I need you advice regarding graphics for fcpx editing.
what would you recommend?
Radeon VII or two Vega 56 cards?
thank you

You might be able to get more power from the two Vega 56 with tuning and such. But it would be easier to just use the VII.

@leobar021, why not try two Vega 64's instead of two Vega 56's. I would wait for the RX 5700XT to gain macOS support and then get one or two of those.
Same here. Just wait for Catalina release and start with NAVI RX 5700 or 5700 XT.

hm I don't know anymore
I have two options now
2x Vega 56 or 2x Vega 64
It is for fcpx mainly!
I was reading on the forum that there isn't much difference regarding performance in fcpx between those cards...
What do you think... help ;)

the edit and render time is not that great on mac while running a dual gpu, if you consider value for $ spend so a vega64 Saphhire/Asus would be fine for a 4k timeline file and considering the speculation on radeon VII that production might stop so vega64 is the best until unless you can wait for the new Navi support but I believe that would be 6months atleast or even more

would you recommend dual Vega 64 or???
thanks

Sounds like he is tell you that dual GPU really is not the way to go on a Mac. You could get a VII or just get a Vega 64.
