…making it the fastest computer in a race on the office hallway. (I'm actually expecting this joke to come up repeatedly in the next time.)
But seriously, the thing seems to be a beast and I guess it should be mostly what most pros wanted, with its standard PCIe extension slots and extensible memory. The design is (in my opion) somewhat ungainly, but it seems functional.
What I'm a bit sceptical about at the moment is the thermal management, especially if it's really good enough to effectively cool a number of dual GPU graphics cards, a multicore Xeon CPU, and a massive PSU. We'll see. I'm also not sure if the proprietary expansion module formats (MPX) will really catch on and find third-party support, but the possibility to fall back to standard PCIe probably does not make this much of a problem.
But no ARM CPUs. Yay!
