[D] Is the new Mac Pro viable/reasonable choice for deep learning research?
Basic specs are (up to) 28 CPU cores @ 2.5GHz, 1.5TB memory, and dual Radeon Pro Vega IIs.
Full specs here.
I haven’t seen a price listed yet, so I guess considering it based on the appropriateness of the hardware rather than value.
Edit: 3rd party estimates of the price are around $45k for the fully loaded system. Based on price and downsides of AMD vs NVIDIA it seems like a poor choice.
