i love the part where apple people brought up the fact that the imac pro can run firewatch at 60 fps :captainpop:

i get your point but i have a pretty decent PC and its nowhere close to running firewatch at 60fps because it's very poorly optimised

It's going to sound like a Dyson hand dryer but there's no reason it can't handle 100% load with the amount of heatsink they crammed in there. The lack of expansion sucks for "power users" but they're trying to keep people out of the guts of thing and rely on customer-friendly external expansion and yall are whiny nerds about it

Apple will be officially supporting external GPUs ďsoonĒ AFAIK. you can get thunderbolt PCIe enclosures that are officially sanctioned by Apple, and theyíve put the ability to handle to handle GPUs being added/removed at runtime in metal IIRC.

but thunderbolt only brings out 4 pcie lanes or whatever so they donít have the bus throughput of an internal pcie x16 GPU.

BangersInMyKnickers

Modern GPUs only have started saturating 8x lanes worth of PCIe 2.0, 16 is a waste and why when you go SLI it splits your 16x port in to 2-8x's. Assuming there is more than one thunderbolt 2 controller with its own internal lanes and they've come up with a way to bundle two links to feed the external CPU it should be fine

This is the kind of poo poo that lead auto manufacturers to not give you real gauges that actually tell you anything but instead have a temp gauge that is always slightly below the middle and a battery gauge that is always slightly above middle.
