Hello Everyone, I have a bit of an unusual observation that i found this afternoon. I have been doing some of my typical 3D work in cinema 4d R12 and today i discovered that the extensive 3D animation i was rendering out was rendering faster in the on screen preview on the 6-core than my 12-core.. I was suddenly shocked by how this would ever be possible. My current specs are as follows: Mac pro 2012 12-core 2.4GHz 12 gigs DDR3 1333MHz ram ATI Radeon 5770 Mac pro 2012 6-core 3.33GHz 12 gigs DDR3 1333MHz ram ATI Radeon 5770 I just bought both computers and i am quite concerned why my 12 core (19000 range qeekbench) would be slower than my 6 core (15000 range qeekbench). does it have something to do with the amount of ram i have in the 12 core? does each processors need a certain amount of ram to function at optimum power? where as the 6 core has 12 gigs all to itself and the 12 core has 6 gigs to each processor only..? It was a very subtle difference but still a 12 core should be blowing away the 6 core! I am just concerned something may be wrong with the 12 core?? Thanks in advance for the suggestions!
