Default Re: Advice? '09 8-core Mac or '10 quad-core for PT 10 Native?

Personally I would recommend in this order (priority):
1. Higher CPU speed
2. More cores

So I would rather take a 3.2GHz 4-core CPU that a 2.2GHz 8-core CPU.

I don't think there's that much of an improvement in 2009 vs. 2010 MacPRO that I would immediately discard the 2009 model.

But please consult with some other people on the forum as I am also currently running my system on a 2009 MacPRO (8-core @ 2.93GHz) and have not bought the 2010 model (nor do I intend to).
Main DAW: MacPRO 5.1, 8-Core Xeon 2.93GHz, 24 GB RAM, OSX 10.13.6, HDX2, PT2019 Ultimate, 2x UAD-2 Quad Satellites (v9.x) 2x HD I/Os, 1x Omni HD I/O, C|24 Control Surface
Auxilary DAW: MacBook Pro with Retina Display (2012), 2.6GHz quad-core Intel Core i7, 16GB RAM, OSX 10.13.6, PT2019 Ultimate, 1x UAD Apollo Quad Audio Interface /w Thunderbolt Interface (v9.x)
