What slowdown?

Most of the internet benchmarks seem to show that running FCP X on an off-th-shelf “turnkey system” iMac Pro - equals or exceeds the productivity of ANY comparable build to suit system out there.

That may not be achievable via Premiere or AVID - but That’s what the literature suggests for editors who think like me.

So far I haven’t heard about any Hacintosh editors achieving productivity gains OR effectively saving any money via BTO options - so it’s not relevant to me.

If or when that changes, I’ll reconsider.

I will say I truly don’t miss the constant study required to know which building block components represented the best bang for the buck in do-it-yourself computing.

Maybe some of that will return with whatever “modularized” MacPro replacement is on the horizon - but I kinda hope they do “packaged” pre-tuned system’s even in that space.

As I noted up top - my interest in DYI “hot rodding” is history.
