Re: How can Apple reclaim its dominance over PC-based workstations?

The GPU models in this machine are easily replaceable, as they simply connect to the "bottom plane" of the machine via mezzanine connectors.

If they had made the parts available, the machines could very easily have been upgraded by the local iStore!

Re: How can Apple reclaim its dominance over PC-based workstations?

They announced a new mac pro over a year in advance in April, which is something they've never done before. And they announced the imac pro very early as well. That might be so, but the Mac Pro 2013 has proprietary graphics hardware and GPU's are the part of the machine that definitely ages the qui...

Re: WTB : SGI compliant female 13W3 to male VGA cable (short length OK)

Just one question: Are you sure that you won't need some kind of signal booster for a video cable of that length(100ft)?

As you might loose signal fidelity due to losses incurred due to the length of the cable.

Edit: according to this table, you should be able to get away with it.

Re: How can Apple reclaim its dominance over PC-based workstations?

If you want a proper workstation, look no further than the new HP Z8: https://arstechnica.com/gadgets/2017/09/hp-show-us-what-a-real-pc-workstation-looks-like-with-a-56-core-3tb-z8/ up to 56 cores (112 threads) up to 3TB RAM up to 3 graphics cards ... and pretty much everything else you can dream o...

Re: How can Apple reclaim its dominance over PC-based workstations?

I agree with you, in that it should have been marketed as a compact desktop rather than a workstation! As it's a really cool home desktop! :D

Re: How can Apple reclaim its dominance over PC-based workstations?

The Trash Can was a good Mac, but you constantly find people moaning about the fact that it wasn't innovative, or no more powerful than it's PC equivalent! The argument is: how can you produce a machine that outperformes the competition, when you're using the same hardware as the competition? Apple ...

How can Apple reclaim its dominance over PC-based workstations?

If you're talking innovation, as far as apple is concerned, from a processing power point of view, what type of CPU would you like to see them use in their "Pro" models in order to give them the edge that they once had over PC? While they made use of Power-PC CPU's in their old Power Mac s...

Where do you put that fscking thing? It's bigger than the woman in the pic!!

You put a pillow on it and use it as a stool.



Too big to put on a desk, to beautiful to put underneath :D


I agree completely! :D

Re: Mac Pro 2013

It's definitely your box then!

I'm extremely happy to have it in my collection! :D

Just so that you know, it's extremely well looked after, so it should keep on going as long as I'm alive as I won't sell it.

BTW, it's great to see that you're also into fine time pieces! :D

Re: Mac Pro 2013

Confirm you live in Germany?

If so, then I probably bought it from you back in 2014.

It's a great machine! :D

Edit: I just checked your profile and saw that you indeed bo live in Germany.

Re: Mac Pro 2013

This was the very first Mac that I bought new and in my honest opinion, it's been an absolute pleasure to use! Just so that there's no misunderstanding, I cannot speak for people in the industry, but for home use , it's been fantastic for a number of reasons: 1) It's small form factor. 2) It's dead ...
