Took the dive...no regrets
I had my studio computer die on me before expected. The plan was to wait for the Mac Pro modular but I had to get back to work & wanted a workhorse I could count on for years & despite being skeptical about the “locked in” nature of the iMac Pro I took the chance. I’d been doing fine w/ less than half the power so I expected & nice bump & I got that & more. Side bonus? Runs crazy quiet so no need to build a new iso box for the new rig. Screen is plenty large enough & crazy sharp -I’m ditching the honestly excessive monitor I’d been using. I have yet to intentionally try and blow the cap on tracks/plugs but sessions I used to hit 80% or more on my old rig? This guy just chews thru ‘em without the fan even kicking on.
Note that this is the base model I believe:
3.2 Xeon W 32 gig
I do run largely a hardware joint but even on very (VERY) plugin heavy sessions this guy has yet to break a sweat. No regrets.
