I work for a business that uses Toast 10 very heavily on a daily basis. At the moment we use the following machine:
Apple 21" iMac
Processor 3.06GHz Intel Core i3
Memory 4GB 1333 MHz DDR3
ATI Radeon HD 4670 256MB
OS X Mountain Lion
My question is whether there would be significantly reduced processing time burning data to discs using Toast 10 if we upgraded to the soon to be released Mac pro desktop (I'm assuming I won't be allowed to post the link so I've summarised a few points below).
It's a little difficult to give exact stats to compare to, as the machine hasn't been released yet, but the promo is suggesting some of the following:
- New gen xeon processors (12 core)
- up to 60gb memory bandwidth
- up to 40gb pci express bandwidth
Basically, I'm just wondering if there is a point at which upgrading the hardware will no longer bring much benefit to the performance of Toast as I have no doubt this new Mac will cost a fortune. The investment will be worth it though if it means that Toast will perform significantly faster. Thank you in advance for your advice.
