You beat me to it. This is big, BIG news for the Hackintosh community. Here's an excerpt from Phil Schiller (emphasis mine):Good news, everyone:
Here's hoping that they won't skip Pascal GPUs entirely when the new Mac Pro comes out next year.
This means GPUs, guys. Big, hot, fast, expensive GPUs.We’re not going to get into exactly what stage we’re in, just that we told the team to take the time to do something really great. To do something that can be supported for a long time with customers with updates and upgrades throughout the years. We’ll take the time it takes to do that. The current Mac Pro, as we’ve said a few times, was constrained thermally and it restricted our ability to upgrade it. And for that, we’re sorry to disappoint customers who wanted that, and we’ve asked the team to go and re-architect and design something great for the future that those Mac Pro customers who want more expandability, more upgradability in the future. It’ll meet more of those needs.
This could explain why Nvidia has been silent about Pascal support.
