    Interim Mac - recommendations

    Hi all:

    Looking for an interim system, while awaiting Apple silicon compatibility.  Thinking of either Mac Pro 6,1 or Intel Mac mini.  Curious what folks are running, and what you would recommend.

    Will be running latest AVID MC, Resolve, PS/AE and Logic Pro X.  Most of my AVID work is offline DnXHD resolution.  Hoping to get a machine that runs AVID like butter.  My current 5,1 8-core is struggling on Mojave.

    Thanks in advance.

    Avid MC requires less horsepower than Resolve or Adobe. MP 6,1 or iMac will work just fine. Mac mini too, but it will be underpowered for Resolve and Adobe.
