high end son
whatre the blacks like on them dells
what are you doing where you need that much RAM?
pix then post
Are you getting a 3008? I'd be interested in your feed back on it if you are.
i will always have vmware fusion running xp which semi ram hungry programs and want to be able to beat the shit out of the OSX side
the 3007 is what i have now so ill just get another one of those.
all it would be used for is for computer work.. i have a tv for watching movies and tv etc
unless your running that same shit they had in that movie deja vu where they can look back 3.5(?) days ago.
I've got 5gb in mine and I haven't even come close to using it all yet.
Even with photoshop cs3, lightroom, dreamweaver, itunes, safari, ical, mail, word, transmission and probably a few other things the most I saw was like 2.5 gb used.
I'm gonna have to disagree. I have a number of friends that do video production (Scooby Doo 2, Team America and other movies) and they can kill 8GB of RAM with ease. My boss kills the 4GB in his MBP with ease. Compiling an application that's over a million lines of code while having Safari open, Photoshop, and a number of other general apps can do it quick. Heck, Safari and it's memory leaks can eat it up alone.
Damn thats alot of RAM....
Unrelated, but is Control4 coming out with some sort of Media Management for OS X? Im trying to sell my parents on Control4 for their new place, but they are pretty computer-retarded and I don't think they would ever figure out running Fusion and XP just to load CD's.
its funny you ask.. i am working hard to have an OSX media app done very very soon
Maybe, maybe not...I regularly pageout my G5 with 5.5 and that's only feeding 2 cores with render threads. My 4 way mac pro at work was problematic at 6 quite often...I'd have to throttle rendering to 2-3 threads to keep it usable. 8-10+ is easily usable with a lot of apps
Break out After Effects
Not if you don't use it. More memory doesn't make a system faster unless you are using software that can utilize it, and thus preventing using the hard drive. My wife has 4Gb in her MP and never uses that much, I can utilize more than 2GB per core with what I do (can't afford to though ).
I'm assuming everyone in this thread is a Mac Pro owner or is quite familiar with the machine. Has anyone seen a lot of problems reported with the new Harpertown around the web? I switched not long ago and recently placed an order for a 2.8 standard but the early batch seems to be plagued with a lot of little things like sleep/restart problems, Bluetooth, Safari seizing up, etc.
Over at Macrumors, they compiled a poll and about 1/5th of owners have some kind of problem. Pretty pathetic for Apple. My MBP is flawless in the year that I have owned it.
Hey Loudsystem, did you order it from OWC or another 3rd party vendor or did you splurge on Apple ram? I know you have a taste for expensive things so who knows?
1gb does me just fine thanks
OWC is where i ordered from
no one except pixar and ilm need that much ram
