Nvidia press release

Release October, for $2,249 :O

I guess it’s good for the super pro’s. I’ve never been a fan of the Quadro cards, to me it has always seemed so much of the Quadro advantage was just firmware/driver, and the desktop cards came pretty close if flashed with Quadro firmwares.

However, with this card we will probably get EFI firmware that we can use to flash desktop GK104 cards, like GTX 670, to work in Mac Pro with bootscreen 🙂 (it works out of the box without bootscreen though)

Also, this probably means we will get a Mac Pro with PCI ports next year (there was some doubts about that) which is great, and means I will keep working on the new Graphics Guide for Mac Pro.
