So, the 2010 Mac Pros were announced today and we'll be getting two ATI GPUs, but nothing from NVIDIA. Disappointing, yes - but now I'm starting to think there were reasons for it. These are just speculations, if anything. 1. For all we know, the 2010 MPs have probably been under development and testing at Apple for several months now. The GTX 470/480 GPUs were likely counted out due to high power requirements, noise and heat. 2. NVIDIA's new price/performance king, the GTX 460, was too late to make the cut for mass production, as it was launched only two weeks ago. Too bad. So perhaps someone will come out of the woodwork with a GTX 400 based upgrade solution for the Mac, like EVGA did with the GTX 285. But something tells me that even if that were to happen, we'd get a bleeding-edge product like the GTX 480 (at a substantial price premium) and not a decent mid-range model like the GTX 460. But I will admit that I'm glad that Apple has finally geared up to offer appealing GPU options in the new MPs. The standard fare in the past has been somewhat laughable.
