The FAQs on the Matrox site and elsewhere all state that a Quad core system is required to be able to process HD ProRes 1080. The new MacBook Pro 17 inch i7 systems, while only having two physical cores, actually process threads at a Quad-core level due to Hyperthreading. The OS recognizes four logical CPUs.

So in this scenario, an i7 at 2.66 gHz with 8 GB of RAM, four logical processing units and Turboboost potential up to 3.33 gHz, should easily trounce the "two Dual core cpu" Mac Pro system recommended in the FAQ. Add a RAID array over Firewire 800 and we should have a winner.

I'm tempted to go forward with this based on the strength of these assumptions, but it could be an expensive mistake if it is found to be insufficient.

Does anyone at all have experience with this setup? Your input would be highly valued.

If anyone would like to send me a brand spanking new i7 MBP 17" then I'd be happy to test for you'all ... but only if I get to keep it afterwards Smile
