Default mac pro 2014 8 core or 12 core

Posting this again, , posted it previously in the PT 11 software forum.

I would like to know if you have any advice regarding a Mac pro upgrade with PT 11. Im currently on a 2011 machine with Protools 10 HD 3. Im buying a new mac pro for PT11 only and would like to get some advice re the new 2014 Mac pro. 12 Core with 64 GB ram, or will the 8 core with 64 GB ram be more than enough. I do runs quite a bit of VI's and currently use vienna, but would like to do everything in PT.
Any advice, ? will the 12 core machine be $1500 more powerfull and stable, or wastin money?

Until optimized, the 6-core is just as fast as top-of-the-line fully loaded MBP

I wouldn't go with the 12 core if I were you. You would be taking a performance hit in single-threaded tasks. I have the 6 core and it's amazing. The price jump for the 8 core didn't make sense for me, but if the money isn't an issue for you, the 8 core would give you the best overall performance.
