I just got two MSI R9 280X 3GB. I'll put these to test on my next build but I'm curios why is that so @aunaste.

btw, what processor you were using for the test? i7 3770K?

used Sapphire R9-280x, but one fan doesn't work and the other ones bearings are failing. Think i need to return this POS. Who knows how abused it is.
OSX Sierra 10.12

Bruce X to ProRes422 avg of 3: 18.4sec

Wish a modern AMD Card would work as well, really annoying having to spend Euro 300 for a new in box card thats 2 years old... if you can find one.

Hi, Rudyo!
I'm planning to buy (today) almost the same configuration, except for the GPUs.
Do you have the Brucex results without the GPUs (using internal graphics)? Or... anyone? :)

Don't know if I can ask here, was the hackintoshing process too hard or things worked out easily with less workarounds?
I'm new into the hackintosh world and I work a lot with fcpx with videos from 5 to 50min with few transitions (for youtube).
I'm wondering if the AMD will be absolutely needed right now or not.

Thanks!

RX480 works. I now use it with colorfinale.
With same setup except overclocked CPU (4.7ghz), I get 13-14 seconds in bruce x.

Wow, R9 390, in El-cap 8.3sec,

I ordered 980ti, so I will compare this in Same OSX and I will go to Sierra for testing again.

I heard Sierra will slower than El Cap, but I will see.

Thanks!!

So what score did you get with the 980ti? I am thinking of buying one as it'll be fast in davinci resolve and hope it'll still be fairly fast in FCPX.
