nah.. put on the tweak glasses and you'll see he actually loves the thing but has some serious resistance towards it.. he'll come out of the closet soon enoughI'm starting to think MattDSLR doesn't like the Mac Pro. I mean, it's hard to tell, but I'm starting to have my suspicions...
According to press release http://www.apple.com/pr/library/2013/12/18All-New-Mac-Pro-Available-Starting-Tomorrow.html
Also Apple's Mac Pro page shows that, Floating Point performance is twice, and Memory Bandwidth is twice.Mac Pro features 4-core, 6-core, 8-core or 12-core Intel Xeon processors running at Turbo Boost speeds up to 3.9 GHz and two workstation-class AMD FirePro GPUs that deliver up to eight times the graphics performance of the previous generation Mac Pro.
lol.. you're talking as if some other computer company could compare their new model to the prior generation and blow its doors off.. as in- you're saying the truth but not using it in a truthful manner (using it to take a stab at apple instead)..Not sure if Apple promised anything.
What you are missing is Apple being Apple!
When the demo video was released I mentioned Apple should have done the old "A" vs "B". The base nMP vs. 3,1 4,1 and 5,1 in real time with real apps! Show the "doors" being blown off the cMP's. Apple did not do this and now you know why. It would have hurt the "hype" and sales!
Maybe you need to learn to read english and check the Mac Pro website and Apple's claims one more time. At no point did they say the CPU performance will be 2X as the last generation. That couldn't be possibly true since Intel didn't magically get twice the performance from a single core over the span of 3 years.
what BS? that a new generation computer doesn't blow the doors off the one that came before? that's not BS, that's the way it is.. in computing in general.They were just afraid to put the nMP's A$$ on the line! It's not hating Apple or the nMP, it's seeing BS and mentioning it.
