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.

When I state something, it is fact, not a point to debate.


no, what you are doing is regurgitating marketing-bullshit


The HD 7970 is not the same as a W9000/D700 .

chipset-wise they are the same (or probably will be the same)

D700 & W9000: 6GB of ECC RAM
HD 7970: 3GB of non-ECC RAM


ecc gddr5? sure you don't mix that up with ecc ddr3?

D700 & W9000: 975mhz core speed
HD 7970: 3GB of 925mhz core speed

the d700 only does 3,5 TFLOPS not 4.
it will most likely be clocked at ~850MHz

but you can take a look at a nice 7970 consumer-card:

Apple and AMD call the D700 a "FirePro" because it is a workstation GPU with the associated hardware, firmware, and drivers.

nice speculation your facts
