Default Re: Mac Mini 2018 & PT...

hey, I bought the new Macmini 2018 a few months ago and am running PT 2019.6 Ultimate. I added 32 Gigs of ram purchased via OWC.

One thing I discovered the unit will only support 3 displays and we needed 4 so we bought the AJA T-Tap for the TV monitor. ( I do audio Post production)

I also discovered by adding the T-Tap to this mix it seriously reduced the amount of CPU usage the computer needed to render video, the T-Tap takes up that load and deals with video compression codecs and removes the computer CPU from having to deal with that intense CPU task.

So far I can run projects that I'm pre-mixing on my MacPro late 2013 (3.5 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon E5 64 gigs ram) without any issues on the macmini 2018. When I look at the System Usage window in protools and compare that usage with my macpro the 2 units are using approximately the same amount of CPU. ( also note this comparable CPU usage only happened once I introduced the T-Tap to this mix)
