Today I had a brilliant idea !! ; )
At first, I waited many years that a new MacPro will born…. you know the rest !
After, I thought buy a "RED Z820 special edition"…. but….. I really want to work with Smoke… which is only on OSX…
but, if Apple continue to be iApple, maybe all of us (and Autodesk !!) will have to go back to Windows !
For resume, the real question for me is what can I buy NOW, not too much expensive
- like a "RED MacMini special edition" ! - until the darkness will lift, and someone in 2013
answer this f**king question for the ten next years, and take the rest of my savings....
4x150 core, 786Gb of RAM, 400Tb SSD, and a Quadro 12000 at 50Gb…
with a brand new Microsoft OSX Cold Mountain Lion.... or Linux……. or Android !!
So, for now, maybe a MacMini 2012 (unborn), or an iMac 2012 (unborn and… berk !!)… or… yes.... HAAAACKINTOSH !!
Just 1500$ maximum, to be able to edit, few effects, and light color grading.....
I was interested in a 6-core i7-3930K (socket 2011), not really expensive, and look nice.
But I just discover that MSI made a new motherboard (socket 1155) with thunderbolt !!
(ok, the hackintosh can't use the thunderbolt ability for now, but I'm sure it's just a matter of days... please !!)
and of course only able to use new Ivy Bridge processor, like the i7-3770K (socket 1155).
And of coooourse, not a 6-core !
So, dilemma once again, chose thunderbolt or 6-core….
And…. SHWIIING…. I had my so brilliant idea !!
If I buy a Red Rocket, I can keep that on my next computer, whatever the OS will be,
and for now, the choice of a 4-core vs. 6-core become less important,
with CS6, Smoke or Resolve…. because the Rocket will fire everything !!
Ok, now everybody knows all my life… is Sir Kilgroe awake and agree to confirm I'm a genius ?! ; )
