Im finally replacing my 11 year old Mac Pro, its been a workhorse but the Mac graveyard is calling. Im going for the following spec IMac..
27″ Retina 5K Display
3.6GHz 8-core 9th-generation Intel Core i9 processor, Turbo Boost up to 5.0GHz
8 GB of RAM (buy a 32 GB RAM upgrade from a 3rd party)
I'm toying with a 512ssd for the internal drive. I'd like to keep that really for current projects and then archive to external drives.
A couple of questions...
Can I run FCPX from the ssd but possibly, have my footage on an external and edit from there? Could I actually run FCPX from an external drive? I'm thinking, keeping the internal boot drive as clear as possible is always a good idea.
Same sorta question for Motion and After Effects, any ideas with those??
Also, If I did opted for a Fusion Drive instead of an ssd (save cash) can the Fusion be exchanged for an ssd at a later date??
