Seems to be no change; no sleep and shutdown issues, although otherwise functional with fakeID.Still no luck for r9 390 fully working?
Should work OOB, but without sleep and with shutdown issues.
Alright, thanks for the reply, it helps alot. Tried both using DVI and DP to DVI through active converter, same thing. Guess I'll just have to Google it a bit, do you happen to know if framebuffers are the same in El Capitan and Yosemite? I Tried the one I had already patched in El Capitan and this was the outcome.Yosemite has Hawaii drivers, but they're quite "beta", like their El Capitan equivalents: Works for some, doesn't work for others.
If I recall correctly, 10.10.4 or 10.10.5 broke DisplayPort support when using InjectAti=False. I'd try to use a different connection and/or make a patched framebuffer.
A single R9 280 will do you fine, I think crossfire support in Mac OS is next to none, but running dual GPU's gives you double performance in some applications (non-crossfire) so you should check that out. Max resolution for DVI is 2560x1600 while HDMI and DisplayPort can both do 4K. You can get a DVI to HDMI cable/converter and be set with one card, but if you have two cards you can also use one HDMI port on each.Sorry if this is slightly off topic but it is definitely about AMD cards; I am a total Noob!
I wanted a Mac Pro purely for Video Editing using FCPX but the spec I want is over £5k and that's not going to happen; so I've been buying one part a week and I'm nearly there, I've got to the graphics card!
I was always going to buy Nvidia, but Ieezee at the very start of this thread has thrown me totally by saying that he went down this route only to find a cheaper HD7950 was ballistic in FCPX compared to his brand new GTX 980??
Being a Noob I need a total OOB solution with no messing for running FCPX. It seems to me Florians solution would be R9 280 to achieve this; but Ieezee is editing 4K video but yet the max resolution on the 280 is quoted as 2580 x 1600 so how does that work? As a noob this is hard for me to understand?
I have both a 1920 x 1070 monitor and a 4K monitor and they both ONLY have HDMI which is also an issue as the AMDs seem to only have 1 x HDMI out whereas the new GTX have 2 x HDMI?
Also, could I crossfire 2 x 280's and would this also allow me to use both HDMIs?
I still can't work out why the graphics card is doing anything else but process the image on a monitor and had previously thought that the CPU/mem/Hard disk was doing all the hard work in processing an FCPX edit - only from reading here have I sussed out this may not be the case!
All these issues over buying a graphics card, so sorry for asking, any help appreciated.
Really appreciate the reply hreggi89 as this will simply save me buying a card that I just do not want or need.A single R9 280 will do you fine, I think crossfire support in Mac OS is next to none, but running dual GPU's gives you double performance in some applications (non-crossfire) so you should check that out. Max resolution for DVI is 2560x1600 while HDMI and DisplayPort can both do 4K. You can get a DVI to HDMI.
Check out the link below, Asus 280x states max 4K. You can do 4K at 60HZ using HDMI 2.0, 1.4 does 4K at 30HZ. I don't know however what HDMI version is included in the following graphics card or any r9 280 for that matter, so research that further to make sure before you purchase. If they only have HDMI 1.4 or lower you can get an active DisplayPort to HDMI converter for a few dollars that should to 4K @ 60HZ.Really appreciate the reply hreggi89 as this will simply save me buying a card that I just do not want or need.
Not about to doubt you, but I just looked at an MSI R9 280X and yet again it states max res 2560 x 1600?i know you say this is DVI but surely they would mention that "if you use HDMI you can get 4K", surely a missed selling point opportunity if this is the case?
