I just see Apple loosing a huge chunk of the market by only offering the system with FirePro GPUs.
...I would get the MacPro soon after it hits the market, but the FirePro GPUs are the breaker for me. :-(
These concerns are different/more specific than what you made in your last post...and thus if compatibility is a big issue...then I can certainly see your concerns.
If firewire GPU's are so "incompatible"...why would Apple use them in the new Mac Pro...unless firewire GPU's are the future of graphics. And if it's not the future of graphics...it would sure seem to be an awfully big gamble on Apple's part.
Hopefully Apple knows a heck of a lot more than we do!
