you do understand this was a pricepoint comparison? this is what $4500 dollars gets you from PC and MAC camps. Apple crap is just to much overpriced.
Ahem.... In my same post...
I am humored that the comments in that article are complaining that the specs aren't fair when it is a comparison of price and not comparison of "OSs with the same hardware".
My point was, you have heard over and over that a 980Ti, let alone something like a 980 or a 970 or even a 960, might actually be hugely overkill for little gain for things like PS and LR. (although no one has really tested it yet) If he was to throw a 950 or a 960, that would of saved easily over 400 bucks.
I mean, at that point he could of just replaced things like a i7-6700k, 16GB RAM, GTX 950 into a Corsair 950D with a custom water loop and fill it with a ton of LED lights till you hit that $4500 dollar margin and then factor that in for probably not much of a performance difference from the original config. (totally a guesstimating but I might not be too far off)
I do completely agree with ya though, Pye could of easily crushed that Mac with a much lower price, although that 5K monitor is the only thing people are holding onto as the major difference, as if Apple will be the ONLY one with a 5K even a few years down the line
he does. yes.
