Mac Pro, Quad-core or 6-core (or more?)

I want to know if Ableton Live is optimised to use multicores. Is buying a computer with more than 4 cores is really worth it ? 

How Live takes advantages of the extra power ?

    Ableton does have Multicore support.

    But having a good processor is only one part of having a fast and functional computer. RAM and Drive speed have a lot to do with it as well. Having 8gb+ of RAM and a Solid State Drive is highly recommended.

    I'am wondering, cause i still searching for any test or advice about the new MAC PRO Quad - or 6 core in kombination with Ableton Live 9, but i haven't found serious information. This time i use the MAc Book Pro 2.2 GHz 8 Gb 1333MHz ram Intel Core 7i, Virus ti0 , Line 6 Pod X3 pro, mopho x4 and a Fireface 400, 25 mixed tracks in a song for example are running at 50 % of my Live engine. But if i switch some plugin's .... the fun ends.And i would like to know does the new Mac Pro causes or solves any problems  like this. How is the Workflow and wich one is the better/best choise. Any advice ?
