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?

Jan 7, 2010

I used to have an Apple application that sat in the menu bar. It gave you the option to select how many processors/cores you wanted to utilize. You could turn off the others.

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.)

MacBook Pro :: Ram Usage Is Showing Wrong Number?

May 30, 2012

MacBook Pro 10.6.8 [url]I need someone to explain this to me...RAM usage of all open programs together amounts to approx 1.5 there should be over 2.0 GB left...why is there only 203 MB left? I'm getting so sick of this.. my computer is incredibly slow.. it's amazing how no matter what you do computers always become slow eventually, no matter what you do.. (mine is about 1 1/2 yrs old) I thought with a mac this might be different, but no dice...4 GB really should be enough, certainly for the programs I have open that show in the screenshot..(I have plenty of free room in HD, by the way, so that's not the problem)

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?

App Store :: Deleted Application From Mac But Update Still Showing In List

Apr 4, 2012

I have a issue with my app store. When I downloaded a free app from the app store and later decided that I do not need it, I just erased it. What I have observed is that the updates for the application are still in the list in the app store. I tried to install the application again, and install the update, but when the new updates came out, it started repeating.

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?

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.

OS X :: Remote Access & Monitoring?

Jan 13, 2011

So two questions (I will try to write out as best as I can, hopefully it's understandable).

1: Is it possible that while I am on a business trip with my laptop that if I needed to access my network at work that I can remotely access it to view computers on the network with abilities to grab files from a computer, check things / alter things, and maintain. If so how?

2: If someone is on my network is it possible to see what traffic they are bringing in or out of my network without installing a file on their pc / mac to know the site they entered, file download, etc.

Applications :: Monitoring Webpages For Changes?

Nov 25, 2008

I was wondering if anyone knows of a good app for the Mac that will monitor a given web page for any changes in content and immediately send an email or other alert letting me know. I don't care so much about the particular changes, just the fact that a change was made.

I was looking at Web Secretary, but it's a *nix app that doesn't have a GUI and I'm not entirely sure it would do what I need. I would rather have something a bit more user-friendly anyway, and preferably free.
