    According to last info in gearslutz thread 2.26 octo working fairly, but much slower than 2.8 octo.

    Until Logic will get update, it is reasonable to test new octos without hyperthreading. Owners of new octos, please try this and do benchmark.

    Also it is very interesting to see results of any new quads (with HT on). Owners of quads, please test them.

    Well that's a little disappointing for Pro Audio users, both the two main programs I use don't appear to be (at present) able to utilise the features of the new Mac Pros.

    I'm guessing Logic will get an update (8.1 paid is my guess) to counter this soonish, god knows how long till Digidesign fix Pro Tools, those buggers do take their time, and I'd guess that they'll only update version 8, leaving owners of 7.4 in the lurch.

    Any audio Pros who bought the new Mac Pros I truly feel sorry for, but new tech always leads to some problems.

    Now where are all last years 2.8 octos hiding at in the UK?????? :p

    Haha indeed - there's gotta be a huge influx in the refurb store/ebay sooner or later, I'll certainly be keeping my eye out. Sure two cores will do me just fine till the tho ;)

    Month passed from Nehalem Mac Pro release. So nobody have purchased one for Logic?
