8 Heads Are Better Than One.

Apple recently made their high end Mac Pro standard with 8 CPU Cores. A machine with 8 Cores has been available for some time but now all Mac Pros have this. The Mhz race is over and programming methodologies are changing. Just as the Amiga taught the industry that architectures are more elegant when custom chips are used along with the CPU. Multi core central processing units with complementary GPU rendered graphics will change the 3D animation industry. Since Aladdin 4D has not been updated for a while and is not a monolithic code base we can take advantage of these new ways of thinking.
