10.4 sec to render. Pretty good for a beta driver.

Whoo.... that sounds really good. Holding on hope that I can get extend life of my 5,1 with a single fast card.

OK.

Installed Golden Master with my Vega 64 and Mac Pro 5,1.

8.2 SECONDS to render.

EIGHT-POINT-TWO!!!!!!

:ohmy: On a X58A Hackintosh(Custom Mac) with two 7850 GPUs. The machine can export Bruce X in a whooping 16.5 Seconds. :)

Considering, how small the investment was in this machine. :woohoo: I couldn't have asked for better performance. :side:

Looks like any decent AMD GPUs will do a phenomenal job of rendering in FCPX and Motion. :woohoo:

On a custom Mac (i7 4790k, 16GB RAM and Vega 64 LC) it takes about 33 seconds, which I think is very very slow for this card, specially when compared to other people getting 7-9 seconds.
Besides, performance in FCP in general feels so poor. Luxmark is around 23k, so the gpu is being used in other programs.
I'm running High Sierra 10.13.1, tried 10.13.2 betas but got the same performance. I could really use some help :(

Hackintosh -
CPU: i7 4790k @4GHz (stock)
GPU: GTX 970 4GB
RAM: 8 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
960 EVO nVME.
OSX: High Sierra 10.13.1

Result: 98 seconds average, i guess my bottleneck is my GPU. :( ProRes 422 5k

EDIT: I overclocked my CPU to 4.5GHz and the time went down to 30 seconds average, sometimes less... I find this a bit odd. I notice my GPU fans don't seem to ramp up when exporting...

A lot of benchmarks here seem inconsistent, not sure if some people are forgetting to turn off "Background rendering"

Just built a new editing machine...

it did it in just under 16 seconds!

6-core i7-8700K 3,7ghz Coffee Lake
Radeon RX 580 8gb
Samsung Evo 960 500gb drive (M.2)
16gb 266mhz RAM...

macOS X High Sierra 10.13.2, FCPX 10.3.4.

GeekBench score: 26.218 (single core: 5972)
CineBench; OpenGL: 146fps, CPU 1412cb

My old MacBook Pro retina 2012 did BryceX in about 70 seconds..
I'm happy! :)

Those results are interesting. My top-spec 2017 iMac 27 on macOS Sierra 10.12.6 and FCPX 10.3.4 did these numbers:

BruceX (no pre-render, fresh library, ProRes 422 output, average of 3 runs): 15.8 seconds
GeekBench 4.1.3: multi core: 20257, single core: 5795
GeekBench 4.1.3 GPU OpenCL: 115422

CineBench OpenGL: 127 fps, CPU 916cb

So your synthetic benchmarks are very good and BruceX was roughly equal to mine. If your previous main FCPX machine was a 2012 MBP, this is a huge improvement.

I'd be interested in how those numbers translate to real-world FCPX operations such as exporting to 4k H264 and importing from 4k H264 and transcoding to ProRes proxy or ProRes optimized media. Here is a 2 min 30 sec test file from a Sony A7RII camera I used, the original file is 1.8GB and can be downloaded: vimeo.com/135670345

On my 2017 iMac, I got these numbers on that 02:30 UHD 4k/25 file (background render off):

Output to UHD 4k (best performance): 1 min 4 sec
Create proxy media after import: 29 sec
Create optimized media after import: 1 min 9 sec

The similarity in BryceX is probably due to the same graphics card... I will later overclock this one, so expect some CPU improvements as well... Could also eventually switch to a Radeon Vega graphics card for further enhancements. And obviously add more ram...

However, real world improvements for me, will obviously be far less than the BryceX test suggests as my biggest bottleneck now is drive speed. My real-world projects are still on spinning (7200rpm) drives and not in raid...
And I don't have reliable bluetooth working so can't use my Apple Magic Mouse, and I realised how dependant I am on the swipe/scroll function of that when editing in FCPX!

So even though it seems like a great machine this, I would have gladly traded it for an iMac if I could have afforded...

BruceX = 15 sec

I wonder how fast the baseline macbook pro 13" 2017 would be with the 4k export...my old hackintosh took about 14min and I need to upgrade either to a new hack with one of those 6core cpus or maybe I just get a baseline macbook pro instead and later a eGPU for extra help...but I don't know how a dual core cpu would handle the 4k render...I will take a usb stick with me and try to get to an store with mbp's to test it there...thx

Was that using H.264 or ProRes?

I'd be interested in the H.264 export times.

Hi guys,

I seem to have an issue with my eGPU using Final Cut Pro X in High Sierra, which drives me crazy.

I have the following setup:
MacBook Pro 13", i7 3.5 GHz, 16 GB RAM, 1 TB SSD (2017 model w/ 4 TB3 ports)
eGPU: Sonnet eGFX Breakaway Box + Saphire AMD RX 580 NITRO+ 8GB w/ external display (as main display)
macOS: High Sierra 10.13.2
FCPX: 10.4

I am running the same benchmark (BruceX 5K), but I am far behind your scores: The fastest I had was 1 minute with the eGPU, which is even slower then with the MB internal graphic card (Intel Iris Plus 650).

Does anyone have an idea, how I can force FCPX to use the eGPU correctly and to its full potential?

Every idea is appreciated, thanks.

That's really weird. Are you sure you're using the eGPU? Can you see activity?

Yes, it's really strange.

When I start FCPX, the eGPU (AMD) is going up to 67% according to XRG, even in idle mode w/o any (pre-)rendering. Strange is, that the eGPU fans don't turn on and the eGPU is totally cool. I think the % measurement is not real.

If I start the export with BruceX 5K in FCPX, the AMD GPU and the internal Intel GPU utilizations are going up to 95%, but the eGPU AMD remains cool and fans are still off. eGPU fans are only on until I login in High Sierra.

I think, that High Sierra is somehow not able to measure the real eGPU utilization.

Any tips?

First post here.

Mac Pro 2012
12 Core 3.46 GHz
64GB RAM
Vega 64
System Drive - Evo 860 SATA
Render Drive - 960 Pro NVMe RAID

Render Time: 16.8 seconds

Probably could gain a few more seconds if the system drive was RAIDed.
