    I know this is a bit late but could you get Anthony to do a tutorial on a "Ryzentosh" with the new 3950X when it comes out?

          I was hoping you would put it in the fake Mac Pro case. That would've been awesome.

                  Not sure what’s going on but every time I watch your videos my picture on my tv messes up. It only happens on your videos no one else’s, just wanted to let you know.

                            The reason your Final Cut test lost, unfortunately has nothing to do with the boost clock. It's actually because your Xeon doesn't have Quicksync, and H264 encoding in Final Cut is HEAVILY dependent on it. (check your thread / GPU usage on the real iMac Pro during H264 exports). I've seen countless forum posts about this (your performance in Final Cut is very similar to that of a AMD 3900x, which of course, doesn't have Quicksync- and there doesn't seem to be a 'solid' way to force the CPU to take the workload from what I've read so far).

                            I'm about to attempt an 9980XE (or 10980XE) on a X299 motherboard. Won't go Xeon as I want the FCPX performance. Great video otherwise!

                                  Yes but the iMac Pro only Wind'on one test because of Apple and their 3p (piss poor programming).

                                                        Apple know what theyre doing. Thinking about it in pure performance numbers is missing the point.

                                                          why not bench mark test the computer with Android? I think the operating system makes a bigger difference than you think. and also you keep showing off Anthony's skills and a Billionaire might send a private jet for him
