    128GB RAM and 16 cores / 32 threads X9DAI

    Thanks for all the awesome info. I have been debating just that, building a previous gen workstation on the SR-2. However the thought of buying and spending so much on tech from 2010 when the newest tech has arrived is painful. I just got back from NAB 2012 (National Association of...

    Any updates!? I'm getting close to having to make a decision on my next workstation and I would love to hear if you were able to improve on your OS X performance.

    New Intel Xeon E5 Series

    If this is true and the code does work, I'm super tempted! I need to buy the most bleeding edge tech I can get so it will last me another 5-6 years like my current Mac Pro workstation. But I'm not ready to let go of OS X until the professional nail in the coffin. However I'm scared to tackle a...

High-End Film & Video work, Compositing, Motion Graphics, & 3D rendering. Those areas no i7 based system can suffice for gobs of memory and dual Xenons. Sadly Apple has...

    New Intel Xeon E5 Series

    Thanks. Yeah I have seen those but I wonder and question is if the new Sandy Bridge E5 Xeons will even work on a hackintosh since there are no official Macs with these new processors as of yet?

    New Intel Xeon E5 Series

    Does anyone know or have had success with the brand new Intel Xeon E5 Sandy Bridge series? I'm currently running a 6 year old Mac Pro and it's time to upgrade. However I think I need to keep my options open for when Apple ditches the Mac Pro's all together...if they haven't already. I would love...
