Default Looks like at least 2019 before new Mac Pro

According to this article it will be at least 2019 before the new Modular Mac Pro (whatever that actually means ) will be launched hopefully that means Apple Is really trying to get it right this time. Which seems to be the indication in this article. Which for me personally is OK as I expect another 3 to 5 years out of current machine

Read about this too. Glad they are dumping the trash can. Sheesh what an epic fail that was.


I see you're running the last Mac Pro tower, is it a 5,1?

What video card are you also running?

I like the trashcan. It has forced me to find new ways of mixing completely in the native land. Have Apogee Symphony MkII for normal use and Avid HDN TB for 64trk recording, seems to be plenty.

Thanks for the replies gentlemen
After 300 views and no replies I was wondering ? interesting that over on The Acoustic Guitar Forum the samep post got 10 replies right away.

JFreak ....While no doubt the trashcan does and would continue to serve many users needs just fine as is , especially with TB PCIe options. But Apple themselves is said( in the linked article), to have stated they had "Painted themselves into a corner" (whatever that means) and I think Apple realized that the were loosing potential sales to PC and Hackintosh's ....... Plus one glaring problem was unlike the cheesegrater tower, was not having the ability to grow, expand, and change the internal components after the initial purchase, in order to accomodate expanding needs after the fact (such as growing the scope of usage for business or personal )


In any case it will be interesting to see what they come up with . With the new
"Modular Mac Pro"


SDDP yes the 6 core Westmere is a 5.1, and the Apple factory installed video card. The only thing I changed was the boot drive to PCIe SSD

And so far even though Avid states mid 2012 6 core Westmere my Mid 2010 works fine but I have not upgraded to "Ultimate" yet
