Apple We already talked about iOS 7 yesterday (after a night of sleep, it's only looking worse and worse - look at this, for Fiona's sake!), so now it's time to talk about the downright stunning and belly flutters-inducing new Mac Pro. As former owner and huge, huge, huge fan of the PowerMac G4 Cube - I haven't been this excited about an Apple product since, well, I would say the iMac G4. This is the Apple I used to love.

My future production rig: -tb- = thunderbolt connection


Mac Pro -tb- Audio Interface -tb- Drive array -tb- HD/4k display

that's a 1 -tb- cable daisy chain for the primary 4 items.


you do realise that the 4k display at 60hz eats up 16gbps of the theoretical 20gbps?
even a single measly 2560x1440 screen consumes close to 7gbps at 60hz.
good luck doing anything else over that line

perhaps i could use 1 of my other 5 remaining tb ports for the monitor?

does the bandwidth you speak of get shared between all 6 ports? i don't know myself.
