Ask Max: Which Mac Pro offers the best power and performance?

Asked on 07/24/2009:

I'm looking at the new Mac Pro. Of the following, which provides better power and performance: Quadcore 2.93GHz or 8core 2.66GHz?




It all depends on the application you are using. If the primary application you are running is multi-threaded then the 8 Core model is the best choice. It is also the right choice for any RAM hungry applications because you have twice the RAM controllers and slots. However, for older software that just needs clock cycles the 2.93 Ghz will help you more than extra cores and RAM in your Mac Pro.
