Installed Golden Master with my Vega 64 and Mac Pro 5,1.
8.2 SECONDS to render.
Mac Pro 4.1 -> 5.1
High Sierra 10.13 Beta (17A360a)
2 x 2,26 Ghz Xeon (will be upgraded)
64 GB RAM
500 GB Samsung 840 EVO (on ordinary SATA-port)
RADEON RX VEGA 64 - 8 GB
Apple ProRes 422
10.4 sec to render. Pretty good for a beta driver.
Unfortunately not. I have a feeling its slower. I will try the following setups this week:
1 x 280x
2 x 280x
1 x 380x
2 x 380x
1 x 290
1 x 290X
1 x 290 and 290x (in pair)
I have a shitload of graphics cards here right now so this is going to be rather interesting.
I use a splice cable that looks like this:
Since its a single processor setup and the power unit supplys 950 W there is absolutetly no problems to get anough power.

Yep. One firmware upgraded 4.1 and one native 5.1. I render 4k in real time and the 5k test is insanely fast. 9 seconds to render the Bruce X test is almost as fast (or faster) than some of the nMP model. The 7970 is insanely fast in a combination of two cards.
A very reliable and cost efficient colouter for demanding work loads.
Got two machines that show very different numbers. Even if one of them (in theory) should be much faster that the other Apples love for AMD shows very much in the result. Therefore my 12 core 3 Ghz machine is three times slower than my other machine that costs less than half the price of the 12 core.
Configs and benchmarks is here:
12 core 3.04 Ghz
48 GB RAM
1 Nividia GTX 980, 4 GB
1 Sonnet Tempo PCIe dual Samsung Evo 850 in stripe raid (total of 1 TB)
Renders in 29-32 seconds
6 core 3,46 Ghz (this is an aftermarket chip)
16 GB RAM
2 x Radeon HD 7970 (Ghz edition) (one reference Sapphire and one XFX Ghost). I have Ghost coolers on both chips.
1 Apricorn Duo PCIe with 2 BIWIN 500 GB in stripe raid
Renders in 8-10.5 seconds
It's a rather big difference between these two. In Premiere it's the other way around totally where the Nvidia GPU chrushes the AMD dual config. The Radeon setup actually even dopes better in FCP X even with just one chip mounted.
So, if you are a FPC X user always go for the (much cheaper) Radeon chips.
