As some might remember, I made a statement that the new FCP, would look, then for 1.5 to 2 years they came out with updates, looking like the olè FCP until 2+ years then there it was what a friend told me he saw. Regarding FPU (Floating Point), regardless of cores, the higher the CPU=HIGHER the FPU= MORE PLUG INS, MORE REALTIME FX FOR FCP, which it does, and yes, 64 bit, using all the cores is great but at 2.8 vs 12 (or better yet a 22 core/44 virtual), running at 4.5GHZ is going to almost double the effects, unless you have PT cards and/or Apogee, Apollo (plus-ins are awesome-still waiting for them to combine all the power from any UAD Chip containing a CPU/FPU, so it is seen as one, then have the ability to combine them all and control the units with the knob, thinking also about the SSL Nucleus too. Anyway, I called Apple, told them I worked for Apple (as in Past), and told her I was also an BSEE and worked in Wafer Fab Technologies, (while I am into Film/TV/Music/Photography/Editing), I took it as the guitarist from the group (pre me), (lead guitarist Tom Shultz got his Doctorate in BSEE at M.I.T., then came out with the rock man, all pre-pod, or guitar for protools (can't recall the name, way before V.I. where big or good enough) and for me I saw that streaming was the future, that ADATS (still young but remember them), didn't stand a chance, proven even more when AVID bought M-Audio hoping collect on the semi to consumer knowing it would not be enough I knew and said at gear slutz, they would release the GUI for PT for any device. "YEAH RIGHT", but anyway, the woman asked me (as I called for iTunes or something whacky), right b4 I hung up, "OH BY THE WAY, HOW ARE O-U-R (APPLE), 32+ more=64 with Virtual and...AND, there is more, some have been asking a long time. We shall see.? core chips coming along!" I hung up in case someone was listening, I was like, fine fine, ok, thank you! Click. The Mac Pro should be revised now, put it back in the GREY and SILVER container, then you can increase power, its the best design ever. Then offer an update so all you have to do is replace the chip or a mini board with CPU and anything else new to the new chip coming soon, but not soon enough for an update. WE NEED SOMETHING NOW!!! but that wasn't big enough, I knew it was only a matter of time (everyone told me I was nuts, just like when I said Apple will use Intel when one to one paid, $35 an hour, they had split profit sharing and/or combined commissions, that were distributed equal. If a woman was there, she worked in Feature Film, T.V., Architecture, Graphic Design, similar, or picking up something for hubby or b/f. Then came the iPhone, thank goodness, I stayed was the only Logic hire, and the others were all post iPhone, so they taught email, setting up websites, (WHAT ARE YOU KIDDING), then, (some have left, and can't blame them, 22, 24 cores and windows 10 is the only OS now, no more 20 OS'es =trouble shooting increased try-fold, whereas now, its one, some hardware and they might be doing well. Anyone see the new PC commercial, it shows the MAC saying it stole something, then the PC says you mean like you stole the (insert company/Xerox)?, funny.
