quote: Apple’s Phil Schiller also announced that the all-new Mac Pro will ship this December with a price tag of $2,999. That configuration will get you a 3.7GHz quad-core Xeon processor, 12GB of RAM, dual FirePro D300 GPUs and a 256GB SSD.

quote: The decision I don't understand with the new Mac Pro is the use of a single processor versus dual processors. Intel grossly overprices its 12-core part; a 12-core Xeon is $2500, about double the price of an equivalent 10-core Xeon or quadruple the price of a 6-core Xeon. This means you can get two 6-core Xeons for about half the price of one 12-core Xeon and simultaneously have the ability to use twice the memory.

quote: Now that the new Mac Pro gets TWO pro cards as standard, now it even doesn't get mentioned, and the Mac Pro is a simple desktop machine :D
