Just a question. I work with 40 to 50 weddings per year plus about 100 fam shoots. From the weddings we process about 200 to 300 gig of raw files per wedding and about 40 to 50 gig per fam shoot. My concern is the limited upgradability/expandability of nMP I have currently a 5.1 2010 MP with 24 TB of internal storage and 16 TB on Drobo drive as a back up. I was looking at getting this 3.0GHz 8-core with 25MB of L3 cache 64GB (4 x 16GB) of 1866MHz DDR3 ECC 1TB PCIe-based flash storage and dual D500 cards but thats almost $8500.00 after taxes and its not getting me any storage. Should I just look at base 6 core unit? or should I just wait. my 5.1 still works just having issues with video card. and need to replace it. I use USB 3.0 in my MP and drobo D is a bit faster than the internal drive units and always looking for speed. Some of my photoshop actions take up to 5 minutes per photo looking at the speeds from 4 core nMP i would not get any speed gains but maybe 6 or 8 core would work faster. Thank you for input.
