Currently researching components to build an audio/video production rig to move on from my 2014 15" rMBP.
An Apollo Twin is going to be utilized, so Thunderbolt support is a must.
CPU: Intel Core i7-6700K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor
CPU Cooler: Corsair H60 54.0 CFM Liquid...
Building a dual-boot Mac/PC Hackintosh. Windows side for gaming, Mac side for video editing in FCPX.
For graphics cards, multiple questions:
1. Will dual AMD 5570s really outperform a GTX 980ti in FCPX due to open CL compatibility? If so, by what margin? Enough to really notice?
I haven't been able to find evidence of this anywhere else, but the Sierra update seems to have brought on some slight issues with the 280X graphics card. It worked like a dream in El Capitan.
I primarily use it for OpenCL rendering performance with Final Cut and a few others. Ever since the...
im planning to change me x99 platform to a z170.
Also a gpu change buth not quite sure i go for amd or nvidia.
Want to edit 4K footage with fcpx.
Also needs to run photo editing software like ptgui, photoshop, lightroom, etc
I am using 3 full HD monitors and going to buy a 4th uhd monitor.
i am looking for a Lenovo Y50-70
i know it wont handle 4k native i would use a proxy.
but im seeing multiple versions of cpu and gpu
option1: i5/ 8GB / 256GB SSD / 15.6" FHD / Geforce GTX960M 2GB
option2: i7/16GB/256GB SSD / 15.6" FHD or UHD / NVIDIA GeForce GTX 860M 4GB
option3: mac mini ...
Let me start this out by saying if you are building a Hackintosh and want it to "just work" then get an Intel Skylake LGA 1151 based motherboard/processor. It is supported by macOS and will make the whole process easier. If you are crazy like I was and don't mind a lot of tinkering and redoing...
First of all...
Merry Christmas! :)
I want to replace my motherboard, CPU and RAM, but I want to keep my 2 x ATI HD5770 (Gigabyte "Batman" cooler model).
Config should look like this:
i7-6700k (instead Q9550)
Gigabyte GA-Z170-GAMING K3-EU (instead GA-EP45-UD3LR)
16GB DDR4 (instead 8GB...
G'day all and Merry Christmas.
As you can see in my specs I have an i5 4670k LGA1150 Haswell. I would like my FCPX to render a little faster (a lot faster if possible).
FCPX is just about the only thing I use the Hack for hence the pair of GPUs I chose.
Would I benefit greatly from changing...
I've finally convinced my current employer to throw down the money for a new workstation. As I'm spending someone else's money, I'm really trying to be smart about it. I put together a parts list with two friends, one of the best 3D artists I know, and a high-end IT manager, but I'm not...
Hey guys, I'm about to make this purchase so I wanted to see what you guys think, and if I'm going to run into any pitfalls. I've included links so you can take a look at the parts too. This is my first time, pushed into it because I just can't handle the current pricing Apple has going on, but...
I'm from the shallow end of the tech gene pool and looking for advice on upgrading my second Hackintosh, a GA-Z97X-UD5H/i7-4790k/GTX-760 I've been using for FCPX video editing for two years. It's starting to glitch (occasional slowness, random freezes) and I need to upgrade from Yosemite to...
I am making a Hackintosh for mostly video editing in fcpx and some photo editing in photoshop and lightroom. Heres the list of parts I was thinking:
cpu: Intel Core i7-4790K
motherboard: Z170M Mortar
gpu: XFX RADEON RX 480 8GB
ram: Corsair Vengeance LPX 16GB DDR4 3000 C15
ssd: Samsung 850 EVO...
Check my specs in the spec section, I have made sure it's up to date although I am now running OSX El Cap.
I use my Hack for FCPX and not much else so I don't think I want the aggravation of updating to Sierra.
My Hack seems to output final projects to either H.264 or ProRes at a...
I'd like to get a 4K monitor for photo and video work. Probably the LG 31MU97. I need acceleration in Sierra/FCPX, but my editing needs are modest, as I'll only be working with 1080p footage with minimal VFX.
What's the best GPU to drive a 4K display in Sierra?
I've read the 280x is limited to...
first of all thank you for patient Im a noob :)
I have read whole forum, and I have learned many things.. thanks to members.
Im building hackintosh(El Capitan or Sierra) for FcpX and Davinci resolve, but FcpX is the goal :)
I will try to get a working hackintosh from a gold builds from...
Here is a video of the issue. My openCL score is 12666.
I got a hackintosh for Final Cut Pro X so it not working perfectly is really a pain for me.
If this a known problem? what can i do?
PS: my BruceX score is around 9 seconds... or am i doing the render incorrectly.
I have been searching a lot for best card for FcpX (open CL) and after a lot of searching I didn't find :)
My main concern is compatibility with hackintosh El Capitan, Im hoping that something will know :)
What are your suggestions?
guys.. Im lost in here :)
Can you pls point me to where to find or what you recommend for 4K video editing in FcpX OS X El Capitan.
Is there any build of users who have build El Capitan for video editing in FcpX.
I would like to have as much as possible clean install :)
thanks for the your...
I'm looking at building a full tower Atx x99 (Asus Deluxe 2) running an i7 5820k with at least 64gb of ram. Dual booting OS X/win on separate SSD's. Primary use will be for fcpx/iMovie. On the windows side, work stuff and some gaming.
From the options of GPU's listed, which would you choose...
