I'm really really curious, and not at all wanting to post something that flames a huge mac/PC argument....but...... can someone with a high spec HP machine, or similar PC build give me some kind of idea of performance when working with footage that requires serious grunt. Like 6K red dragon footage or 4K red epic footage? Footage stored on an external RAID either on thunderbolt/SATA/USB3....?

Can you play it back and edit freely in Premiere/AVID?

If you are working on an old school mac pro and working in FCPX what is performance like?

How long is it taking to export a 1min sequence with no colour correction to pro res/h264/mjpeg?

I know the 2013 MP isn't for everyone, but for the work I've been doing which involves footage like this it has been pretty impressive. It has some strange quirks with audio and speed exporting to h264 is not good compared with macbook pro or iMac, but I'm really intrigued to know what else I could get for my money if not a mac pro...?
