    What do you think of buying the following configuration and replace & sell parts like CPU, RAM and SSD

    Replace & Sell
    - 8-Core CPU
    - 32GB RAM
    - 256GB SSD

    Buy
    - 28-Core CPU W-3275 non M
    - 4x 32GB RAM for 128GB
    - 1TB SSD

    This could safe us a huge amount of money we could spend on a XDR Display..

    Do you think changing parts like these would work? We own pretty powerful Hackintosh computers already but kinda feel sick of some bugs and issues while video editing our 8K R3D footage.


    MAC PRO 7,1 PROCESSOR OPTIONS

    These are the LGA3647 processors available in the Mac Pro 7,1. They were announced by Intel in June at the same time as the WWDC launch of the Mac Pro, but so far no one has seen them in the wild.

    • W-3223, 8 cores $749

    • W-3235, 12 cores:: $1398

    • W-3245, 16 cores: $1999

    • W-3265M, 24 cores: $6353

    • W-3275M, 28 cores: $7453

    Previous generation Xeon W workstation processors used the underpowered single-CPU LGA2066 socket. These new Xeon-W CPUs are similar to the Intel® Xeon® Scalable Processors and use the same #LGA3647 socket.

    The models with the "M" suffix can address two terrabytes of memory. Intel charges $3000 for internally connecting the one extra address line needed. The prices for the non-M models are $3349 and $4449.

    Last October Intel released the 28-core Xeon W-3175X processor for the LGA3647 socket at a price of $2999. The new Xeon W-3275 costs $4449 and has similar specs.

    RAM options:

    Not sure I would go there with all the colorful plumbing, but OWC memory prices are sure enticing and easy to install. The 64 GB modules are about half of what Apple charges.

    Would love to know more about RCX and Resolve performance numbers. I realize that Apple is promoting FCPX (all people who got pre-release machine talk specifics only about Apple SW or codecs running on Apple HW). I'm looking for specifics about Resolve and where performance lands at 8k with respect to 16, 24, and 28 core machines with single, dual, and/or duo GPUs.

    At 22:1 I tend to believe it without seeing it, at 5:1... no way.

    I noticed Vincent recommended the Afterburner card for RED 8K workflows --- I wonder if he knows something :-)
