I don’t think there is a high-end video card available for the next mac pro. Okay, they are available but will Apple offer them? I think there are 4 high-end consumer video cards on the market today; GeForce 8800 GTS 640mb, GeForce 8800 GTX, GeForce 8800 Ultra, and Radeon HD2900 XT. I think the 8800 GTX and 8800 Ultra can be elminated just on size alone...10.5 inches long. All the above cards are basically already old technology. They all run hot, too hot, and they all consume a lot of power. Does Apple really want those cards in their computer? I do but does Apple? There are two new sets of video cards by Nvidia and ATI; GeForce 8800 GT (G92) and Radeon HD2950 XT and Pro (RV670) The Radeon HD2950 XT has fairly impressive numbers if the rumors are true. But it isn’t considered a high-end card. It will probably make it’s debut at the end of the month. Nvidia will launch it’s 8800 GT (G92) card this month. It’s specs are not as good as the 8800 GTS. The 8800 GT is a mid-range card. The smaller die of the HD2950 and 8800 GT should make for cooler, less noisy, and lower power consumption than the 8800 series and HD2900 XT cards. The next generation of high-end video cards are not coming out until next year. I would like an 8800 series card or the HD2900 XT available as a bto option of the next Mac Pro but I don’t think it will happen. Hope I’m wrong. If the specifications of the HD2950 XT are true, it will be a pretty good card. But it will be a disappointment for those expecting an 8800 or HD2900 XT. I made the following table. The numbers of the HD2950 and 8800 GT are pure speculation. If any of the stats are wrong I am sure someone will let me know. I filled in the HD2950 and 8800 GT cards in yellow to show that they are the new cards that have not come out as yet.
