Not bad. I don't think any Mac Mini except the newest one could do better.FWIW, I just ran BruceX on my H61N-USB3 - 3570K i5 with 8GB RAM and HD4000 @ 1536MB and got 122 seconds. That's not bad, right, considering NO discrete GPU?
Hi how is your 4k timeline editing experience in FCPX. I have a single r9 280x right now and I need something to help me with multicam videos (at least 2 4k angles) do you think a 2nd 280X will do it or do I need to buy a newer card like a vega 64 or dual rx 580... I could get two rx 580 for about 260,- euro or a vega 64 for 350,- Euro (but most of them seem to be quite noisy). Thanks!A pair of 5770 cards work very well, but they are old, oldish
The AMD 280X cards *should* work fine. I ran a pair of them on a Z87X MB and had fantastic performance, I moved to a Z97X MB and still have the dual 280X cards which work perfectly well. A single 280X card is still a very good card for use with FCP X.
I run Lightroom and Photoshop as well with no issues, we have around 70,000 photos and flick between them with no problems.
eBay has them for approx £85, check carefully which 280X card you buy as the MSI ones are a little tricky. The Sapphire ones tend to work out of the box.
The only downside I have with the AMD cards is that when I boot into Windows 10, BF1 and BF4 aren't top notch graphics
i too would like to know, i have 2 280x running and no trouble running 4k 30fps files but lags badly running 4k 60fps files have to proxy them.Hi how is your 4k timeline editing experience in FCPX.

@John V How's your experience been with the 280X?
I also just purchased a Sapphire Radeon PULSE RX 580 8GB but it has had a bunch of glitchy issues in FCPX which is the reason for my Hackintosh. I have been running a pair of Sapphire 7970s but since upgrading to Sierra, they have not been as smooth - system crashes.
I had read that the RX 580 should be OOB for 10.12.6 and 10.13.x (@Stork), but it's just not working out that way.
Are you running FCPX 10.4? What version of Mac OS are you running?

Yikes! Rending time ave: 168 seconds
My guess the reason for the slow time is the video card. I'm running dual monitors from the card, I'm sure that doesn't help.
