Need to decide quickly on which MacPro to buy for editing with FCP, footage from the XDCamEX1R mainly 720p.
As well asmixed content from a number of sources e.g. MPEG2, MPEG MTS, flash, …
What is most important: clock or cores?
Hard drives internal and/or external? SSD for system?
Westemere 3,33 6 core or 8-core Westemere 2,4 ?
16 Gb for sure.
monitoring output : not using Apple screen !?
the latest and greatest with your favorite firewire drive will be fine, man.
Considering prices for New MacPros, it’s not obvious that you should go for the hightest number of core and GHZ… it’s mainly my question: what’s should be considered first : GHz or Cpu/cores ?
Just make sure it’s at least a dual core (has two cores) with a processor speed of 2.0GHz or more 2GB+ RAM. That’s the rules I play by.
The one you mentioned up above should handle it.
