new mac pro

what type of performance can we expect using the current version of indigo with the new mac pro's dual gpus? for indigo alone, would it be worth buying the (amd) d700s over the d300s?

then down the road a bit, is it unreasonable to expect the program to be able to utilize more of the gpu's potential power beyond the current gpgpu implementation?

thanks for any insight.

Hi Jeff,
Currently I think the D300s should be fine.
But in the future (somewhat near future if you want to use Indigo betas), theD700s could provide a major boost in rendering power.

great. thanks Ono.

(fwiw, i plan on the 6core/d500 configuration.. i was just curious which is why i posed the question in the d300 vs d700 manor)

Sweet man! Seems like a lovely machine.

Also I think you did a clever choice choosing the best graphics, considering that the graphics cards seem to be the only parts that won't be upgradeable. ... down/20778 ... pgradeable
