I am about to replace my trusty old Mac Pro with a newer one - and I’m just keen to confirm I’m making the right choice between the two.
The options are:
- Mac Pro (Nehalem) 2.8GHz quad core
- Mac Pro (Westmere) 2.4GHz 8-core
Both are run out models and a lot less than they were when new. The quad is a couple of hundred dollars cheaper, but I am planning to keep this machine for 4 or 5 years so I want to make the wisest long-term choice.
I assume the 8-core is absolutely the way to go, but is there any reason why the 2.8 quad would be better, purely from a Cubase point of view?
