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 left out a big feature of workstation cards, and that is 10-bits-per-channel color.

Now that the MacPro is available to order, they've got a Sharp 4K screen for sale. The screen supports 10-bits-per-channel, but they aren't advertising it as a feature on the Apple site, because MacOS X doesn't support 10-bits-per-channel. This is a limitation of the OS. Mac compatible NVidia Quadro cards can support 10-bit color channels under Windows but not OSX.

I'm surprised Apple hasn't added this along with their Retina displays. Sharpness is nice, but added color fidelity is just as good.
