    8 core Mac renders slower than dual core iMac ! ????

    rickmorton

      I have a 3.6 gig core duo iMac witgh 8 gigs..

      Also an 8 core Mac Pro with 12 gigs of ram.

      I have an AE comp with some particles, motion, etc.

      Watching the render in the queue the iMac renders a frame per second.

      Watching the render on the Mac Pro, the render is about 1 frame in 4 seconds.

      We've changed the settings in the Multi-processing prefs, but the most we can get

      is one frame in 1 second using multi-core. Why is the iMac as fast as the Mac Pro?

      I don't get it.
