    AMD already won the contract for the new macs. On the new macs there will be a Polaris 10 and a Polaris 11 card.
    It's also very difficult to have support nowadays because FCPX is optimized for OpenCL and Nvidia is CUDA (= less performance on fcpx)

    I think Apple is moving to Metal for FCPX. I don't know of FCPX 10.3 switched to Metal yet.

    But usually AMD = OpenCL better performance, nVidia = Better CUDA performance but still supports OpenCL.

    With a single 980Ti, FCPX works perfect. But with a second one it stutters. I don't use FCPX anyway, just fyi.

    I have the same issue...wonder if we just have to wait a little bit longer for them to release the appropriate driver..

    I Am using XFX Rx 480 on my hackintosh and FCPX running like a charm. The only problem is not work with FCPX lastest version. I using FCPX 10.2.3.

    With every update, I have more regret for getting GTX 1070 over 980ti. When I was buying my pc, I could get them at nearly the same price, but someone convinced me that 1070 is better and the web driver will eventually support it. Now I have a $500 gpu which isn't doing anything while booted to hackintosh.

    The other problem is that the 980ti's (and other 9XX cards) are getting harder and harder to find.
