I'd also be interested in any benchmark as well.

I do agree that the nVidia cards have come on in leaps and bounds over the last year though I haven't seen any benchmarks. The last time I looked the nVidia Titans were pretty close to an AMD 280X for FCPX. The Titans were far superior for many other non FCPX activities. I can't recall if this was for dual 280X or a single 280X. I suspect dual 280X cards :)

I have no doubt a GTX 690 is nippy, its difficult to define 'nippy' so its difficult to say if its the same speed, half the speed or twice the speed.

Post the BruceX benchmark and lets see how it does for a contrived and fairly pointless activity :) It only takes 10-15 mins to do the lot.

Yep, that's with the GTX 690, which technically has dual GPUs on the single card - albeit not all apps recognize it. Would be nice if there were some means for FCPX to recognize that.
Any way to check of the Adobe Apps recognize it - any particular benchmarks for After Effects, Premiere, or Photoshop?

Dear Rob,

A month ago i finished my first Hackingtosh with your support. The video and audio were problematic. Everything is working right now and Nvidia Web is running smooth.

This is my hardware build :

Gigabyte GA-Z170-HD3P
Intel Core I7 6700K
32GB Kingston DDR4 HyperX
Gigabyte GTX 960 G1 Gaming (4GB)
TpLink Archer Wifi
2x Samsung EVO 750 SSD.

Just installed Final Cut Pro to open some 4K Video. When I start final cut the whole system is freezing for a while. I cannot move the mouse pointer and the video performance is very poor and stuttering. What can I do about that ?

I need help :)

You have a different motherboard, different CPU, different memory and different GPU to me :) This thread is about the Z97X MB and FCPX.

Also there's no indication of which OS X or which version of FCPX.

Have you looked at the console? What errors are you getting? Is your memory working correctly? There are so many things that could be wrong here and it's impossible to even hazard a guess without more information. Simply saying it doesn't work very well is meaningless.

I would suspect the GPU's are the issue but I'm wholly AMD based for graphics but thats just a random guess as many people have FCPX working on these boards.
