    If apple could drop the price of the highend Mac Pro by 16k then we would have a winner*.

    Heck with AMD's market cap of 56B Apple should just spend a little petty cash and buy AMD.

    *Of course there is a problem with my math but I'll leave the error for effect:)

    I’d love to come back to OSX but even with the new machine the performance penalty is just too much.

    Maybe next iteration will be the one.

    Well, my 2019 Mac Pro finally arrived. I got the 16core with 32GB of Ram and the 580X. I proceeded to add another 32GB (16x2) and a single Radeon VII to the system. The 580X is running the GUI. Second VII will be here Thursday.

    I went back and looked at Puget benchmarks and looked at what the numbers I were seeing and what Puget was seeing with the 3rd Gen Threadripper. "Color" me very very surprised.

    I don't have many formal numbers to post, YET, I will by the end the week. But I'll say this, with just a single Radeon VII, this Mac Pro is beating the 24core 3rd Gen Threadripper and keeping pace with the 32core. Call BS if you want, I will post numbers end of the week. This is with performance mode off. I am not sure what Puget Systems was doing.

    Their set up is a 24 Core 3960x and 24GB Titan RTX for the RED files. For the other tests they had a 11GB 2080Ti . First Number is Puget / Second Number is Mac Pro. I took the lower of the FPS if it was between two on the Mac Pro.

    Test : 4K Prores444
    3x Temporal NR - Better 2 Frames= 8 / 9
    OpenFX - Lens Flare + Tilt-Shift Blur + Sharpen= 20 / 25

    Test : 4K H264 150mbps
    3x Temporal NR - Better 2 Frames= 8 / 9
    OpenFX - Lens Flare + Tilt-Shift Blur + Sharpen= 20 / 26

    Test : 4K RED
    Temporal NR - Better 2 Frames= 15 / 17
    3x Temporal NR - Better 2 Frames= 7 / 8
    OpenFX - Lens Flare + Tilt-Shift Blur + Sharpen= 19 / 22
    Basic Grade = 47 / 58 (sometimes it would keep realtime, but not consistent)

    Numbers pulled from here

    Ordered a 16-Core and Vega II for day job.
    Ultimately would like to pick up a decent display card for dual Dell 4Ks.
    Then bump up the Vega II as GPU.
    Any tips?
