    i read up on it but its too dangerous to risk my multi-thousand dollar investment on something that saves me a few minutes here or there.

    I'd never try it if I had a mac pro.

    like the mac pro needs to be any more powerful.

    Seriously. What are they doing where eight 3Ghz processors simply aren't cutting it?

    Faster speed without having to pay for the faster processor. Wouldn't you like a 3GHz processor for the price of a 2.6GHz?

    We're talking about multi-core CPU's here now. Maybe back when single and dual-cores were in their infancy, but now there is so much power being untouched it's pointless.

    Would not touch with a million mile barge pole on a £3000 Mac. Not a chance.

    Alot of software still doesn't utilize multiple cores, so faster processors are still important.
