I'm looking to get a brand-new Mac Pro, and I'm not sure if I should go for quad or eight-core. I'll be running DP with an enormous amount of tracks and plugins, including many instances of Vienna Instruments.
I've been told that most plugins don't even know how to handle 4 cores, let alone 8! Does anyone know more about this issue?
I want to get a machine that will be able to keep up for a few years, but I don't want to overdo it.
