Six professionals review the Mac Pro

2 mar. 2020

Apple's Mac Pro is not a single product. There are no stock configurations aside from the it-has-to-start-somewhere $5,999 base setup. Customers can configure almost every Mac Pro to order, all the way up to a top spec with a 28-core Intel Xeon W processor and two AMD Radeon Pro Vega II Duo GPUs that hovers near $54,000. Reviewing the new Mac Pro has been an interesting challenge.

  • The issue with After Effects described in 4:34 is because "adaptive resolution previewing" is enabled, to turn it off click on the little rectangle with the lightening bolt at the bottom of the comp panel and turn it off.

  • Now don't be lazy dummies and give it to real pros: people working on proteins, simulations, astrophysics, data science, brain simulation, machine learning, real AI, economic modeling, complex systems, cryptography, data signal analysis, etc. Doing just video and photos on macs it's a meme. It's shows how many people just fall for the idea of doing drawings on vids as the most complex thing on the world.

  • Well, i'm happy with my Mac Pro. I got the 16-core processor as well. 96GB of ram and the new W5700X GPU. I also got 8TB SSD internal storage. I had a Mac Pro 6-core 2013 and i can tell you, my new Mac Pro screams! I of course, use Apple Apps, so that might be a reason. I use logic pro X and final cut pro x. But i also use some adobe apps like photoshop, illustrator, lightroom and dreamweaver. For me, everything is working great! I seriously wonder how The Verge's Mac Pro would be today with the software updates we got.

  • And we more normal users, we who aren’t pro:s, what can we do if we still need Mac? I have Mac Pro 5.1 from 2012 right now, and am in need of a new computer, if not immediately but in a year or two. I don’t have 5 999 $ over. I have no business. I guess that Apple will lose on this prices, both on pro-side and enthusiast-side.

  • Right now, Adobe doesn't have any incentive to go faster or improve. Because no matter what, you will always pay for it and use it. You could try some other alternatives but that is either not optimized as well or you're the one using it. *sigh

  • This shows me that as a graphic designer, the mac pro 2019 would be pointless. I use a 2017 monster spec iMac at the office and my super modded 2008 mac pro for my home design machine. I still don't know what the advantage of the mac Pro could be other than churning through huge render queues personally. Maybe as the years go on, and prices go down people will scoop them up for optimised pro software
