NVIDIA announced today the expansion of its award-winning line of NVIDIA Quadro professional graphics solutions to the Mac platform, bringing the computational and visualization breakthroughs enabled by NVIDIA Fermi architecture to Mac Pro users.

For professional users operating on Mac OS X Snow Leopard, this means the wait is over. The NVIDIA Quadro 4000 graphics processing unit (GPU) for Mac is optimized to accelerate workflows and drive a range of top professional applications. For example, the Adobe Mercury Playback Engine in Adobe Premiere Pro CS5 software leverages NVIDIA CUDA parallel processing technology to enable film and video professionals to work unconstrained. Other examples include visual effects and image processing applications from The Foundry, including NUKE and STORM, and MATLAB from MathWorks.

You can put whatever inside a mac case, the mac average user can't ever imagine that it can be opened.

Apple has NEVER "banned" any hardware for any reason as far as I know.

That's what my PC using friends all thought when (in 1999) I showed them my new B&W G3 and their mouths dropped at how awesome it was to open. I'm pretty sure they are Mac users now.

The fanboy-ism is strong in the above statement.

This one you mean?
:toast: :roll:

I've worked on those macs before, and i wasn't overly impressed with how they open, just different that's all. I don't know what your PC friends were using back then to find that awesome, but nonetheless, it isn't that awesome.

Now this here, is what I like to call a smart move.



Who cares about the inerts of a mac. Yeah we love the case, but that is all there is to it. Screw the internals. Gut it out, n put those insanely powerful PC components in it ;) :rockout:

And paint it with a retina-burning-ly disgusting combo of red and black.


Seriously, it's almost as bad as neon green.
