Is there a good reason to upgrade a 2009 8-core mac pro? What application use that much RAM?
There is if you're getting lots of page ins/outs. Otherwise it's fairly pointless.
...unless you create RAM disks for scratch.
Uncompressed 2K video! And even then the ram is the least of your problem, Hard drive read and write speed and Processing power would probably be a problem.
Server type or scientific apps (large database), multiple apps that have high RAM requirement.
Multiple virtual machines.
yeah i would LOVE to see a screenshot of activity monitor or iStat while someone is shredding through their Mac Pro
i have a hard time using 4GB of RAM!
