Primate Lab's John Poole has released estimated Geekbench scores for the upcoming four, six, eight, and twelve-core Mac Pro configurations. His estimates are based on leaked benchmarks and results from Windows workstations that use the same processors.

Using the information on the Mac Pro specification page and the Intel ARK processor database, it's likely processors in the new Mac Pro are the Xeon E5-1620 (4-core), Xeon E5-1650 (6-core), Xeon E5-1680 (8-core), and the Xeon E5-2697 (12-core). Poole's benchmark estimates for each can be seen in the charts below.

The upcoming Mac Pro will have significantly better single-core performance than the current Mac Pro. For example, the upcoming 4-core model will be between 50% and 75% faster, and the upcoming 12-core model between 16% and 32% faster, than the equivalent current models. Multi-core performance is also significantly better. The upcoming 4-core model will be between 58% and 78% faster than the current 4-core models, and the upcoming 12-core model will be between 17% and 47% faster than the current 12-core models. The 6-core and 8-core models are also quite speedy. The upcoming 6-core model will only be 10% slower than the current base 12-core model, and the 8-core model is faster than most of the current 12-core models.

You're good writer, as allowed me to generate my informative experiences. I've unruffled got a consultation of essay writer find more information utility. This worldwide skill was very handy for me.

Isn't the single core score for the 8-core version too high? It's has a considerably slower clock, although it maybe has the same Turbo Boost speed. At any rate, it shouldn't be higher than the processors with fewer cores.

I just wonder what these numbers mean for me as a print designer. Which new Mac Pro do I get for use with Illustrator, Photoshop and InDesign?

I believe with those applications the 4 and 6 core models will do fine. (you might even consider a fully loaded iMac) I believe programs like photoshop only use a max of 4 cores, and then core-speed becomes more important. One thing is certain, only specific software will use all the 8 or 12 cores of the more expensive models so when you don't have that software you don't need it. Perhaps an email to adobe could clear things up for you. also good to check is which gpu's you'll need. I assume the D700's will be very expensive but might probably be total overkill... Personally i'm going for the 8 core with the D500's but the pricetag is gonna hurt i'm sure :-)
