Comment With What? (Score 1) 94

AR with what? Phones? Maybe. Their desktops? Please. The GPUs in their desktops are garbage. Even the ones in the Mac Pros. I was a Mac user for ten years (sold my 2012 Mac Pro last month) and I I have always been disappointed by their choice of graphics chips.

Comment Dear Apple (Score 2) 130

Dear Apple,

How about making products your customers actually want? Like a MacBook Pro that's actually a pro-level computer. Or, a "Cheesegrater" Mac Pro with Thunderbolt and USB 3/3.1?

See, here's the deal: no one wanted the trash-can Mac Pro. We wanted the existing model with the I/O capabilities you put in your home-user machines. But, it's too late. You've lost us. We're tired of paying premium prices for last-years already outdated technology.

And you guys are really missing the bus with your lack of VR-compatible hardware. Sure, VR might be a flash in the pan, but isn't the fact that you make NOTHING with the CPU/GPU power to support it worrying?

Yours,
RatBastard, a former Mac customer.

I do rendering on my 2012 12-Core Mac Pro. It would cost me almost three times what I paid for that to get a new 12-Core Mac Pro to replace it. Which, thanks to my software moving to CUDA, would make a new Mac Pro useless to me. Add to this the fact that no modern Mac supports CUDA due to Apple going with AMD GPUs, and that pool of software is growing ever smaller. I'm almost to the point of abandoning Macs altogether and getting a Windows multi-GPU workstation instead. For a hell of a lot less than a new Mac Pro.

Unless every vendor out there suddenly decides to support the trainwreck that is OpenCL, I've long ago purchased my last Mac.
