Applications :: What Software Is Written For Eight Processor Cores

Mar 30, 2009

I'm looking at replacing my ancient G5 tower with a new Mac Pro, and looking at the options, obviously I have to decide between the single CPU quad-core or the 2 CPU "eight-core" solution.

Desktops :: Cores Or Faster Processor For Video Editing?

Jun 16, 2009

I am in the market for a Mac Pro for all my FCP editing. I found a guy who can get me a great deal on a brand new 8 core 2.8GHz Mac Pro, but it is the older version before the "Nehalem" chips.

This computer will be right around the same price as purchasing a brand new quad core 2.93GHz Nehalem Mac Pro.

So what I need to figure out is, what is more important, more cores, or faster newer processor?

Mac Pro :: Best For Pro Tools 8 Cores 4 Cores?

Mar 16, 2009

I Have been agonizing over which Mac Pro would optimize the performance of my Digital Audio Workstations, Pro Tools in particular. Honestly, I have been back and forth with deliberating that now I am burnt out,

I hear Mixed Reviews on the New Nehalem 2.26 GHz Mac Pro Octo. I have also come to believe that 8 Cores Benefit Video More Than Audio, the diagnosis being that 8 Cores Is Overkill for audio. Is Pro Tools A Multi-Threaded App. And What Mac Pro Would Be Best For Audio?

Applications :: Can Utilization Graphs Actually Be Trusted When The 8 Cores Are Virtual

Nov 17, 2009

Just got my i7 iMac the other day. Not all apps use all cores (as expected), but I'm interested to understand this one. Export MPEG2 (TS stream) from EyeTv to AppleTv format (I think it uses quicktime but can't tell).

Check out the pic. Now there are 4 real cores, but OSX is showing the 8 virtual cores. Anyway, given there are 4 cores, what does it imply to have around 50% total utilisation? Two threads? Four threads?

I notice that BOINC (einstein@home) only gets up to total utilisation when its running 8 threads. Does this mean that EyeTv (quicktime) is asking for number of cores and then creating that many threads? EyeTv is only showing one line time in Activity Monitor at around 400%.

Can these utilisation graphs actually be trusted when the 8 cores are virtual?

Mac Pro :: What Does More Cores Mean

May 14, 2008

I hear people saying stuff like " to bad that 8 cores wont be used" Or " 8 cores can actually be slower and 2 cores"

How is that?

Wouldn't a 8 core 2.8ghz be faster than the 4 core 2.8ghz in the mac pro?

What would the 8 core be good for? Or doing what puts those 8 cores to use?

And finally is the 8 cores worth getting?

Applications :: Any Way Of Importing Name And Address To Word Processor?

Dec 18, 2010

I need a database of names and addresses that can be exported into a word processor for output of paper letters, with envelopes. Would anyone know of the best way to effect this? Anymore I use email, but in this instance that will not work. The standard Address Book would work fine for the data, but I find no way of importing each name and address to a word processor, such as Text Edit. The closest I've come is exporting a vCard from Address Book, which then can be opened by Text Edit, however not only several steps required, but also a profusion of needless data entwining the name and address. If not wishing to pay for all the many features of iWork, I'm not even sure if this suite of programs would answer this task, either. If preferring to use the Address Book, what would be the best solution, possibly software, to do this?

Applications :: Measure RAM / Processor Usage Of Running

Mar 1, 2009

I was wondering if there is an application available that will allow you measure how much a running application is tasking your RAM and processor. (I ask because I recently downloaded a programme called DarkAdapter. It allows me to make my display even dimmer than the default dimming device on the new unibody Macbook. When I run the programme, however, my machine noticeably slows down.)

Applications :: Word Processor For Mac With Spellchecker Interface?

Jan 11, 2010

Can anyone tell me if there is a word processor available for the Mac with a spellchecker interface similar to the one used in WordPerfect? I have recently purchased a Mac and would like to install a word processor on it. I am dyslexic and I have found the WordPerfect spellchecker interface to be the best one I've come across for my needs, far better than MS Word. This also includes being better than Text Help System's Read & Write, the spellchecking application designed and recommended for dyslexics! In WordPerfect, if you don't spell a word correctly, you can retype the spelling. Instead of having to hit suggest, it automatically makes suggestions as you retype.

This way, after only typing part of the word, you may see the correct spelling come up. If your new suggestion is wrong you can then simply retype the word until you get a suggestion which works. Much quicker than hitting suggest 4-5 times and it takes into account the original misspelt word when making the new suggestions. In comparison the version of Read and Write I have, which was released in 2006, didn't even have a suggest option. So much for specialist software. In fact it didn't even have the word dyslexic in it's dictionary, until I point out this omission to them! If there isn't such a word processor available for the Mac, I might consider buying and installing WordPerfect X4 in my virtual Windows 7. However having purchased a Mac, I would prefer where possible to use Mac based software.

Mac Pro :: Use Lightroom And 4/8 Cores?

Dec 15, 2008

People that use lightroom, can you look at your CPU usage for all 4/8 cores and tell me what the usage is when your importing/searching/doing whatever and if there is any point in me getting 8 instead of 4 cores (Save myself �300 and get 8gb ram vs 4Gb!)

System will be on 300Gb Velociraptor and data on a 1TB Samsung F1, so lets say IO won't be that bottlenecked.

Mac Pro :: Which Video Editor Make Use Of All Eight Cores?

Feb 16, 2008

Which, if any, of the video editors make use of all eight cores of the Mac Pro? I haven't tried the pro apps yet, but CPU utilization for iMovieHD was only about 200% on the one project I have done on my new 2.8 Octo. It seems like this would be widely-known information, but I was unable to find it on Apple's site, and my extensive search of this forum was unavailing.

Mac Pro :: 2.8 Versus 3.0/3.2Ghz Quad Cores

Feb 23, 2009

Are the incremental steps in processor options worth it? are they significant enough to notice performance increases? especially heavy files in photoshop

Also is the 8800 GT worth getting over the 2600 XT. and can one have two 8800's (or is that too much power draw). I am assuming you can have one of each (1x 8800 + 1x 2600) so you can run 3 spanning 30's. Any drawbacks in have spanning screens with different spec cards?
