I've had my 8-core Mac Pro since the day it was released in January '08. It's been a beast, and still is. I'm just curious since it's literally over three years old now, how does it stack up against comparatively priced Mac Pros? It seems like they raised the price, the newest Westmere 8-core machines going for $3499 base, whereas I got my original 8-core for $2799. I'm definitely betting the 12-core to be an absolute beast(is that 24 threads?) over my machine, but it's also five grand. I'm still pretty damn happy with my '08 Mac Pro and feel like it's held its own much, much longer than any computer I've ever bought and still feels like it outperforms much of what's out there today. I bench 10k in Geekbench, 11.5k in Geekbench 64-bit, and realistically I do a lot of video and effects work with 1080p Prores 422 footage, coming off of a Canon 5D Mark II. Do the new models offer a big noticeable boost in speed over what I have? I'm primarily concerned with FCP X. Should I just keep upgrading this model? I've been passively planning for the past three years to throw a much better GPU in as well as more recently an SSD boot drive to replace my perpetually failing Raptor X drive. Thanks, sorry for the wall of text.
