Hi guys. After 4 year of use, I'm starting to feel that my G5 1.8 single CPU is a bit slow in terms of encoding video. It can sometimes take days... really, days and not sometimes just for 5min. of video. Anyways, I've been looking at some charts but I'd like to hear from people who jumped from the first Generation of Powermac G5 to Macpro and see how it changed your editing speed from rendering to encoding to anything else which changed your life. Also, is the 8 core really worth buying? Any update for the macpro soon? Price dropping maybe?
