Bare Feats has had its own Mac Pro 2019 in its inventory for about two weeks now and has been publishing test results on Twitter and its website ever since. From the data available so far, some interesting facts can be extracted, which we would like to summarize for you at this point.
The Dual Vega GPU Boards in the new Mac Pro are treated by the system like two single graphics cards. So there is no virtual GPU merge that makes two or more GPUs addressable to the system like one Super GPU. The latter would actually be expected, since the two GPUs on one card communicate with each other via Infinity Fabric Link and can thus exchange or share data very quickly. Infinity Fabric Link could become particularly interesting for video effects in the future, but there are no signs yet that there are applications that can use this today. Currently, the performance of a Dual Vega GPU board is about the same as two normal Radeon VII boards in two PCIe slots. But with much more memory.
In the tested Adobe Apps the maximum performance gain compared to a comparable Mac Pro from 2010 is only 66 percent at best. In individual cases, the new Mac Pro 2019 is even just 31 percent faster.
The CPU performance of the individual Xeon cores doubles at best compared to a 2010 MAC Pro (Xeon X5680 ). The base frequencies are comparable with about 3.30 GHz, but modern Xeons can "boot" much higher and have much faster memory available. For well supported applications, a Mac Pro 2019 can be about twice as fast as a Mac Pro 2010 with the same clock speed and CPU core count.
