650 - $996
    X5670 - $1,440

    February 2011 onwards:
    W3565 - $294

    E5645 - $551
    X5670 - $996
    X5675 - $1,440

    July 2011:
    W3680 - $583

    So actually a Mac Pro with Intel's $600 defunct Xeon is now $2,999 instead of $2,899. Price increase really.
