Not trying to start another Apple speculation thread. Just curious. I know there are some genius tech people on here and I would like your advise. We are all wondering if the Mac Pro is coming but...with the new Ivy Bridge in the new Macbook Pro...is it needed.
If the new Macbook Pro is released and will use the Mercury Engine to its full potential and I use a PCIe expansion for my REDrocket should I have the need for a Mac Pro. Mine is currently a 1.1 and have maxed out its potential. I plan on getting the new Macbook Pro and now am thinking I may not need another tower of power.
Whats your take? Is a MacBook Pro + Premiere CS6 + REDrocket PCIe expansion enough to do the edit job?
I can let my tower do the final render but is this rig good enough to edit on?
Also...I know tests have been made on PCIe expansion boxes. Can someone give me a cut and dry answer on the best one to get? Thanks for all your help in advance.
