      @JN VuC I only really want the case and then to build my own pc in it. Im guessing I probably cant even afford the entry level. I wish we could buy the empty case.

      Yeah, 6 grand for this shit is way overpriced. Sure, audio pros may not need a high-end graphics card, but you're paying the price of it anyways. It's like buying a porsche, receiving a yaris, and going oh, I don't need the performance anyways.
      For 6 grand, you could build a PC with 4TB of Nvme storage, 8 TB of sata SSD storage, 10 TB of NAS HDD storage, DUAL 2080 Ti's, a 12-core 3900X, 128gb Ram, and a 10gb ethernet port.
      It's not, like some people here suggest, only overpriced in regards to storage.
      12-core 3900X v.s 8-core Xeon W-3223
      4 TB NVMe + 8 TB SSD + 10 TB HDD (22 TB total of the highest quality drives) v.s 256 GB SSD (unknown)
      2x 2080 Ti's v.s 580X
      128 GB RAM (2666mhz) or 64 GB (3600mhz) v.s 32 GB RAM (2666mhz)
      10gb ethernet port on both
      $5,900 - $6,100 vs $6,000
      The PC I built will completely demolish the Mac Pro in every single application. Or if you want to go pure workstation, you could get an RTX Titan or a Quadro P6000 instead of dual 2080 Ti's. The Titan will run you $500 more, and the P6000 will run you $1,500 more. Either way, it'll be anywhere from 2x-4x better in most applications for roughly the same price.

    Apple does not say about 2019 Mac Pro supports how many 8K displays.
    Apple lists 3 different graphic cards, and the top graphic card supports for up to eight 4K displays,
    four 5K displays, or four 6K Pro Display XDRs 60 Hz on Apple website.

      I hope when people get 2019 Mac Pros for editing & playing 8K videos at 60 Hz to the external high end 8K displays (LG 8K TVs) without lagging frames or audio out of sync.

    So I'm trying to decide what new computer would be best for me. I'm about to start the production of 90 minute long animated movie. I prefer to work with Final Cut Pro but have used the old version for over ten years. Time to upgrade. So I would go for an iMac pro except that I would very much like to have the computer on the floor and just the keyboard mouse and display in front of me. I'm wondering if I can plug this computer into my giant Sony 83" 4k ultraHD tv. Can I use that for my computer's display and will it work alright? Do I need a particular graphics card for that?

    • Delain124

      Then this won't cut it for you. You need a GPU that really is pro which this is not it.

  • presh xd
    presh xd Month ago

    Lol there's nothing exclusive about this, you're giving an in depth overview of a product you don't even have.
    Also the music producer dude is just rambling and talking nonsense(when talking about the price). You could get a really powerful 2080ti, core i9 pc for half the price of the entry level mac Pro, thats how overpriced it is.
    He's a rich music producer so ofc he can afford it, but it doesn't mean its worth it for other people need a machine for productivity as well.
    As for the raid thing, you could easily get a full tower case that can house a bunch of ssds and with 4tb ssds becoming a thing now, you could easily get 32gb of raid storage by installing 8 ssds' inside the case.
    As for using dual gpu setup.
    Idk who told you that you need thirteen fans to cool two gpus. Most gpus have two or three fans, so that's six total fans max to cool the two gpus not thirteen. Also Nvidia used to make dual gpu cards like a decade a go but quit because people weren't really interested in them and stuck to single gpu cards, causing poor sales numbers.
    And for the quad gpu thing, you could easily just get a higher end motherboard or server motherboard, those support up to four gpus or more, so it's not like apple are the only ones who can do it, windows and Linux machines have been able to run quad gpu configs for a while now.
    Nothing special, nothing unique, same old overpriced and overhyped tech.
    Yes the direct power delivery thing to the gpu is pretty innovative, I guess, but that's fixing a problem that doesn't exist, six pin connectors work just fine.

    While i agree completely with you jonathan, i think you are just bit too harsh over the fact that back in the days, we didn't have options like the iMac Pro etc... Of course, we didn't have an iMac Pro, but the Mac Pro from back then wasn't $5999 either. It was more around $3000 which is literally half the price. Now, i will be buying this Mac Pro, but i just wanted to mention that it's a bit too easy to say that we have options now. Rather say that this is just not the machine for you if you think this machine is too pricy, which is what you eventually said i think. Anyway, great video, i personally do more music production but i also do some web developing and graphic design, so i'm happy with this Mac Pro. Currently have the trashcan mac pro.

    I run a Pro Tools HDX studio and could not be more stoked about what I'm seeing. It's great that Apple listened to us and ditched the trash can. My 2012 12 core is still rocking. Still running mavericks and PT 11. When the day comes, I will happily drop the cash for a new 12 core. 1.5 TB of Ram. LOL. That hurts my brain. Most people don't realize that Pro Tools caches session audio into ram, so that means that the Ram is playing back the audio, not the hard drive. The HDX card is handling almost all processing other than native plugs like most reverbs and delays... I usually come close to 75% of my system during my biggest sessions. This new mac pro with HDX will be more power than anyone could ever realistically need. That's completely aside from how awesome it will be to edit video. Really happy that Apple knocked this one out of the park. A lot was riding on their new Mac Pro and it's awesome that they are delivering. Thanks, Apple. You'll get six grand from me in a few years.

      Digital video resolutions (pixels/frame) and colors (RGB/pixel) have increased exponentially:

      4K of 10 bits RGB
      8K of 12 bits RGB
      12K of 16 bits RGB
      16K of 20 bits RGB

    I would recommend audio engineers look into RME. they use an FPGA to handle audio and it can make any potato a valiant engineering tool. that said, youd have to spend some extra cash to get things working. I myself use an hdspe AIO with an external clock source. I can open project that fail to open at some of the studios I work from. Apogee is good on mac, RME is probably the best though, they use some sort of voodoo.
    Ill probably have one of these to play with soon, excited to see how it stacks up to my next build.

    Hey good vid just a clarification of fact regarding Protools. I worked at Chapman Recording and Mastering for about half a year (they put out Caribou Lou by Tech N9ne which is platinum and the whole Everready album). You do not need a pcie slot to run protools hd anymore, so pcie expansion is not huge for audio production. It never has been, but it was for protools for a period of time.

    And I want to clarify that NEVER EVER did we have to use different machines for different types of audio production. VO's, Music, Radio Ads, NEVER was a different machine used. Even the weakest machine could handle multiple vst's, tracks recording simultaneously, and offline bouncing. This engineer in your video must have had a VERY old machine if he is being truthful, or is getting a check for making these statements.

    Also applications like Studio one 3 are starting to compete with Protools mixing workflow. Which was Protools main selling point and still is for now..... Buy this if you can afford apple tax. An Imac pro would give you much more for your money if you want to go apple. But really, just build a windows machine if you want to save thousands and can watch a 20 minute video on how its done. Lastly Protools Expert has done a poll showing what types OS people have beeen using to make music it has been a dramatic flip from Mac to Windows in the past few years.

    That's one informative review! Well done! I'm out of video now so my old 2006 tower is retired. I wanted to upgrade it in 2013 but felt the trash can pro was not worth it. All I remember is wishing that they had made a new tower and not a can. This 2019 Mac Pro looks stunning. Obviously Apple caught some crap from pro users who really need this. So instead of buying the trash can pro, I got a maxed out Imac in 2012. I was concerned with it being able to handle my video workflow but honestly, It all worked fine and still using it to type this. I did have a hard drive go and had to deal with getting the glued on screen off. That part of the imac is one of it's worst features. But other than that, I love it. Again, great review Jonathan!

      Get a better more powerful GPU. Right know more people who are into animation, CGI CAD, 3D, etc are using computers that work with Nvidia and now with Nvidia Quadro rtx.
      So they are either running any old Mac with an Old is that still supports Nvidia hooked up to computers running Windows and or Linux.
      No one will buy this.

    Does APPLE recruit THESE GAP flunkees? I would never have someone buy a PROMISE PEGASUS 4 bay RAID when they really need the ARECA RAID with thunderbolt 3 for the new Mac Pro which has a dedicated processor on board (TRUE HARDWARE RAID) for about the same price. These APPLE DROIDS don't know what they are talking about. They don't do video except for these promo clips TIM COOK probably pays them for. You can get a system from 2011 MAXED out that is more than capable of doing 4K. WHY DIDN'T TIM COOK TRY two sockets on the new MAC PRO to alleviate costs? Steve Jobs sold a 4000 dollar RAID just ten years ago and it didn't SELL. I'm counting INFLATION in. DID YOU KNOW YOU CAN RUN AS MANY RAIDS OFF AS MANY THUNDERBOLT PORTS and then SOFTWARE RAID THOSE TOGETHER FOR MAXIMUM THROUGH PUT on your motherboard? You will get 1000Mbs threw put off just two THUNDERBOLT 1 ports RAIDED together which is more than adequate for 4K.

    It was very important to go back to the old large aluminum tower format.
    It is obviously large, heavy, and can't be moved easily.
    The benefits are enormous though. Excellent airflow throughout to keep it cool with lots of fans.
    Expandable like a PC tower for easily adding and upgrading all the components.

    No question. this is a great most powerful machine, but ... sounds a bit like your narrative is bit bias towards Apple. Let me try to balance the scales.
    - cooling. This is going to be a dust magnet. I any decent environment you will be constantly servicing
    - what is the decent machine not too "pro" you know for decent amount of mulah ? mac mini ???? that the only one without screen :) in your logic there should be MAC ..replacement of mach mini MAcPRO 1.1 - 1.x ....
    - the proprietary port (WOW ...beast ...) what about PCIE 4 ??? is it too weak ?????? apple port is better ...for what ?? apple prove that they wont release upgrades for their video card ......
    remember the promise they made for mac trash ???? where are those upgrades for video ????
    - Windows 10 box ... either inter or ryzen ...can dance circles around that really sleek ...3 times the cost MAC PRO ...
    yes I think you can build professional grade machine 3 times cheaper ..then mac pro .. OSX is becoming weaker and weaker in their offering of sofware too ...
    final cut pro, rewamped ...(mixed fillings) aperture ..bye bye ...but you can run facetime and ios apps soon ??? wow ....

    having said that ...every fall I waited for apple to plow through innovation, excite me ... fill the void of my heart and offer something too look forward to ... but not for starting point of $6k
    but I guess youtube stars people making $10k+ a month ...no big deal ..coast elite, no problem ... new toys coming :)

    Been waiting so long i nearly bought a PC. The thing that stopped me was i did not want to buy a huge box. Huge boxes is what PC’s are all about. So although this new Mac is beefy n cool. Uurrghh its a huge PC. And a huge price. “Oh No” was my first reaction. Now I’m wavering toward my first PC again. Im disappointed that that thing is just too big. Feels like theres pc people at Apple. I will be using my next computer when i decide for ZBrush. I need loads of CPU and RAM but i do not want a huge Clump anywhere near my desk. So Apple seem to be giving me a gentle nudge toward a PC which is the same ridiculous size and less money for more.
    Im disappointed.
    Can we install Mac OS on a PC i wonder now!

Again, this new machine is NOT for audio, its for absurdly high rez Video, anything els is a waste. (btw, the Avid Pro Tools HD pcie cards ARE the engine, the tower doesn't mean shit)
