Hey all, I'm considering buying a 4,1 flashed to 5,1 with dual X5670s and 32GB of ram. I keep going back and forth. I do audio work in Logic Pro X often with up to 32 channels and/or large virtual instrument sessions. My 2015 MacBook Pro 15 often shows fairly high CPU usage. I'm an Electronics and Networking student and I take a lot of courses that require Windows and Linux. I expect that this machine ought to handle VMs well as I can allocate a decent amount of resources to multiple VMs. I also would want to dual boot so I could play some old games in Windows. Nothing intensive, though I would prefer 10 to 7, which apparently isn't natively supported but still works fine. (Edit: Seriously, my games are like Sims 2, Sim City 4 and Battlefield 2) I've been getting more and more into coding and would like to get into iOS App Development. I currently run the aforementioned MacBook as well as a PC with a i5 3470, 8GB ram and a 970. I'm concerned about a hit in single core performance, as passmark scores between the 3470 and the X5670 differ by nearly 600 points. But benchmarks are not everything, and I'm curious if anyone has mad a similar switch. I know it's speculation, but what do you think the odds are Apple will drop support for the 5,1 with next years MacOS release? I'm still debating between this Mac Pro and a Hackintosh. I've done it before with success, but it just takes so much maintenance. But the thought of spending so much money on a 9 year old computer is just a bit tough to swallow. I'm just so done with Windows. Anybody have any input?
