Will the new Mac Pro 8 core Xeon add any advantages while working with Media 100 HD? Or will it in the future?

Thanks

The more CPU power the more realtime effects ;-)
Really, as long as your peripherals (e.g. RAID) can keep up, additional CPU power enables more effects. E.g. you can get realtime transitions, ColorFX and Alpha channels on HD Uncompressed footage on a QuadG5, which you cannot on a DualG5. So expect to see even more realitme on an 8Core Intel system.

What should should you look at to see if your Raid can keep up? So for example if I'm using a Firewire 400/800 or a CalDigit Raid or what have you - which benchmark does one check out to see if they will work well together. I know you want your devices to have similar speeds for the to work well together. Is it the processor speed? The data transmission rate?

As always, thanks for the knowledge.
