While most of the buyers of the Mac Pro line will be looking for a custom configuration, the 6 Core model with dual D500 GPUs will likely be the one that has the best mix of price and performance.

If you are unfamiliar with the new Mac Pro line, there are quite a few combinations of options that can produce a range of prices from $2999 to nearly $10,000.

Currently there are only TWO "Stock" configurations:

$2999 gets you a Quad Core Xeon with dual D300 GPUs, 12 GB of RAM and 256 GB of Solid State Storage

$3999 gets you a Six Core Xeon with dual D500 GPUs , 16 GB of RAM and the same 256 GB of Solid State Storage. This is truly the "Goldilocks" configuration... the middle of the road.

In a custom configuration, which you can only get directly from Apple (which takes time), each of those components can be upgraded, however only some can be "User Upgraded", so you must be aware of that when you buy, because you will not likely change them later.

Here are the things you CAN upgrade AFTER you purchase:

1. RAM - You can upgrade the RAM on all models, from 12 GB all the way to 64. There are 4 card slots, however you can't mix chip sizes. So, if you buy the 12 GB model, it uses 3 cards of 4 GB each leaving 1 slot open, so you can upgrade it to 16 by adding one more card. If you want to increase it beyond that, you will be removing all of the 4GB cards, and replacing them with 8's or 16's.

This means that the 16 GB model comes with 4 x 4 GB cards, so any increase in that configuration will involve getting rid of all 4 of the 4 GB cards and starting with 8's or 16s. I think it's a shame Apple doesn't start with 2 x 8GB cards, so you could keep your existing memory and add two more...

I purchased mine directly through Apple. (Waited for 2 months)
My spec is 3.5GHz 6-Core E5, 32GB ram, 1TB SSD, D700s
I have been using this machine for 1 month now, and this is my personal experience with by configuration.

A little bit about what I do. I am a photographer who shoots in Raw and also a lot of 1080P video content on Canon DSLRs. I'm going to explain how this computer has changed my workflow. Software I use on an everyday basis: Adobe Lightroom5, Photoshop CC, Premiere Pro CC, After Effects CC, InDesign CC, jAlbum.
Prior to the Mac Pro I was using a 27" i7 iMac and a 15" i7 Macbook Pro. All I can say is the difference coming from these machines is like day and night.

The reason I pick this configuration:
6-core: It's a good sweet spot for what I do. An 8-core chip might have been over kill, also its hard to justify the speed gain with the $1500 extra price tag.
32GB: I feel like this is a good start, and 32GB feels enough for me. (So far I have zero page outs) This is also something that might go down in price later on.
1TB SSD: This is one of the fastest things on the mac pro. 1TB would give me enough space to set it as a scratch disk on my video projects while I am working on it. When I'm finish with the project, I can move the files to external and start the next project. Setting Lightroom scratch disk on this SSD will speed up your Lightroom workflow as well.
D700s: This is a no brainer for video editors. At $600 extra, this is the best bang for buck. Premiere Pro and After Effects totally utilize 2 GPUs now, Also FCP X.

Adobe Creative Suite has recently updated the software to optimize the performance of the mac pro. It now uses 2 GPUs on Premiere Pro, After Effects and Media Encoder.

Well thought I would write a review of this beast of a workstation. Note I bought from another another site to save on taxes.

I have a 2008 Mac Pro and felt it was time to upgrade to the latest model. I use the Mac Pro for everything from 3D art to work and some gaming and normal web and email.

For work I use the MS RDP client app to connect to the Microsoft world via Gateway and works perfectly.

Also I have three 55inch TVs that I connect to the Mac Pro and in this case is where the Mac Pro had issues. Connecting the TVs you need to have a Active dongle to make the third TV function. In the older Pro 2008 I added another video Card and had no issues, In this case you will rack your brain trying to find the answer. Oh and do not go to the Apple Geniuses for this as they have no clue nor does apple sell the Active dongle. Third party.

But other then the dongle issue its been flawless. A normal render of my 3D art on the old Mac was about 15min to complete at the highest level. The new Mac Pro less then a min big difference in my world.

Current game is Elder Scrolls online and they support both Windows and Mac OSX and works flawlessly as well.

The old Mac Pro has a lot of fans and you can hear it. Its was not as loud as normal Window workstation but still.. The new Mac Pro can not even tell if it is on. Even under load still can not hear it.

I have heard people trying to build a a system that is equal to the New Mac Pro then Hackintosh it.. I did this a five years ago and it worked but was not worth the time and money spent.

Been using Apple hardware for the last 10 years and everything that I have bought from Apple still works today.. Even that first Mac Mini.
