    I would love to see the arbitrary or custom frame size option that rears its head every now and then. It would be super useful for VFX work, game development, digital signage and other tasks not...

    Can't re-iterate this enough and it's something I inevitably have to explain to others or deal with on a regular basis. This is also one of those factors where the over clocked i7 is going to...

    I wouldn't say it's better than the HP Z8x0 workstation, it's different. There are pros and cons to each type of workstation. A Z820 or Z840 (current model) is going to have the potential to be...

    1200W PSU for sure. It might be overkill, but then you also won't be stressing the power supply, even with the system under heavy load for longer renders. And as Eric points out, they do lose...

    Agree. And as we often see with Apple products when they first arrive, they usually have the vision right or have a great concept, only the execution isn't matured. It just takes a few generations...

    Rolling shutter becomes irrelevant if you have something like the motion mount or other secondary global type shutter or mechanical shutter in the optical path. The Alexa sensor actually has a...

    For me, the new 5K screens are awesome. I would have already bought one, like the Dell, if the interface wasn't such an issue -- sops up two TB2 headers on a Mac Pro cylinder or requires a GPU with...

    I wouldn't recommend buying a GPU with less than 4GB RAM for any use now... Serious games, Adobe Premiere, Resolve, etc.. can all benefit from 4GB+ If you're working with 4K+ imagery, it's a must!
