3.46GHz 12 Core Mac Pro CPU Upgrade Benchmarked: Pro Tools Expert try out a 2 x Intel Xeon X5690 Mac Pro system

Our good friends at Pro Tools Expert recently put one of our 3.46GHz 6 core Intel Xeon X5690 CPU upgrades through it’s paces, the results were great and James has been really pleased with his system. We thought we would take it one step further, however, and have now upgraded James to a 3.46GHz 12 core system. In true Pro Tools Expert style, he put it through his signature benchmarking tests and the results were staggering to say the least.

As the video says, we’re also going to perform some more upgrades on James’ system, extra RAM, flash storage etc. We’ll be sure to benchmark those too.
