    No. No PCI slots.

      Thanks for your quick reply. I was afraid of that. However, what will the RT be with the Mac Pro (2) Dual Core Intels?

        I guess since you are using a Storm, we're talking about DV. Edius RT with OHCI is very good on any current multi-core computer, so that is the case with the MacPro (and dual-booting with Bootcamp). The main thing that you're missing is sync between the computer display and your external display--Edius through OHCI is out by a disturbing amount. You definitely have to adjust that part of your workflow.

          I believe Apple doesn't have Quad Core Mac Pro's anymore, they are all 8 cores stock, even the cheapest one. But these machines are really really fast, top of the crop at the moment for Xeon workstations. You could do it like me, get a Mac Pro, then add an NX Express boardset and you're good to go.

          Unfortunately you will have zero support from Grass Valley and it will be harder to troubleshoot your problems since Mac's are not supported by GV...so you will do this at your own risk.

          As far as the Storm, you might be able to eBay it and get some money back, or just leave it in your current PC and use it as a DV capture machine.

            The Quad Core is still there, but it's a single Quad Core CPU now. Doesn't look like a real good buy, relatively--I think the second CPU costs more as individual purchase than the configuration price difference. I'd bet the vast majority bite off the extra $500 even when it's tough.

              It's possible to speculate anything but I would like to see GV release a next-generation board similar to the Blackmagic eclipse with a single PCI express bus connector card leading to a smart break-out-box with a similar array of connections but including a Pegasus-like hardware encoder/decoder for Canopus HQ codec. Imagine that with HDMI, HD-SDI, component analog and audio etc....that would be so hot in a new Mac Pro. Can I have one for NAB please?

                Or... I know this is sacrilege.

                Edius could extend its support more to standard PCI-E and PCI- X Cards Like BlackMagic and AJA that have been already created.
