So it's not letting you select gpu rendering? Keep in mind it would only be able to render either with CPU or GPU as fast as it can read/write to the storage location(s) so you may already be hitting the max speed. What's the speed on your m.2? I take it you're in the 1.5gb-3.5gb range. Yes, I do the same thing, I have 2 SSD's for now, I keep non task-critical stuff on cheep, deep storage drives but always running out of space, hard to keep up.
I found some more info on the Mac Pro, so the 28 core that will probably add 7500 to the base price so yeah it will be 12k plus starting for the top model and that's before any added memory, storage, GPU options. Maxed out it would be around 50k. But it can hold 1.5tb of memory, 4 gpu with 128gb. It's a beast, for those that can afford it. I want a fast PC but I can't start out at 6k for a base machine. Not sure when I'll upgrade but it's probably going to be a PC build.
I'll probably stick with Mac though for laptop use, I like the Mac Mini too, makes a nice media machine and the prices on those are still competitive. They are charging 5K for a 6K resolution screen, the stand is not included which will cost 999.00 or you will have to spend 200 on a vesa adaptor to use your own stand. The price point for the monitor is just absurd and I can already tell it's too small for that many pixels. I wish my 4K monitor was 30 or 32". A 6K display would need to be 36-40". I use my monitor without scaling on so the text is pretty small. But with scaling off that sort of defeats the purpose of that many pixels.
This line intentionally left blank.
