Fascinating Benchmark for new iMac
 
Got the new iMac 2.8 with 4MB of memory.

Downloaded 7.3.1.
In the past I have run PT on an old G4 Dual450 and for the past two years, on a 1.4 iBook. Could never run many tracks or plug-ins.

Well, I put the DigiDesign Demo song 'SALVATION' that came with PT6 (and 5) on the new iMac. I have never been able to play the whole thing before...it is 18 tracks with many plug ins.
Well, on the new iMac it never used more than 1.02 megs of the memory....and never used more than 24% of the dual processing power! The new iMac is very powerful.
