    Can anyone answer these please regarding MacPro fall 2019:

    Maybe I want to stick with my beautiful NEC monitors.
    Will those connectors remain the same? (DVI-D)

    Will there be a way to connect my eSATA drives?

    Can anyone suggest a most appropriate configuration
    from this page, eg processor, memory:

    https://www.apple.com/mac-pro/specs/

    for Photoshop files, some times up to 1.5 GB;
    video editing: generally 60 4K 2 minute clips at a time input;
    2 minute finished videos 4K output.

    Thanks
    Steve Z

    You’ll need thunderbolt adapters.

    [steve Zavo] “Will there be a way to connect my eSATA drives?”

    You’ll need an adapter, most likely USB-C will be the option.

    [steve Zavo] “Can anyone suggest a most appropriate configuration

    You can afford more than the base model? I can’t even afford that. The base would be fine for many many things, even Resolve and PPro. Get what you can afford.

    [steve Zavo] “video editing: generally 60 4K 2 minute clips at a time input;”

    You’ll need drives with connectors far faster than eSATA. Thunderbolt 3 RAIDs for 4K 60p. Fast drives is what helps with large data rate video filse.

    [steve Zavo] “for Photoshop files, some times up to 1.5 GB;”

    64GB RAM

    [steve Zavo] “2 minute finished videos 4K output.”

    This can be done quickly with an iMac 5K, nothing special about that. 2 min? Lickity split…base MacPro will do that.

    I would just go with the 1.5TB RAM. Excess is what’s needed here. LOL!
    I just wonder what they charge for 1.5TB of RAM loaded into it…
