Default Re: AVID incredibly poor customer service

+1 on graphics and hyperthreading.

Do you use a lot of VIs? There are a lot of people offloading VIs to Vienna Ensemble Pro see this video

Also try closing both the mix and edit windows (keep the system usage window open) to see how much that reduces CPU usage (mine drops by about 10% on my cheese grater Mac).

You can also check how much your graphics card is being taxed while running your sessions using the activities monitor window.

Be aware that pro tools is only optimized for 1080p so try a lower resolution or if you have a screen with a max resolution of 1080p try that.
