I'm about to order a new Mac Pro for a Nuendo 6 composer. He's a Mac guy and needs a reliable production machine, so Hackintosh and PC not an option. He's willing to spend whatever, so I'm about to order a 12-core, but I just want to confirm that Nuendo 6 can use 12 cores (24 processing threads).
The CPU speed drops as you get to higher numbers of cores. So if, for example, Nuendo only uses 16 threads (8 cores), it would be better to get an 8-core,
Also, he's currently using an Black Magic "Intensity Pro" PCIe card for external TV. I'm assuming that Black Magic's thunderbolt version will work instead?
Thanks in advance.
