16 streams of 4K from the new Mac Pro establish the its credentials as a serious editing workstation
We just wanted to mention that Engadget is reporting that they've seen 16 streams of 4K playing simultaneously on a new Mac Pro. With a PCI e architecture and the entire system designed around speed and native 4K performance, this is the fist demonstration of the power of this 9" cylinder.
We weren't give an details of the set-up or the format of the material being played back (we don't know if it's uncompressed, compressed, and if it is, which codec was used).
Only released yesterday
With the machine only released today, we're still waiting to see detailed benchmarks, but it's clear that for all its apparent lack of expandability, at the very least, the new Mac Pro is a computer to be reckoned with.
