While I think it looks great. The short NVME and only 2 slots for the entire storage capacity? The selections and specs seem odd but I do understand this design started quite some time ago so intel was sharing with Apple what they "would" be making in the future. It seems so end of generation though. The Xeon's it supports are right at the end of cycle before DDR5 and drops in NM. The Vega II's while still quite fast are right at the end of GCN. It's like this is the last big hurrah for a lot of parts that won't live long and won't replace well. Intel drops socket support like people change Jelly Bean flavors so this socket will die instantly (as for future cpu support.) So an interesting design and build quality. With interesting airflow design that should at least function. With a ton of end of generation parts for the highest pricepoints you can build them for and a max of 4TB. Boy I am just not seeing this as being very Epyc... kinda odd really.
Now the monitor and its stand is very slick. I prefer and am currently using 21:9 but the 6K and the high contrast and color levels are very nice and will make Dell work harder on their 8K monitor to compete. So that is a good thing? I just don't see these being as widely accepted as the Cheesgrater to my left. My 2009 with twin 3.46Ghz 6 cores and 96GB of DDR3 with Vega Frontier and multiple SSD's and 5TB drives just doesn't feel quite retired as of yet. So I'll just have to hack that no upgrading the OS bs and keep rolling the Cheese.
That is just the base machine, Promise is making an expansion unit for the Mac Pro for spinners and NVMe. Then there is the thunderbolt expansion.
