« Locked Down | Main | What will the new Mac Pro look like? Part 2: Networking »


Nice Article! Maybe you'll get to this with networking in the next installment, but, I was wondering if light peak connections can be assigned an IP address similar to today's firewire. Will be seeing sans with light peak connectivity in 3 years?

Good question! Light Peak at present is a bus just like USB. Therefore, it will not be addressable nor will it be able to link computer to computer, just computer to peripherals. As I mentioned, we might see Light Peak adaptors that allow connectivity to networking systems and perhaps SANs

The mac pro motherboard does not have the room for good video on the motherboard. You need a card to get good video maybe in a laptop like MXM slot.

I think when Apple wants the finest offering of ATI, directly on a non-expandable "Pro" Mac, it will make the room.
