MC2 Post 1728 The NEW! MacBook Pro: --- When MONEY Is NO OBJECT ---

The NEW  $2,999 MacBook Pro, 
Not including  *Monitors  (*4K Displays) 
at Roughly $4,000 Each.

This Baby WILL Support  3  such Monitors.


The retail Mac Pro will go on sale in December, priced from a not-inconsiderable $2,999. 

That base configuration will include a 3.7GHz quad Xeon 
with 12GB DRAM, dual FirePro D300 graphics cards each 
with 2GB, and a 256GB SSD for storage.


However, Apple will offer up to 12-core processors, up to 64GB of 1866MHz DDR3 ECC memory, and even more potent graphics, though exact pricing for the maximum specification machines has not been confirmed. 

Regular buyers will get a black, gloss-finished anodized casing, just 25.1cm tall and using an innovative 
new cooling system that uses a central heatsink core and 
a single fan to keep all of the components running smoothly.


SOME   of   The Problems  of   Working 

with 4K Monitors

Asus 4K monitor is just $4K, but 
don’t get too excited: Your computer isn’t 
powerful enough to use it

Before you all run out and buy one, though, ask yourself one question: Do you have a graphics card that’s actually capable of outputting 4K?


4K gaming, on the other hand, is another situation entirely. Short of the most powerful ($1,000+) graphics cards, there is nothing on the market that even comes close to running modern games at 4K. At 3840×2160, GPUs have to drive four times the number of pixels as 1920×1080. A few months ago we tested the GTX Titan, GTX 680, and Radeon 7970 on a triple-monitor 5760×1080 setup; Titan was the only GPU that came close to pulling it off… and 4K is 25% more pixels than 5760×1080!
