Just because this is MacRumors Mac Pro Forum.
Same as 7,1
Half the cost
Maybe 8,1 will be an upgrade module for the 7,1.
From the reveal, it looks a lot more like the original Mac Pro to me...
2020 with PCI Express 4.0
Appears the CPU is bolted onto the board in some fashion, but believe Xeon will stay 14nm through 2021 so it could still be an "easy" swap for that "module".
Nope, standard socket in 7,1
AMD Arcturus based GPU - 2020
Intel Sappire Rapids 10nm, DDR5, PCIE 5.0 - 2021
Intel Granite Rapids 7nm - 2022
As long as Apple follows that, Mac Pro would be in good shape.
they have a framework now to update the thing as needed. Like every other functional computer company on the planet. They should of waved the guy who invented the 6,1 macpros head around on a pike during this talk.
Have fun waiting. I’m gonna go slay with this one.
We'll know if this is true, if the MP8,1 is announced in a year.
Next best thing, they didn't let Phil out of his cage for MacWorldSF19.
In MP5.1, it was possible to update the CPU tray. I do not see it is posible in MP 7.1. It means, yo pay crazy price now and you are stuck with PCIE3 and 1 CPU only.
It will come in space grey and be more expensive than you could imagine.
Stay tuned until fall 2026.
xMac for the win...?
I'd say Mac Mini is pretty much what people wanted from xMac (minus the internal expansion, of course).
Pretty much all my hope is lost in Mac Pro or any possibility of decent headless mac.
So right now, all I want is Mac Mini with decent descrete GPU.
Based on trends we can expect 8,1 in 2025 and will have a trashcan form again. It will cost $18,000 and come with a 256gb ssd.
In 2031 Apple will re-learn from the mistakes of the second trashcan offering and offer a modular MP again. 9,1 will come in 2031 and cost $75,000 and still have a 256gb ssd.
The 8,1 should at least come with a dust filter.
Ugh. Lock this thread.
I actually love that.
And dislike Apple even more.
Stop this wishful thinking. There is a higher chance Apple will move to 2 iPhone cycles a year than reduce the cost of the Mac Pro by half.
Mac Pro 8.1 is a good 4-6 years away and will probably be priced a bit higher if Timmy is still in charge.
Mac pro base price: 10k.
8,1: radeon 7950 gpu, 256 gb ssd, 8gb ram.
