    Any reviews posted yet? Did Apple seed any nMPs to tech sites? A quick search didn't reveal anything yet... But if you find something... Shall we start a collection here?

    No, it will still be the "2013 Mac Pro" :) Shipping date is unimportant. Date of availability to order counts.

    Haha, exactly - although they may as well have just started taking pre-orders months ago :rolleyes:

    It appears as though Apple did not seed any review product. :( So I'm guessing we won't see any reviews until they start shipping late this month or early Jan.

    i will review. my verdict is that it is a good computer and it looks nice

    purchase if you are looking for a very powerful apple desktop computer in the $3000-$10000 range and the iMac and Mac Mini are not suitable.

    Since, I've typed a response to this kind of inquiry a few times, I thought I would post a link to it here for anyone else looking for some thoughts on the best nMP config for photography...

    Best config for a photo editing rig?

    if you are looking for an apple desktop with more power than the mac mini around the $3000 - $10000 mark then this is the computer for you

    Apple releases it's first bug fix

    http://appleinsider.com/articles/13/12/19/apple-squashes-bugs-in-first-update-for-new-mac-pro

    http://support.apple.com/kb/DL1714?viewlocale=en_US&locale=en_US

    Notice the specific Bootcamp mention, so that is definitely supported.

    "Suffice to say, we've already seen it play back 16 simultaneous 4K streams in the new version of Final Cut Pro, with zero waiting time as effects were applied to the original footage."

    What I really want to know is if you buy the Hex Core, if the processor can be upgraded down the line by a user. Same for the Video Cards.

    The Video Cards will need some legit Apple Support, but I am hopeful that the CPU can just be lifted and upgraded if needed
