I finally got to play with a 4-core mac pro at work last week. I do video work with Final Cut, as well as a lot of video conversion with Handbrake (large DVD collection). The 4-core cut the conversion time for a 90-minute movie down to about 25 minutes. I have to imagine an 8-core would bring that down even further? How quickly can you guys convert using handbrake? Also, I know that with Snow Leopard we'll see GPUs playing a greater role for systems. If I go for 2 or 3 GT 120s... will each one be able to assist in Parallel Processing, or only one? Finally... I'd just love some general impressions from 8-core users. Thanks so much!
