And then there's the new Mac Pro... dual AMD FirePro GPUs with 6GB RAM each? And a PCIe-based SSD boot drive?
That's not nessesarily a good thing. you know how much firepro gpus are?
let me show you
based on specs they give for teraflops, it has to be this model they are using since dual S10000 would be well over 10 teraflops and they said theirs dual config pushes about 7
for the low low price of
2,399.99 per card.
and what performance will you get out of it?
"Compared to Radeon HD 7950, its central unit is slightly higher clocked but overall its gaming performance is lower than Radeon HD 7950 because Radeon HD 7950 benefits from certified gaming drivers which unlock the GCN's architecture potential while FirePro S9000 is made for professional applications. Therefore, expect its performance to be between 1% and 5% worse than Radeon HD 7950"
FirePro is not designed for gaming, that's not what hey are designed for. They are designed purely for professional use and these mac pros are going to be super high priced machines that play games about on par with an imac, maybe even worse when new imacs get haswell and 700 series nvidia cards
