Apple now offers machines completely closed and disposable or replaceable in case of hardware failure. Only the Mac Pro, which has not changed for years, has a certain modularity. Apple could create a surprise by proposing a new Mac Pro more modular than ever, a kind of LEGO could configure or upgrade ever.
site FCP.co proposes illustrations.
We would really revolutionary design:
- The lower floor for the motherboard and processor would be up in a Xeon server configuration, or low height with Core iX processors.
- Above would be (optional) floor of the PCI-Express,
- Still above could have higher or lower depending on the capacity of the hard floor,
- Finally, the power stage.
This configuration would be very tempting and certainly consensual. However, Apple has faced challenges from sacred to get them to connect these bricks but we bet the arrival of Thunderbolt that allows you to convey the PCI-Express cables without problems help to achieve this. question remains if these products really come out one day and if Apple happens to contain the price.
