  • Penryn Experience...

    Now that the first Penryn chips have been out a bit, has anyone had any experience with one of these workstations and Edius yet?

    Has GV had a chance to play with a Penryn for testing/benchmarking?

    I haven't heard of any test results here.

      Just wondering if the larger cache and faster/wider front buss will actually have a big jump for editing.

        Here's a test Apple did:

        http://www.apple.com/macpro/performance.html

        It seems that there is only about 7% of difference on my 65nm processors vs. the new Penryn ones, going head to head at 3.0vs3.0. 3.2vs.3.0, the speed increase is about 10%. Not much if you ask me.

        I think the biggest achievement is that it eats less power, so your computer wont get so hot....and SSE4, which is a new one from Intel.

          And it opens up, at least for Mac users, the ability to use the latestest video card technology.

            Yeah, but by the time everyone has the 8800GT in their Mac, the 9xxx series will come out and we're back at square one :D

            I think Apple put itself in a weird situation with Intel...they now need to update much more frequently than when they were with PowerPC.
