Compressor 3 and dual 2.7 G5 vs. 8 core Mac Pro

Well we turned everything over to the new 8 core MacPro.

Latest results encoding 1:35:00 720p60 Pro Res HQ program (self contained QT file) to MPEG2...

MacPro 8 core (3.0 GHZ) takes 23 hours to encode.

G5 dual 2.7 takes 19 hours to encode.

What?! Both machines fully updated as of today. The Mac Pro has 8GB of RAM. The G5 has 1.5!

Pretty disapointing after a $5K upgrade.

Sigh.
