Good we get another card for macs.
However, for $599 they could at least use the good cooler (evga sig2) evga has and not the ref cooler

This is great and all , till you look at the price -_-  at $599 the gtx 680 mac edition is $120 more then the pc equivalent of the card : http://www.newegg.ca...N82E16814130768
Wouldn't it be cheaper to just buy a pc version of the card and install it , from what i remember its possible to get a pc version of the card running on a mac pro with a few simple hacks .

You could, but you won't get boot screen f.ex.

Mac Pro owners have earlier only had the option to either use a hacked card, or officially either a GTX285 or a Quadro card (which costs like $1500 and upwards).
Now they can get a new compatible card for like a third of the cost of a Quadro.

Here is a "worst case scenario" for AMD/ATi users for pro use:

You will actually use a full work day (436 minutes= 7 hours and 16 minutes) to render something on an AMD card that you could do in minutes on a NVidia card :P

I guess if you live on using After Effects, you can afford the $100 premium for a mac branded version

New Graphic card for a machine that has not been updated in 985 days....

And when the New Mac Pro comes out (if ever) - though think it will, it will feature "integrated graphics"  :rolleyes:

I think apple aims for same release schedule on Mac Pros as Sony and MS does with Playstation and xbox..
One update like every 5-7 years :P

Tim cook already promised that a new mac pro will be coming in the summer of this year  and i doubt apple would pursue a integrated graphics solution on a professional work station  and even if they did the mac pro will still have pci slots that would allow people to install graphic cards .

Lets wait and see :D
