Default Re: Does "Westmere" qualification apply to "Bloomfield" and "Gulftown" also?

My Nehalem Mac Pro is early 2009, and is designated 4,1.

Everymac does show which Mac Pros had the 45nm vs 32 nm.

ProTools with Mountain Lion is supported back to the early 2009 Nehalems.

The issue is that not all the software out there can truly take advantage of a dozen cores. The other issue is the expense of a dual six-core vs a single quad core. Initially, some users were reporting better results with a faster quad core vs a slower octo core.
