NVIDIA Doubles GPU Speed, Halves Price with new GTX 1080: Good for New Macs?

In Nvidia Pushes Chip Speed Higher, Price Lower, the May 7 Wall Street Journal reports NVIDIA has pushed GPU performance to a new level:

  • Titan X “world’s fastest GPU” (8 billion transistors, 3072 CUDA Cores, 7 teraflops SP / 0.2 teraflops DP
  • 12GB memory
  • Twice as fast as current $1000 flagship GPU card!
  • Consuming 1/3 the power
  • Retail price for PCIe card with the new GPU is $599.

The natural question is whether a new Mac Pro might be spec'd to include two of these hyper fast GPUs. Or for that matter, what I’m hoping for: an iMac 8K.

Apple still builds zero (0) Macs capable of driving virtual reality headsets. Must be that new leading from behind thing. Apple graphics performance is way behind the PC world these days, rather a laughingstock for gamers and virtual reality or video users.
