Is this the announcement of a new Mac Pro by Apple for 2018 or a simple coincidence? Still, Nvidia has just announced the release of its new GPU: the Titan Xp. This new video card is available now: it has 12GB of GDDR5, 3840 core CUDA (clocked at 1.6GHz).
Apart from these few technical details, the new one that should give the most pleasure to video game enthusiasts and graphic powers, is the announcement by Nvidia of the next availability of the drivers of the cards Pascal for macOS . It will now be possible to insert a GTX 1080, 1060, 1070 or Titan Xp in a Mac Pro or to benefit from a GPU (much) more powerful on a Macbook Pro 2016 via an external GPU box .
The drivers will be available in April. The announcement by Nvidia of the compatibility of Pascal GPUs on Mac is therefore good news. Maybe a Nvidia GPU will be integrated into the future 2018 Mac Pro … Nothing is less sure as AMD with its VEGA seems to have been Apple’s choice. However, know now that we can now choose to put the latest Nvidia Pascal cards in a Mac, we wonder why the drivers did not arrive sooner!
