    Matrox CompressHD

    Hey guys, I'm thinking (long-term, maybe in the next 2-3 months) about adding a Matrox CompressHD card into my editing build. I've done a bunch of searching, but can't seem to find much information on using this card in a hack. The card: http://www.matrox.com/video/en/products/compresshd/...

    Slugnet's Video Editor - GA-Z77X-UD5H, i7-3770k, Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti

    I am in the midst of a major editing project right now, so my rig and time are both mission critical for the time being. I will apply the 10.8.3 update sometime in the next couple of weeks, but will not be able to do so until I get this project into solid footing and I have time to troubleshoot...

    Slugnet's Video Editor - GA-Z77X-UD5H, i7-3770k, Gigabyte GeForce GTX 660 Ti

    Yes, quite doable, and already covered earlier in this thread: http://www.tonymacx86.com/golden-builds/70530-slugnets-video-editor-ga-z77x-ud5h-i7-3770k-gigabyte-geforce-gtx-660-ti-5.html#post450917 Not sure which port off the top of my head, and I'm in the middle of several projects right...

    First off, updating your Bios does several things. First, and most important, earlier versions of the Bios had issues with this board, and updating fixes several of those issues. Second, updating the Bios fixes or improves, or adds new, features on the board. For instance, the F6 (and later)...

    I do most of my work in FCP7 still. FCPX has not caught up to the features of 7. So yes, I've been using it quite extensively. It works great, as it is basically CPU dependent. Fast renders, super stable. I can't recommend enough for FCP7 work.

    The 660 Ti Thread: Questions and Answers Here!

    Hi guys, been reading through this thread, sorry it has taken a while for me to jump in. I've gone through and read through all of the posts, and thought I'd test to see if my build/660 Ti was having any of the issues you are describing. First, I've never seen any of the errors described in...

    HAckintosh : VFX + Color grading pro with thunderbolt

    This particular card is even newer than the 660 ti, so even less is known about it. The things I know are (a) it wasn't available when I was purchasing for my system and (b) it is less powerful than the ti. It has 960 CUDA cores, and as an overall card is slightly less powerful, which I think...

    Looking for a Video Editing build

    The big difference for video editing is the amount of CUDA cores on your video card. For comparison, the GTX 670 and the GTX 660ti both have 1344 CUDA cores, while the GT 640 only has 384. The 560 ti also has 384, while the high end of the 5xx series, the 590 has 1024. There are other factors at...

    The worst hiccup for me was getting OpenCL working correctly. It took me quite a while to get it working through the process I outline in my original post. Once I got that working, everything else graphically started working. But I spent at least two or three days banging against this build in...
