@Ni6htWalker I'm thinking of doubling my current Sapphire 7970 Dual-X.
What are you getting for a Bruce-X with both cards? What size is your PSU? Thanks.
What version of FCP are you using ?This is a good Question:
On the Output, driven by the HD530, i see some flickering artifacts on the upper left, which is a known bug for the HD 530 running on Sierra. These artefakts aren't available on the output from the RX 460. I think each gpu renders it's own output.
If i use final cut/photoshop I can see that the RX 460 ist used for gpu acceleration (iStat), which is the only thing I care about. I think it doesn't matter which gpu renders the user interface/which one is used for the output if the RX460 is used for the use cases I bought it for(GPU acceleration).
After wake/sleep the HD 530 isn't active any more. In this case the RX460 must be used.
It's an AMD card, but a very slow one.
What version of FCP are you using ?
Have you run Bruces benchmark ? if so, what time did you get ?
I ask because I am weighing up between 460 or the older 280x
If I understand this correctly, 1st gen GCN GPUs like the 7970 & 280X are not affected by the "boot to black screen bug" and a system with a 1st gen card can be booted with pre-OS video output without setting iGPU to primary? Is the reason for setting iGPU to primary for these cards just to avoid the sleep/wake issue
