Apple and NVIDIA are not coming back together anytime soon. So Mac pros need to forget about RTX and CUDA and look forward to a future of Mac Pro apps optimized around Metal 2 and its successors powered by AMD high-end GPUs inside of highly customized and optimized workstation hardware from Apple in new Mac Pros. The good news is: the key developers appear all in.
We continue with Part 2 of our Architosh coverage of SIGGRAPH 2019 in Los Angeles.
This year in Los Angeles SIGGRAPH 2019 had an evolving twist in the format of the conference, with many more companies opting to host their wares in private rooms. Regardless, there was a slew of exciting announcements in software and hardware at the biggest computer graphics conference in the world.
AMD releases significant new rendering technology for the Apple Mac platform—with final release of Radeon ProRender for macOS utilizing support for Apple’s Metal 2 technology and qualified hardware.
At this year’s SIGGRAPH show returned to Los Angeles, the show gained momentum in the midst of the burgeoning VR/AR explosion happening across various 3D industries as well as foundational shifts happening at the developer level as game engines grow more important and low-level graphics APIs bloom further. Lurking in the background of this year’s SIGGRAPH is AMD’s resurgence as well as Apple’s promised return to pro markets at the workstation level.
Here is a preview of SIGGRAPH coverage to come. This small report from Akiko Ashley highlights a few items from her extensive show coverage, forthcoming.
Apple’s Mac design philosophy change hasn’t been lost on the company’s pro users. AMD’s new RYZEN 7 CPUs look to promise more computing muscle per watt than Intel and offer a nicer philosophical fit for Apple. The 1700, in particular, is ideal for a future Mac Pro.
OpenCL provides the platform agnostic architecture for AMD’s Radeon ProRender physically-based GPU rendering engine.
Nvidia looks to be playing a key role in future Macs—new Nvidia Mac OS X centric job posts indicate Apple may be moving away from AMD in favor of what Nvidia is doing with AI with GPU compute.
Where is Apple in the VR revolution? VRLA certainly didn’t provide any clues or evidence of why the largest technology company on earth is a no-show in the world of VR.
AMD released some exciting news at SIGGRAPH last week about new Radeon Pro WX graphics cards, aimed at democratizing high-end graphics workloads with lower prices and higher performance.
