    any ideas? seems like the early test were putting it on par with the higher end imacs.

    PS i don't care if there has been a previous thread, deal with it,
    thank you have a nice day

    This is the Geekbench's best guess... The 4-core is great, but that 6-core is a monster! :D

    thx - might have seen that one. Does it take into account the memory bandwith, bus speed, pci flash, graphics or just the CPU? this 8 core benchmark looks really good

    Geekbench focuses on CPU and memory speed. However, it is very much a sprint and does not represent a realistic workflow, nor the effects of throttling turbo boost over longer periods.

    Any idea if Aperture can make use of 6 cores?

    I was testing it out the other day to see if I could answer this question, and I was regularly hitting 600% CPU usage on my hyper threaded QUAD (8 logical cores) flipping through the browser (lots of RAW images)... so, yes, it does appear to be able to utilize 6 cores. And who knows what might be in store if they ever give Aperture an overhaul.

    Capture one seemed to use 4 out of my 8 cores last time i looked at it

    Great so now we can just make duplicate upon duplicate thread and just finish it off with "PS i don't care if there has been a previous thread, deal with it,"

    That seems legit.... :rolleyes:

    How about you just search? Seeing as how Macrumors had a front page article about this just a few weeks ago....

    ok, can you link a specific article to a quad core benchmark?

    Alrighty, here's the 12 core benchmark on Macrumors:
    http://www.macrumors.com/2013/12/15/new-12-core-mac-pro-once-again-shows-up-in-benchmarks/

    Here's the 8:

    Here's the 6:
    http://www.macrumors.com/2013/11/05/6-core-version-of-apples-new-mac-pro-appears-in-benchmarks/

    Since the numbers are pretty much linear based on core count..... I think you can get a pretty good idea. Or you could have just gone to Geekbench directly and looked it up....

    Here's another platform for comparison: 2009 MP, running a 990x 6c @ 3.46.

    Geekbench 3.0 64-Bit score: 15828

    Good numbers for a $475 upgrade, placing the '09 somewhere between a 4c and 6c, even though I've lost a couple hundred points in the latest OS update.

    A geekbench test means nothing in comparison to an iMac in real life with hard encoding work though. The TDP of the nMP is far higher and the iMac will be throttling back cos it can't take the heat and has to get out of the rendering kitchen!

    Yeah been wondering about that too, my 06 is around 9,000 with the upgrades. Not sure if i should break the bank and go with the nMP 8core.

    Ohh this makes me feel even better now getting a display model 5,1 3.2 and updating the CPU to the W3690 3.46ghz 6core. My 64bit benchmark would be around 16000+, not too bad for the cost vs. a 6core nMP.
