Update:
My 2008 8 core with 12gb RAM and Radeon 5870 did 123 seconds.
My just arrived top BTO iMac (3.5) with 1 TB fusion drive but the GTX775M 2 GB video card, not the 780 with 4 GB…
with 8 gb ram did 63 seconds
with 24 gb ram did 58 seconds
tomorrow will try with 4TB (2x2TB) RAID 0 in external Thunderbolt 1 enclosure

On page 1 an iMac with the 4GB card did 52 seconds, but it doesn't say how much ram.

clintstuckey I assume you tried your testing with a fresh reboot. I don't know the video card you have. This test seems to rely on CPU, GPU, and RAM - have you tested your RAM? Just a thought...

Clintstuckey perhaps you should run Apple diagnostics and hardware tests, here's how to do it with Mavericks in this Apple support document.

I am looking to move from my wife's 2010 MBP to a new iMac for FCP X HD hobby editing (multicam HD videos 4-5 times a year is all i do). I was trying to see if I could get away with a 21-inch and so run the test today at an apple store... and also on our current good old machine - thanks for the publishing the test, here are the three benchmarks:

Mid-2010 2.4Ghz MBP, GT 330M, 8GB RAM, 750GB 3rd party "fushion" drive ... 1,350 seconds (yes, I really waited for it to complete!)

Late-2013 21" iMac, 2.9Ghz, GT 750M, 1TB SATA, 8GB RAM ... 97 seconds

Late-2013 27" iMac, 3.5Ghz, GTX 780M, 3TB fushion drive, 8GB RAM ... 50 seconds

All three systems were running Mavericks and had nothing else running. Hope this is helpful for those how are looking for a 21" inch. If anyone has a new late-2013 iMac 21" with the 3.1ghz i7, with 16GB RAM and a 1TB fushion drive, I would love to learn what results you got... that's the one I am thinking to buy, but not sure how much faster it will be (will be b/w 97 and 50 seconds I guess).

My hackintosh laptop (similar to MBP mid 2010) with GT 330M 1Gb, 8 Gb RAM, 2,4 GHz cpu did it 420 seconds with Mavericks.

My 2009 iMac (12GB RAM) on 10.8 took 180 seconds. (I actually had expected longer.)

Interestingly, it was a full 70 seconds slower on Snow Leopard. (Running dual boot system.)

MacPro4,1 early 2009 2.93 GHz 8 core Nehalem
20GB RAM
ATI Radeon HD 5870 1024 MB
OS X 10.9
SSD as main drive rendering to 7200 rpm drive

99 seconds

This looks like about the third Mac Pro with specs nearly the same.
I would really like to see a comparison with one of the new Video cards that are out like the 7950.
If there was much improvement perhaps I could postpone a new Mac Pro purchase.

I'm thinking about getting a 2013 MacBook Air 8GB with the i7. Anybody with this config able to run the benchmark?

Does Mavericks slow things down or is it the fastest OSX to use?

I find on my late 2008 Mac Pro that Mavericks gives me plenty of great performance. May not be greatly noticeably snappier, but not any slower at all. I do find the new features are making my overall OS workflow faster. Navigating the Finder is WAY easier and faster now, once you get the hang of it.

MBP, Mid 2010
2.66G IntelCore i7
NVIDIA GeForceGT 330M 512 MB

Time to complete: 15 minutes.

I normally don't deal with 2k, 4k or 5k projects so I'm not surprised the speed test was miserable.

Thumbs up on the justification for the new Mac Pro!

Here are my results, all with Mavericks 10.9.0, FCPX 10.0.9 and rendered to SSD.

MacPro 2008 8x 2,8GHz
20GB RAM
NVidia GTX 570 2560MB
Time: 110 seconds

MacBook Pro Early 2011 i7 2,3GHz
16GB RAM
ATI 6750M 1024MB
Time: 160 seconds

Old Hackintosh Intel i5-760 3.8GHz
8GB RAM 1600MHz
ATI 6870 1024MB
Time: 93 seconds

I tested my new Hackintosh with different GPU configurations:

Hackintosh Intel i7 4770K 4,3GHz
32GB RAM 2133MHz

Internal Graphics Iris Pro, Intel HD4600:
Time: 138 seconds

Intel HD4600 + ATI R9 280x (single and dual)
Time: 53-62 seconds

Single ATI R9 280x (HIS IceQ Boost Clock) Internal GPU disabled
Time: 26 seconds

Dual ATI R9 280x (HIS IceQ + Gigabyte Windforce 3x OC Rev.2) Internal GPU disabled
Time: 22 seconds

Interesting to see that FCPX doesn’t scale very well with multiple GPUs (yet). Especially with enabled Intel HD everything is bottlenecked by the internal graphics (at least on my Hackintosh). LuxMark on the other hand scales much better:
Scene: Sala (Medium Benchmark)
1x ATI 2260-2440
2x ATI 4670
2x ATI + Intel = 4900

But I guess that’ll change with OSX 10.9.1 and FCPX 10.1 with support for the new mac pro.

Does the ATI R9 280x run in the 2008 Mac Pro by any chance?

I haven't tested it. In theory it should be compatible since it's just a relabeled 7970. Only problem is the power supply - the 7970/280x need 1x 6-Pin and 1x 8-Pin connector (some need 2x 8-Pin) but the MacPro only has 2x 6-Pin. So you'd need an extra power supply just for the GPU.

Some people (see macrumors.com) just use a 6-Pin to 8-Pin adapter and say it runs fine, but I wouldn't want to risk frying my PSU or Logic Board.

I too would love to see if someone can get the new Radeon 280x working with OS X and FCPX....

Basically the 280x is a 7970 but newer and cheaper. The trick is getting working drivers and safe power like some do with 7970 PC Cards. (I just find it hard to pay 150 more for the 7950 mac version.)
