Personally I think this is a game changer.For smlaelr facilities this could be a Avid Unity/ISIS killer, and allow facilities to invest in iMac hardware and still get all the same benefits of having a fully spec'ed out MacPro.Because it's cross platform as well you could build a killer Z800 unit with multiple GPUs and serve several iMac clients.This is seriously exciting tech hopefully we can get our hands on an early beta and play!
