I´m quite shocked by the following post: http://discussions.apple.com/thread.jspa?threadID=2541408&start=90&tstart=0 It just says that the logic-support told "trailerman": "... that Logic is unable to use more than 8 cores, and recoding it to use more than 8 will require a major overhaul (I'm paraphrasing obvioulsy). This is not something which will be fixed with an intermediate update, and would require a major upgrade. In other words, it's unlikely this issue will be addressed before Logic 10.0 and possibly not even then. I also raised the 6 core issues, but the technician had no response. It seems highly likely though, that the same issue is what's causing Logic to underperform on the new 6 core rigs, and therefore a fix is unlikely to be imminent." Isn´t that upsetting? Ok the 12-cores - as he says - can get 107 tracks on the benchmark-test but anyway - it´s quite a scandal... So what shall we do?
