Hello @hussar,Hello again,
i'm running FCPx with
-asus rog strix vega64
and i recently changed to iMac pro1,1 from [iMac 19,1] to try and get the maximum performance outta my system
though now videoproc is showing my gfxcard as N/A
i'm wondering if i'd be better served by using a SMBIOS that is closer to my actual components?
I now the iMacpro uses X chips versus our H chips
and for FCPx arent 2 gfx cards [iGPU + PCI gpu] better for performance?
@CaseySJ i'm hoping you have a moment to check my config out?
I pretty sure everything is correct - though I'm no expert
and i followed your amazing guide to a T [huge thanks for this guide once again!]
The iMacPro1,1 definition requires us to disable the iGPU. Because the iMac Pro uses a Xeon processor, there is simply no iGPU in that chip. That’s why we must disable IGFX in BIOS and remove “framebuffer-patch-enable” from Devices —> Properties. This will result in only one GPU: the Vega 64. But you shouldn’t worry about disabling the Intel UHD 630 because Vega 64 is superior in every way. MacOS will fully use the Vega, but you should update to 10.14.5 for best results. (Your config.plist still has “framebuffer-patch-enable” so please delete that.)
