Apple today announced the all-new Mac Pro will be available to order starting Thursday, December 19. Redesigned from the inside out, the all-new Mac Pro features the latest Intel Xeon processors, dual workstation-class GPUs, PCIe-based flash storage and ultra-fast ECC memory.

This thing is so damn awesome. I don't need it, but I still want one.

I'd recommend a wait-and-see tactic
IMO the heatsink is not upt to the task of cooling 2 firepro w9000 and a xeon e5 12-core

but the powersupply seems even worse
W9000 275W each
xeon 130W
rest ~50W (ram, ssd, ...)
---------------------------------------
730W
if the powersupply has an efficiency of 90% it should consume ~800W under full load

what does apple say about maximum power-consumption?
450W

this won't end well
