    We plan to take on Apple’s new Mac Pro with our own Hack Pro. We’re going to build better, stronger, and faster. Dual AMD Radeon VII GPUs, Gigabyte’s C621 Aorus Xtreme, and the Intel Xeon W-3175x will power this behemoth of a pc, all while tucked in Apple G5 case. Can we do it?

    10lbs of crap in a 5lb bag, then installs three pack of LTT underwear. Linus, you have no shame. Also how does the saying go in metric or did you forget to speak Canuk?

    New iMacs coming out with 1.5TB of RAM? If you wonder why new RAM costs a little more in the future, that's probably one of the reasons.

    1.5TB of RAM down to 300GB is a pretty huge difference if you’re planning to “beat Apple at their own game”. In fact.. it makes this whole project pointless. Still enjoyable to watch none the less.

    This video just immediately demonstrates why Apple is good at design. - And no, I'm not an Apple fanboy or anything. I just have nothing against them as a Windows PC "for life" user and I can acknowledge that they just make thought out devices. - They might be pretentious, but they just do deliver solid products, even if they leave some things to be desired at times. - You're not gonna look at basically any Mac during any generation and go like "This is not going to work.". Unless you're speaking of videogame support or something like that. But they're just powerful and neat computers. - And the mobile devices, which I do use, are very neat as well.

    Of course the water blocks are from EK... Linus seemingly doesn't know about any other water cooling company even though they have better performing and better looking blocks (*cough* Watercool's Heatkiller line *cough*)

    Would have been cooler to use a Highpoint Solutions SSD7103 M.2 PCIe 3.0x16 Bootable RAID adapter, it'll take any off the shelf m.2 nvme SSD, and accepts 110mm long m.2 drives so you could use 4x Intel 905p 380GB drives in RAID 0
