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.

The only real difference between "workstation" and "gaming" cards is the firmware and a certificate.


You are incorrect. The GPUs in the workstation W9000 and D700 cards support 6GB of ECC RAM and the GPU in the gaming 7970 supports just 3GB of non-ECC RAM.

But, regardless of that, the Mac Pro can be ordered with D700 FirePro workstation cards. Therefore, a price comparison based on PC using a gaming card is invalid.
