22 Apr Post NAB Rumors
EDIT for those who didn’t check the date, this is for NAB 2009.
I know it’s customary to hear rumors prior to a show, not after…but it’s quite interesting when the brain trusts of the industry get together and swap stories.
Among the goodies:
Final Cut Studio 3: Increased RED support (confirmed), as well as no support for blu-ray within DVD Studio Pro. I am unsure if this means no authoring ability or the user not being able to even build a project.
Avid: Specs for Nehalem support. This is, of course, unofficial.
Nehalem Mac Pro
2.66 or 2.93 Quad
Core Intel Xeon processors (8-core)
6BG of 1066 DDR3 ECC SDRAM
NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 512MB**
640GB 7200-rpm SATA 3Gb/s
**It should be mentioned that I did not see any Mini Display Port extenders on the NAB show floor, which make any Nehalem Mac install extraordinarily difficult. One can, of course, convert to DVI, as a fallback.
More as they trickle in.
