Mac Pro Can Now Be Customized With Radeon Pro W5700X Graphics Cards

Starting today, customers who purchase a Mac Pro can choose to add a Radeon Pro W5700X graphics card with 16GB of GDDR6 memory to their machines when using Apple's build-to-order feature, a new option that was just added.

When the ‌Mac Pro‌ was released, Apple said that the W5700X graphics card option would be coming in the near future, but it has taken a few months for it to show up.

Selecting the Radeon Pro W5700X adds an additional $600 to the price of the ‌Mac Pro‌, with Apple also offering an option to add two Radeon Pro W5700X graphics cards for a total of $1,600. It's also available as a standalone purchase for $1,000.

These graphic card options are in addition to the default Radeon Pro 580X and Radeon Pro Vega II and Duo options that were already available.

BOUGHT IT:


* 3.3GHz 12‑core Intel Xeon W processor, Turbo Boost up to 4.4GHz
* 32GB (4x8GB) of DDR4 ECC memory
* Radeon Pro W5700X with 16GB of GDDR6 memory
* 2TB SSD storage
* Stainless steel frame with feet
* Magic Trackpad 2
* Magic Keyboard with Numeric Keypad - US English
* Accessory Kit


ADVICE NEEDED:

I want to upgrade the RAM and I know Apple does not recommend mixing RAM sizes and also recommends using either 6 or 12 slots for best performance - that being said:

What would be the best configuration to upgrade to 96 GB RAM?

12 slots using 8GB R-DIMM, which would allow me to keep the 32 GB provided by Apple but would also take up all the available slots and, should I want to upgrade in the future, would cause me to have to reconfigure all the slots;

or

Trade-in the 32GB that comes with the 7,1 and just purchase a 16x6 kit (thus leaving me 6 open slots for future expansion)?


Finally, is the general consensus here to use OWC RAM or are there other sellers whom this forum trusts?

Thank you.

The tower model now ranges in price from $5,999 to $54,447.98, depending on the configuration options you choose. The power cord is included in all cases.

The only configuration most of us can afford:


Not too sure, those feet are $300 alone.... Don't even want to know how much they'd charge for the rest of the curved (!) metal frame.

Would be cool to have the option to put an nVidia GPU with CUDA inside
