    Radeon VII +UHD630 = Random Freezes, Moving Cursor, Slowdown - 10.14.4 / 5

    So far so good. 2 days and no issues. Longest no-hang streak with Radeon VII :) I had IGPU disabled, so enabling that was probably a big part of it. Thanks a lot for that info.

    Radeon VII +UHD630 = Random Freezes, Moving Cursor, Slowdown - 10.14.4 / 5

    Same nightmare here. Hangs, mouse moves, but everything else is frozen. Almost identical system to yours. The funny thing is, it ONLY hangs when using 2 finance programs, which are both heavy JAVA/GPU. No overheating either. I run LuxMark stress for hours, no issues, tons of other programs...

    128GB RAM and 16 cores / 32 threads X9DAI

    @tibbon, They might be waiting to release the next gen stuff end of year or next year. Who really knows why. Only Apple knows. Keep in mind, there is no turbo boost functioning yet. I hope there is some sort of trick or update soon. Sucks without turbo. Imagine 16 cores adding 1GHz per core...

    Seriously. This Mac Pro delay sucks. I might get Lion back on this thing and just use it without the turbo boost. Other issue is, the GTX 690 cards don't work in Mac.

    External HDD makes scratchy noises under Lion OS

    You probably don't have the problem I'm thinking of, but it's worth mentioning. Is it an external drive that is being powered by the computer's USB? Sometimes I've had problems where the USB power isn't enough and you get that type of sound. When I add the power supply to the external drive...

    Mostly using it with Adobe CS6 Premiere editing RED 5K footage. The combination of the system and software is amazing, as far as speed goes.

    It was ROCK SOLID running MacOS, but not as solid with win7.

    With a pair of E5-2690's, CineBench CPU render gets 25.0 (win 7) With the GTX 690 it's around 50 FPS.

    thanks archelon. It's only using the cpu's built in turbo boost feature to go above the main clock speed of 2900 MHz. Not really overclocked in the traditional way. Neither supermicro or the actual chip support overclocking. Hopefully we can get the turbo feature working, which will take the...

    emergent, I've been testing X9DAi, but recently found out the board had to be replaced and had a backup X9DRi board. Things run smoothly on that one, but it's far from a desktop board. No audio and really wide board. Supermicro builds really reliable boards, so this was rare. I don't know if I'd...

    quicktime error (-101) won't paly h264, mp4

    I'm using a board with no audio device built in. So I get that quicktime error (-101), general quicktime and adobe premiere error. I guess some software doesn't work without actual audio. If would be cool to have a fake audio device loaded to trick the OS.

    thanks to celstark, I got the 30,000 GB on OS X. I switched motherboards. But he has the same board. I'll put the same drive in the old board and see if it drops back to 13,000. celstark, do you get the same GB result with EIST enabled and disabled? Or 27K without and 30K with? edit: all...

    So I just ran the Linux test, CentOS 6.0 latest kernel 2.6.32-220.13.1.el6.x86_64 Result was 31,000. http://browse.geekbench.ca/geekbench2/647881 Geekbench User Hydra35 got 35,000 with a 48 core Opteron. (linux 64-bit) 45,000 with a 40 core Intel. (linux 64-bit) So my result seems to be...

    I have a feeling the SR-X will work better than this X9DAi. But since all these test results are fast in Windows, I'm guessing it's just a MacOS kernel issue.

    with an adobe premiere CS6 encode, it sits at 3300.06 for the entire render. So I guess it bursts all the cores to 3.3GHz max. Not even up or down by .01 MHz.
