Tom, the only thing that is absolutely clear from my experience lately is a major reinforcement of the idea that the foundational programming of FCP X is the type of code that was written for where the hardware capabilities of modern computers were going - not where they had been. Even the "new" MacPro is (in computer terms) aging tech hardware now. And the latest MacBook Pro performance I'm seeing is MILES ahead of what I was experiencing prior to my recent upgrade. This theme echoed the stories from last year about how iMacs from some months after the new MacPros intro were giving them a run for their money in editing speed. This all causes me to wonder two things. What will future CPU and GPU advances enable? And what the landscape will look like for X editing when Apple inevitably updates the Cylinder? Just food for thought.
