    6-CORE. 8-CORE

    Getting a new Mac Pro trashcan. Big question: Does Media Composer take advantage of 6-Cores or 8-Cores?

    Do more Cores make a difference. Or is more memory the most important thing?

     

    Thanks for an¥ advice.

    Re: 6-CORE. 8-CORE

    I think the speed of the processor is more important than the number of cores - and more RAM always is nice to have.

    Generally, more core has a longer shelf life. More applications, plugins and specific functions are being coded to be multi-threaded in the multimedia industry.

    8 core MP 6,1 seems to be the best balance in terms of pure clock speed versus number of cores.
