They'll probably do it once thunderbolt 3 rolls out across all Macs. It's really the only thing the current model doesn't have. Seriously a new Mac pro that allows you to add additional graphics via TB3 and RAID drive config can work perfectly fine in a professional setting. If a decent bitcoin rig can run 7 GPUs no problem imagine external D700 units adding up to however many the chain allows. HDX needs to move over to dedicated thunderbolt boxes. Offering a core box with DSP power and optional accel boxes with more DSP and less IO. Also have boxes with more IO capabilities and no DSP. And also a native core box with no DSP. Either way no pcei required. Older Mac pros work fine for those set ups.
