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.
Apple has a new warhorse to go battle in the 3D market with, but SIGGRAPH discontent for the machine was squarely aimed at the lack of NVIDIA GPUs. Despite this, new job posts at Apple clearly indicate renewed commitment and interest in the media & entertainment software market for which the new Mac Pro should make an ideal entrant.
Apple’s new modular Mac Pro with accompanying Pro display has arrived and they are both far more in line with what real pros are seeking. They are both for the upper range professional customers—you won’t be buying a new Mac Pro just to play games!
The much anticipated and even more desired modular Mac Pro may be shown in a sneak peek mode at an event that is likely about the next iPad Pro and new Apple Pencil—all aimed at the creative Apple user.
The present age offers increasing threats to data and individual privacy. If Apple moves away from Intel on its Macs, future Macs can offer a much more secure enclave for users.
NVIDIA’s GPU Technology Conference (GTC) has rapidly become a must-attend event for those on the leading edge of technology. Beyond graphics, GPUs are powering and transforming Artificial Intelligence, Deep Learning, VR/AR/MR (realities) across a broad array of fields.
Apple’s leaked ARM Architecture for Mac plans seem exciting but chip transitions tend to hurt deeper more complex applications that are made of multiple software toolsets produced by developers supporting developers.
Apple’s iMac Pro isn’t even shipping and workstation rival BOXX has begun to tear it apart, calling it “last year’s technology.”
There were great reasons long ago for Jobs’ four-quadrant product matrix, but Apple’s users today demand a continuous and overlapping spectrum of compute options that span device thinking categories from “appliance” to “configurable tool.”
Apple has a chance to crush it in the Architecture market, but only if they provide the right features in both the new iMac aimed at pros and the next Mac Pro super machine.
April 4 is now an important date in Apple’s Mac history. This is why and Mac Pros will love this news.
It’s got a handle, is sized for standard parts, it’s very expandable and best of all it features flexible CPU/GPU support and all the goodness that older pro Mac desktops posssed. We wish we could order such a Mac.
New data in Worldwide CAD Trends 2016 Survey, by Business Advantage, may suggest future directions for multi-device and multi-platform makers like Apple. Future trend data looks negative for Apple’s Mac Pro but rosy for Apple’s iPad Pro.
Apple may not be ignoring the Mac product line because it is too distracted with future products like the Apple Car. This large time gap may mean that Apple has big plans for dramatic Mac updates that adjust the Mac product line to better suit the needs of today’s customers.
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.
