And actually proRes would need faster drives than h264 just due to the larger data sizes being pushed. But h264 is more taxing in the decompression end of things. I think that's where the bottleneck would be.

I just finished a 9 way multicam edit from a c300 on a 2012 iMac i7. It wasn't enough of an issue to warrant transcoding anything. I can't remember the last time I edited proRes. I think people do it out of habit or misguided info. For sure, those working on the older MacPros are at a disadvantage to the i7 iMacs. I've done my own tests and couldn't tell the difference in 1080p. FCP gets laggy either way. Nothing ProRes can do to fix that.
