Will my Mac Pro Tower handle FCPX?
on Dec 8, 2012 at 11:04:04 pm

I would like to migrate to FCPX from my present FCP6 on OS 10.5.8 and will probably get a 27" iMac in the spring. As of now I need to limp along with my tower which is probably five years old. Here's the specs:

Model Name: Mac Pro
Model Identifier: MacPro3,1
Processor Name: Quad-Core Intel Xeon
Processor Speed: 2.8 GHz
Number Of Processors: 2
Total Number Of Cores: 8
L2 Cache (per processor): 12 MB
Memory: 6 GB
Bus Speed: 1.6 GHz
Boot ROM Version: MP31.006C.B05
SMC Version (system): 1.25f4

I don't know if I can improve the speed or memory, can I? Will this work with FCPX and/or do I need to upgrade to a newer OS?

Many thanks for your advice!
