In this test, the eight-core 3GHz system was 44 percent faster than the quad-core 3GHz model, finishing the job in just 14 seconds; the quad took 25 seconds. The other test that showed measurable improvement, however modest, was encoding a movie using Compressor 3. Running Compressor 3 with multiple cores gets complicated. In the Qmaster control panel, you can set a cluster to handle a specific number of cores by configuring Instances.
You can also use Qmaster to put idle computers on your network to work on tasks, but for our tests we used only our internal processors. Our DVD encoding test worked best when splitting the processors up into four instances. When we did this, the eight-core machine managed to squeeze out speed improvements of between 9 to 15 percent over the quad-core model. With the additional memory, the eight-core model ended up winning each of our professional application tests.
Adding the RAM helped each computer snip a second or two off of the Photoshop and Compressor tests, but our Cinema 4D render test is almost entirely processor driven and was unaffected by the additional RAM. To see how multiple cores might help a system run multiple tasks simultaneously, we created something of a torture test: We ran three professional program tests while timing the Photoshop suite.
When run alone, there was very little difference between the time it took the eight-core and the quad-core Mac Pro to finish the Photoshop suite. While running this special torture test, the eight-core model took 86 percent longer to complete the Photoshop part of the test. Overall, that model was still 24 percent faster than the quad-core Mac Pro when running the entire multiple-program test with 4GB of RAM.
The eight-core Mac Pro was 44 percent faster than our 2. In the default configuration, one internal 3.
