  1. 64GB support on the Skylake desktop has been...

    64GB support on the Skylake desktop has been hinted at and nothing confirmed. It's limited to 32GB as far as I can tell unless Intel slipped support in late and none of the OEMs or motherboard...

    The next iteration of high-end desktop/workstation chips with more than 4 cores -- i.e.: successor to the current X99 platform, is probably about a year away. And the same goes for the next...

    Are you working at 120fps? That's a big deal if you are, that's the same as four of those 4KHD streams playing back at 30fps. If you shot it at 120fps, that's irrelevant, and we would then want to...

    Almost makes me wish I coughed up the $10K premium to get the forged body a bit sooner.... Then again, I've been so busy lately with other things my Dragon seems to be collecting dust. :(

    Can't...

    This is definitely not a GPU issue. I would say it needs some digging into to figure out just what the problem is for sure. But performance issues with Hackintosh systems are pretty common as OS X...

    Took me a couple days to get an official answer, but yeah it seems the latest release or two of the Rampage V Extreme BIOS is updated to support the Dual card. :) Still no joy on the X99 Deluxe or...
  7. I've run some comparative tests with several of...

    I've run some comparative tests with several of my own projects on this system and on others. And yes, some of the obligatory benchmarks for RC-X transcodes, storage I/O, etc.. I don't have those...
  8. Are you sure it fully works with the dual card? ...

    Are you sure it fully works with the dual card? Seriously, it's not supported, not unless they quietly slipped in support for it with the last BIOS update on the Rampage V Extreme -- and I suppose...

    Wake from sleep can occasionally be an issue with all TB devices when using the optical TB cables, proper drivers or not. :/ It really becomes an issue of the TB device maintaining itself in a...
  10. You'll never get the Thunderbolt EX/II Dual card...

    You'll never get the Thunderbolt EX/II Dual card to work -- the X99 boards do not currently support it! You must use the single-port EX/II card. ASUS is supposedly going to address this issue at...

    Hmm.... OK. Two sides to every story. You're both coming off as completely unprofessional here. FWIW, Stephen, I can see why Jeremy is pissed, even based on your own account. Jeremy, I think you...

    Correct. I would be concerned about the beep on shut-down. Should just be the start-up beep[s] to indicate the RAID system is active and normal.
  13. The internal Mac Pro bays are 3Gbps SATA (or SAS...

    The internal Mac Pro bays are 3Gbps SATA (or SAS with the Apple RAID Card). So that means about 275MB/s top speed for each internal bay, all 4 trays as well as the two 5.25" optical bays. And the...
  14. If you have an RRX card in the mix, I wouldn't...

    If you have an RRX card in the mix, I wouldn't mess with the GPU upgrade. RRX accelerates R3D workflows more than any GPU setup you can install in that Mac tower.

    Adobe only uses multiple GPUs for a few things -- some render operations in Premiere, for example. Playback is single-GPU only. Depending on your other apps used, you may or may not see real...

    Your best bet is to talk with MacVidCards. The 980 TI should be a nice companion to the old Mac towers -- provided you have at least 8 cores in there at 2.6GHz+ and enough RAM to drive the thing. ...

    I think computer hardware in general is somewhat cryptic as to which is the latest and greatest. Sure, higher model numbers usually represent the newer offerings, but numbers don't mean much to...

    The 31" LG is nice, IMO, the pixels are a bit larger than I would like for that resolution, given the current trend of how resolution is being used. I do highly recommend the monitor though. While...

    These players are great for driving 4K displays and signage -- trade shows, retail spaces, etc.. That's what they're designed for. Too bad some of the more directly functional players are not as up...
  20. Er... That's because most vendors are...

    Er... That's because most vendors are price-gouging on it since not many carry them in stock for some weird reason. NewEgg has a few "open box" ones, or did recently, for under $500 and they're a...

    Have to agree with Jarek. Most USB hubs are crap and I really don't have any recommendations. The advice of larger power supplies is almost always bogus -- most USB hubs under-power or incorrectly...
  22. This is correct, these are additional components...

    This is correct, these are additional components that are not directly required as part of the system build. Not everyone coming into this will want or need that sort of RAID storage, the internal...

    You won't want the HC version of the cards with the C70 case. There just isn't enough room for a proper reservoir and liquid radiator system along with this motherboard in this case. Not to mention...

    Windows 10 is shaping up nice. ;)

    That said, I would recommend 8.1 Pro 64bit right now. I do like Windows 7 a bit more for some minor reasons, but 8.1 is the overall better OS. You may or...

    If the Quadro is truly beneficial to you. But be sure to investigate that before you spend the extra money.
