I need to build a workstation for editing HD and have much to learn. However, I will have to learn under fire as I have contracts and no time to daudle. I am considering a very up to date build with 2 quad-core 3.0 GHz Xeon processors. Does productivity increase substantially with eight cores when running PP CS3?
where will I see the time savings, improved workflow? Roughly what percentage better than a four core system?
I don't mind spending the money, I just don't want to waste it.
