We have one of the new 8 core MacPros here at B-Scene and this weekend I plan to run it through it's paces. My review will be focused on FCS performance. I'll contrast it to the 2007 MacPro quad that we use.
Most reviews on these boxes tend to be focused on raw benchmark numbers ( Like MacWorld's tests HERE). I will be looking at the machine from a more post production real-world perspective. One that uses FCS 2.0 as my benchmark software.
