Mac pro 6.1. with the questionable design/cooling choices they made and then not upgrading it, is the reason it failed. From 1.1. to 5.1 it was a yearly upgrade. But after Jobs died Apple lost interest in the pro market and became completely oriented towards consumer products.Two years is nothing. Look at how long it took them to update the MacPro5,1 or MacPro6,1.
macs are going the way of iphones and ipads, you'll have to buy a new one every year to have all the features.Not sure if it's already been noted elsewhere but many of the new features in MacOS Monterey will only work on Mac's with Apple Silicon.
New features that are not going to work on Intel Mac's are :-
I'm guessing that these features require the use of either Apples on chip Neural Engine or other unique features of Apple Silicon hence no support on Intel mac's.
- Live Text in photos
- Improved city maps
- High-detail globe view in Apple Maps
- Portrait mode video effect
- On Device translation
- Unlimited/continuous keyboard dictation
This info is confirmed in the fine print at the very bottom of the Monterey Preview page:-
I hate to say it but I think this will be a trend we will see more and more as Apple use the unique features of AS in the new Mac's eventually leaving Intel based Mac's in the dust .....
‘Mac users around the world are deeply upset as macOS Monterey drops support and features for older Intel Macs’.

Maybe because nobody will pay apple asking price for a completely new architecture pro machine right now when their software is still incompatible with it.I know why it failed. That's not what's in question. It just shows a precedent that Apple doesn't update the Mac Pros very frequently. In light of a transition to a completely new platform, why would they ramp up the update timeline?
the t2 chip iss not only for security, also en/de-coder are placed on it. you would need something like a afterburner card to simulate it.Then it is time for VirtualT2.
