True! But without Nvidia support, you're limited to whatever GPU apple blesses. Which haven't always been the best options.

I wonder if there are movies that would've been better if they hadn't spent too much time in the edit getting too into the weeds?

Great performance, robust error correction, instant snapshots, terrific permissions management, robust support for characters and metadata, basically impervious to file system corruption. Honestly, too many reasons for twitter.

4 years ago or so, I switch all my shared storage (that is the primary storage for all the work we do) to ZFS. I can't stress enough what a great move that was. If you have a NAS device and it's not based on ZFS... you're doing it wrong.

No. Because the shelf life on tech is the same regardless. That is, both will be obsolete in 4 years. If you’re processing out 8K red files all day everyday, then you’ll get like 60% more done. Which might be worth it to you. But otherwise... not so much.

The base model Mac Pro is 4K

On the plus, the thermal design of the 2019 MacPro seems MUCH MUCH more forgiving!

Now with the 2019 MacPro, apple has apparently moved manufacturing back to their top tier manufacturing partner. Sadly, for the North American market they're using the same manufacturing facility that didn't do so hot on the last model.

This makes sense if you consider that they were manufactured at a new facility, in a country not really known for high-end electronics manufacturing. That is there's a reason that the MBPs which have just as narrow a thermal design didn't have these issues. FOXCONN qc is tight.

Well my impression has been that GPU glitches in 2013 MacPro has been due to 1) a design with low thermal tolerance and 2) poor application of thermal grease, and poor assembly practices in manufacturing. Something borne out by repeatedly "fixing" D700s by regreasing/placing.

They're using second tier manufacturing, at least for the north american SKUs... so I'm a bit apprehensive.

You wanna talk about "kinks" with apple, try Gen 1 of a new platform! (2019 Mac Pro)... remember all the kinks in the 2013 MacPro launch?

Which is probably why they haven't updated it in 7 years!

I even think you can do a lot of this stuff on the MBP with a full docking/desk type setup anyway. You can add an egpu for processing if needed. I'm trying to make the case to myself and outside no-expense-spared-performance, you don't really need the MP.

Well that's one less thing! From what I'm told the performance of the new MBP with the upgraded GPU is quite good. If the choice was purely $4K in MBP, vs $4K in MP. I'd go with the MBP. Like this is a legit pretty good machine for the price.

I mean, i'm not saying you need the Apple Monitor... but you need a monitor.
