Now we have the 8800 XT (well I have one on order now) and CUDA support… what about getting really serious and stuffing a couple of Tesla cards in those PCIe slots? I hope we wont have the same EFI hiatus as the graphics cards… what about drivers and all that? I can see the mac pro as a very serious scientific workstation if we can do all of this.
Or is the future of desktop HPC Linux? I must admit I hate having the nicest box in the industry and having to be at the back of the queue for support. Is this a case of the bleeding edge? Good old Apple… pushing the dinosaurs along… must be a bit like herding cats.
BTW what is the status of EFI support on the Nvidia range - or is that another topic?
