Hey sorry for the delay, now that I have Thunderbolt devices back (in one slot at least) I can get to some footage.
I ran Geekbench 5 and it looks like Metal came out right around the average for this card (55000), but Open CL only came out around 50000, compared to the Open CL Benchmarks on the site of around 68000. I'm not sure why mine is so low.
Overall I feel the WX 8200 is solid. I haven't noticed any serious glitches or lagging. I should point out I'm new to hacking and when I was trying Clover I had a lot of black screen issues that I suspected were GPU related. Now that I'm using Opencore the only black screen issue is trying to use 2 Titan Ridges (the board only supports 1). I'm not even sure that's a GPU issue.
Regarding footage, I can play 4k ArriRaw 23.98 no problem, Red 8K 6:1, and H.264 work too. For editing software I only use Resolve really, so I wouldn't be much help with Premiere. I know you said you're sticking to the 5700XT but let me know if there are any specific tests you need in Resolve.
Too bad to hear the Radeon VII didn't work well with Resolve- that's one I've been considering.
Thanks a lot dithaack for sharing the info!
It's interesting, I was just curious what a pro graphic card can bring to the table to justify the price.
I think for Davinci R VII would perform good apart from h264, h265 footage. It's a common driver issue that gives you artefacts on the playback. Prores, R3D & Arri Raw, Blackmagic Raw should perform good but still it's a pro version of vega 56. I would suggest maybe wait for the RDNA2 card coming this year. That one should compete with the 2080ti and above, will be a real powerful card. Also there's WWDC approaching later this month so they should reveal what' new on their table for 10.16 OS.
If curious, having the 5700XT (50 Anniversary) has it's Geekbech results, scoring a bit above the the WX 8200. Testing R3D footage samples in 8k from their website, they all hit real time playback as well as 4k ArriRaw. It's getting there $ - power. There is a downside tho, the are some lags appearing that some got corrected, for example playing a youtube moving the pointer it would lag(on chrome only). I recently switched from MacPro 7,1 to iMacPro 1,1 smbios and that problem got fixed. There is another lag still there when for example the screensaver comes on and having to prompt the password, there is a lag there. I'm not sure how that can be fixed. Apart from that so far everything runs smooth.
I suppose if you get the new RDNA2 with the current WX 8200 you will have loads of horse power in terms of GPU for DIT-ing anything
