We are still running with the CS6 Master Collection on a Mac Pro (12 core). We're looking to upgrade to the latest Mac Pro but was curious whether AE or Premiere can even leverage all 12 cores? Fact is if it can't, it would make more sense to get less/faster cores that the product can use. Any assistance would be appreciated.
Some things are multi-threaded, and some are not. Personally, I'd go for the CPUs with the faster clock speed rather than the system with more cores.
