Apple Mac Pro and T2/Linux

Mac Pro

The Intel Xeon processor based update from Apple Inc. of the former high-end PowerPG G5 line. The machines feature up to two quad core 64-bit Intel Xeon CPUs, thus 8 cores in one machine, at 3 GHz and 16 GB of fully buffered, ECC RAM.

Notes and quirks

As the machines are either equipped with recent NVidia or ATi graphic cards, no open source 3D acceleration is possible, yet.
