It's looking like an 8 core Mac will be the minimum to run Adobe Premiere Pro CS 5.5 / AJA Kona combination. We have a single four core machine and while it can play with FCP fine and ProRes, the activity monitor shows that the CPUs completely max out with Premiere and the Kona playing a ProRes timeline. This causes dropped frames continuously. Remarkably though, the system does keep playing, it doesn't just grind to a halt like FCP would with the dropped frames.

When I switched over to one of our 8 core machines, everything went beautifully. Still testing, but it's looking like the four core machine is not going to cut it for this configuration.
