I am editing with PPCC2014 on an iMac that is a few years old. I think it has a dual core processor in it. Everything works great but I am looking for a way to shorten my render times. To render a one hour time line it may take up to two hours. If I upgraded to a machine with 12 cores would my render time be significantly shorter?
Of course if you upgraded to an easily overclocked .PC 8-core I7 you might do better than a dual 6-core Xeon or a single 12-core at much less cost.
