Quick question for you: how did you manage to fit the 5770 in the top slot 4? My understanding is that the 5770 is a double width gpu. Did you modify the physical bracket connection on the GPU? Or perhaps there is a single width model out there?


There is actually room for the double sized card in slot 4 as long as hard drive 2-4 are also empty. The bracket that hold the PCI cards on place is under the bracket for the slot 4 5770. Therefore it is not tightened in there but as you can see by my results, it does work.

Update:

Decided to try Send-to-Compressor one more time and for whatever reason, this time it completed.

Hi!
My hackintosh
3.3 GHz Quad-Core Intel Xeon 1230v2
16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3

BruceX results:
video_____OSX___FCPX__Codec____Result
660GT, __10.8.6 10.0.9 H264_____98 sec
XFX7950, 10.9.1 10.0.9 H264_____32sec (Waw!)
XFX7950, 10.9.1 10.1.0 H264_____Could not export Yet (Error)
XFX7950, 10.9.1 10.0.9 ProResHQ 27.5 sec
XFX7950, 10.9.1 10.1.0 ProResHQ 30.5 sec (strange, but with Higher bitrate! than in 0.9)

Geekbench 3 32bit:
12044 on OSX 10.8.6
10603 on OSX 10.9.1 (strange, it should be higher than in 10.8)

Next gonna test with both cards together in FCPX 10.1.0.

Hope this will help somebody, cause I was looking for info like this when building my hackintosh earlier.

MacPro 2006 1,1
12GB RAM
Internal SATA 7200RPM 1tb Drive
Radeon 5770 1GB VRAM
8 core 2.66

BruceX on FCPX 10.1 and 10.9.1 (ProRes) -- 1 min 31 seconds (or 91 seconds)[/quote]

Just got a brand new 2013 iMac. 32GB Ram, 4GB Video card and the results are:

BruceX on FCPX 10.1 and 10.9.1 (ProRes) ---1 minute 31 seconds (or 91 seconds).

Yes that is right a 2006 MacPro exports at the same speed as a 2013 iMac. I must attribute this to the fact that the MacPro has an ATI GPU, while the iMac has Nvidia. Plus, it appears that BruceX at some point simply becomes a test of GPU power. Because as I showed also when the 2006 MacPro has 2 7550's, it completes BruceX is just 53 seconds.

I can tell you however in real world use the iMac completely outshines the 2006 MacPro.

how can I figure out how many lanes are being used by my 5770? At home I have a 2010 Mac Pro (5,1) and I also use a CalDigit RAID Controller card, so I'm wondering if that means I'm running out of lanes regardless of if I can physically squeeze another ATI Radeon 5770 card into my Mac Pro - what do you guys think?

Take a look at this:

support.apple.com/kb/ht2838

"Mac Pro (Early 2009), Mac Pro (Mid 2010), and Mac Pro (Mid 2012)

The Mac Pro (Early 2009), Mac Pro (Mid 2010), and Mac Pro (Mid 2012) computers implement PCI Express revision 2.0 for all four slots. Slots 1 and 2 are x16 slots, and slots 3 and 4 are x4 slots. As with the Mac Pro (Early 2008), placing a revision 1 card in a revision 2.0 slot works and results in a revision 1 link."


Also take a look at the DaVinci Resolve configuration guide for multiple GPUs:

thanks t! Very helpful link you sent! It basically shows that 2009 - 2012 Mac Pro has four PCIe slots, and slot1 and 2 are hard set to x16 while slot 3 and 4 are x4. In my 2010 Mac Pro 2.8Ghz quad core, I have my ATI 5770 in slot 1 and my CalDigit RAID Controller card in slot 3. I guess the next step is to see if I can physically place another ATI 5770 in slot 2.

If I am understanding the white paper you kindly shared, I think it is saying that my 5,1 Mac Pro can give 16 lanes to both slot 1 and slot 2? I have a single Aux connection left, (my 5770 is using Aux power #2 and Aux power #1 us still available.

I really appreciate your help - I edit day in and day out but I am not hardware savvy.

So I ran it again after getting 78 seconds on my original test.

MId-2011 iMac 27"
3.4 Ghz I7
32 GB RAM
AMD Radeon HD 6970M 1 GB
OS 10.8.5 >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> updated to OS 10.9.1 for this test
Promise R4

Also updated from FCP X 10.0.9 to 10.1 for this test

The result was 45 seconds. Nice improvement!

In what way? does this test translate back into 1080p rendering times? or is it just helpful when rendering crazy high resolutions?

would you recommend a r9 280x card for super fast 1080p rendering? how long would it take to render 1h of 1080p material to mp4/h.264?

But what I actually wanted to say first is, thanks to all of you. I was hoping somebody would look into this. It sounds like really good news to me.

Does anybody know why nvidia cards are so much slower in opencl performance?

Similar situation here. I have the following:

iMac Late 2009
3.06 Intel Core 2 Duo
12 GB 1067 DDR 3 Ram
ATI Radion HD 4670 with 256 MB
OS 10.9.1

All that receive are "Test Failed" results. I think I've stretched the video processing life of this machine just a bit too long. I'm a retired 'still' photographer, Photoshop CS6 runs fine - obviously much different requirements to manage large file size video transcoding.

I"m totally perplexed by my results. Looks like my 2013 iMac is slower than a 2011.

2013 iMac 27"
3.5 Ghz i7
32 GB Ram
NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M 4096 MB
OS 10.9.1
Internal Fusion Drive (but shouldn't matter because the file is only 72MB)

Consistently 1 minute 23 seconds (or 83 seconds).

Any thoughts?

I'll do some tests over the next few days to compare and report back.

I ran the test but can't export the file to H264 as I keep getting error. I exported the file as ProRes LT file.

I got 61 seconds.

My machine is the 2010 Mac Pro Quad-Core 2.8 w/ 16GB RAM, SINGLE ATI 5770 GPU, Running Mavericks and FCPX 10.1

Did I do something "wrong" here??? :huh:

It seems a little too quick compare to others results

If I remember correctly you can only do prores at the moment in 10.1.

61 secs seem pretty good but again it's ProRes LT so there's not as much compression involved as export in H.264...

NVIDIA GeForce GT 120 512 MB graphics
14 GB Ram
FCPX 10.1
export to Pro-Res 4:4:4:4

391 seconds. Ouch!

:blink:

export to Pro-Res RT

391 seconds. Identical.
