Since hardware and speeds seems to be a hot topic I think this set of Barefeats tests are interesting.

Looks like a nice computer. I wonder how the fan noise is? One of the reasons I've shied away from PC workstations is that even the ones known to be relatively quiet sound like small vacuum cleaners.

I just rebuilt a PC for my Fairlight and used a Corsair water cooler with a nice big fan. Makes the same noise as my MacPro but as both are inside a machine room with Raven sealed sound proof doors I can't hear a thing anyway.

There is no reason to have a noisy computer these days regardless of platform.

It's not loud. As loud as my CalDigit HD One.

Wake up, peoplee Apple has ceded this market sector to the Windows-compatible hardware vendors. Sad but true. At this point, the only people who are missing out on the hardware fun are the FCP X fans and the Smoke on OS X hopefuls. Autodesk had better wake up and smell the Windows coffee, lest they be relegated to OS X irrelevance.

That machine is a monster. Throw in a quadro card and I care not what OS is running under the hood. Avid and Premiere Pro look the same once you double clicked the icon.

The thing that amazed me about that comparison: a Mac Pro has FOUR slots for memory, the ProMAX ONE has SIXTEEN slots. Running with memory in the same neighborhood as the Mac was like fighting with, uhm, three hands tied behind its back.

That's the thing. You can do more with it.

Actually the Mac Pro has 8 slots depending on single chip or dual chip.

Quite so. Thanks for the correction. I'll be more careful.

I doublechecked the ProMAX ONE though -- still has 16. :-)

Thanks again,

Anyone have an idea about how much such a box would go for?

The ProMax One looks like a beast of a workstation but one major flaw with it I see. WINDOWS! Sorry but Apple hasn't ticked me off that badly yet for me to change over.
