[Herb Sevush] "Jeremy - are you using these yourself and getting this thruput?"

I do not have an iMac, but I have played with a TBolted iMac and a Promise Raid and it gets astounding speeds never seen before on an iMac. It was hovering around 780MB/sec consistently. I did not want to believe it either.

Of course, the raid was mostly empty, and probably not very fragmented. Even so, my guess is it goes down 100 MB/sec which leaves 650+. How much do you really need? I'm asking honestly.

I've seen 250+MB/sec off of one SSD drive.

And I'll tell you again, you don't need 900MB/sec to do a 6 camera mutlicam in 720p60 ProRes.

These are realities, not theories. Anyone who says that they can't cut video on an iMac with a TBolt raid hasn't tried it.

I'm not saying it's a sizzle core, but it's certainly snappier than my "tricked out" 3 year old MacPro with a fast fibre raid.
