This thread is not a speculation thread about when it will come out or complaining about why it's not out or rumors, real or not, about new mac pros. This is about what you'd like to see or need out of New Mac Pros. If you have something to whine about do it on another thread. If you'd like discuss what some of the things that you either need or would like ot see included in new macs please chime in. I would like to have more expandibility out of New Mac Pros. More space for hard drives and more memory slots more expansion slots etc. I will leave the company name out as I don't want to give anyone free advertising or am I interested in buying a PC. I was recently asked to finish several commercials at a competing post production company as there Sr. Artist is having health issues and has been in the hospital for almost a week and some of there other artists are relativley young. Very talented but somewhat unexperienced. Thess spots where already started in there suite and they didn't wan't me or anyone else working on them outside of there offices. I was OK with that and decided to help as the offer was good. The workstation I was on had the following specs: 288 GB of ram. Internal 48 TB raid array over 2000 MB/S read write. (24 internal 2TB drives) Another couple of bootable SSD pci cards for the OS and scratch disks. Dual 5680 xeons. Dual Quadro FX5800 4GB ram graphics cards Decklink HD card. Fibre Channel card to attach there san so the various editors artists could share files I've never seen maya and after effects render like this. Editing Red footage and rendering massive maya scenes and 1080p Ae comps like butter. Maya became fun to use and so interactive. The responsiveness of AE was incredible. Evrything just happened. The maya scenes where rendering out in seconds instead of minutes. Alot of this I think has to do with the massive overall through put of the system not just faster processors. I don't think this level of performance can be achieved by just slapping in a new motherboard and shiny new xeons. I would really benefit from having this type of throughput and expandiblty on the Mac Pros. 32 or 64 GB of ram is nice but 288 is blistering fast. I don't think I could ever go back to windows and love OSX now even though it took a bit to grow on me. I would like to see apple come out with something that has lots 16 lane expansion slots, hard drive space, ram slots, more options for proffesional graphics cards etc. The amount of productivty that is gained would easily justify price tag on a system like this. What would you like to see in New Mac Pros?
