Please ask a friend or co-worker to translate from your native language to English. I cannot understand your post.

I stand corrected then! Did you get headless mode working on OC or Clover? I'd try iMac19,1 on my machine if there's an easy way

UPDATE: Wait no I tested it just now: on iMac19,1 with iGPU enabled and headless mode, I get 38 seconds, tested it twice. Reran with iMacPro1,1 w/o iGPU and I get 34 seconds. This is strange....

Do you have Hackintool to conform if your hardware encoding is fully supported? I also ran and posted my HEVC result. Give it a go and see what kind of performance you get in Resolve.

I see, thanks for the test

Can you do a comparison between iMac 19,1 and iMacPro 1,1 with the same software since we are trying to figure out which SMBIOS configuration yields the fastest encoding result?

As for my result above, according to the monitor report, AME is fulling utilizing my RX 580 on both 19,1 and 1,1. This was the setting i had used.

HEVC encoding in FCPX (Again, note that I am using RX 580)
iMac 19,1 - 46 sec
iMacPro 1,1 - 49 sec

This has been a very interesting experiment. I changed my SMBIOS to iMacPro1,1 and here is what I am getting.

iMacPro1,1
H.264 - 32s in FCPX
HEVC - 50s in FCPX
H.264 - 35s in Davinci Resolve
HEVC - 48s in Davinci Resolve

Now what is baffling me is the result I got when I went back to iMac19,1 and emptied the render cache, reran the test.
iMac19,1
H.264 - 46 in FCPX
HEVC - 50s in FCPX
H.264 - 45s in Davinci Resolve
HEVC - 50s in Davinci Resolve

Somehow I was not able to reproduce the time I was getting this morning. My only guess is that somehow the morning run had background render on, or I must have set the frame rate wrong. Ran several times and this is pretty much the result I got. What is also puzzling is my H.264 took longer while HEVC shorter time to export than the last test I ran earlier this after. I have to see what kind of result hylkepylke will get with HEVC decoding, but seems like there is not a huge difference in HEVC, but in H.264, the result is not flopped.
