Quote from: echrei on March 05, 2009, 05:39:01 amSo, did you buy one? I'm interested in getting the Mac Pro and using all 16 render threads. I'll probably install Vista 64 to compare render times with. I need something to replace my single cpu G5.

Quote from: old_blaggard on March 06, 2009, 08:38:28 pmKeep in mind that you're actually getting 16 logical cores with your 8-core Mac Pro because of Intel's SMP implementation. I believe that FrankB managed to use that to great effect, basically cutting his render time in half. Again, not particularly useful if you're running TG2 on the Mac side right now, but we'll see what improvements Snow Leopard will bring.
