2013 Mac Pro: Iridient Digital Raw-to-TIF
This test writes 16-bit TIF files at 217MB each. While the SSDs involved are very fast, the Mac Pro and MacBook Pro have slower SSDs than the Mac Pros, and that slow them down a bit or not at all, depending on how Iridient Developer actually operates (synchronous or asynchronous I/O).
See the test machine configurations.
The extra CPU cores of the 12-core 3.33 GHz 2010 Mac Pro are sufficient for it to match the time of the 6-core 2013 Mac Pro, but the 8-core 3.3 GHz pulls ahead significantly.
The 12-core 2.7 GHz 2013 Mac Pro is just behind 3.3 GHz 8-core, showing that a higher clock speed and Turbo Boost trumps more cores in at least some cases. A similar relative performance is seen with the CPU-only CaptureOne Pro results. The stock Apple 3.0 GHz 8 core (not shown) would likely fall just a bit behind the 12 core.
The MacBook Pro does rather well for having only four CPU cores.
