    This would be nice to test on the new Mac Pro:

    We ordered a few 12-Cores and hoping to have them in by Feb.
    For my config I went with the RADEON VEGA II as well as the Promise 8TB Enclosure.
    RAM Im picking up third-party.
    Apple tax a bit much for my taste.

    I have the 16cores / 96gb / Vega II

    AE rendering is a little faster than my 10Cores iMac Pro (rendering an older project I had iMac Pro: 6min 9sec and MacPro: 5min 55sec) AE is not multi core optimized. You won't gain much from using a Mac Pro with AE. Adobe is lagging.

    Here are quick tests using Dragon 6K footage in PP and REsolve:

    Premiere is stuttering badly at "full" playback using 6K 5:1 footage. It Plays like butter at 1/2. This is using Metal.

    Resolve plays 6K 5:1 full debayer at 21fps in a 4K timeline. "Half res Good" Debayer plays RT in 4K timeline. 6K 5:1 full debayer in a 2K timeline plays RT. This is using Metal.

    Can't wait to see the new Red SDK implemented in Resolve. I'm hoping for a good boost.

    It's in the latest version, and on my machine it made a huge difference. I was able to jump from de-Bayering to 1/8 (from 8K) in a 2K timeline to deBayering to 1/2 Good in a 4K timeline on my octacore laptop with a 2060 GPU.

    I meant the new METAL GPU accelerated R3D support.

    Ah the benefits of having a well-supported GPU. Apple's newest Mac Pro has locked in 2nd-best CPU, 2nd-best GPU, and 2nd-best PCI infrastructure compared with AMD CPU, nVidia GPU, and PCIe 4.0. Looks like it will be 6-12 months before SW catches up to support on Windows today. Will AMD GPU surpass nVidia by then? Will Intel be out of it's funk by then?

    Right now biggest feature of 2019 Mac Pro seems to be 6k display. That's a pretty thin thread by which to try to climb to #1.

    Depends on the software... a lot of the professional stuff is already able to take advantage of 64 cores in Windows.

    Will AMD GPU surpass nVidia by then?
    Possibly, but very unlikely given that nVidia is going to go from its current 12nm process to a 7nm EUV that will put it in parity with AMD's process...

    Will Intel be out of it's funk by then?
    Yes, but that doesn't that it will be back on top of the CPU game. I suspect that Core-X will compete extremely well with Zen2... right around when Zen3 starts shipping. :)

    The system I got is as follows:

    16c 3.2ghz
    96gb ram
    Single Vega II Duo, 32gb x 2
    1TB SSD

    Additionally I have the sonnet m.2 x 4 card on the way. with intel m.2 sdds.
    Also the Blackmagic 4k Mini Thunderbolt box.

    Still in earl testing, but safari is pretty snappy!

    Oh...and this is huge. The thing is dead silent. I thought it was broken when I hit the power button the first time!
    Shoot for the Impossible...Then do it.

    Would be interesting to see how much improvement you get with the extra GPU in Resolve. I posted a couple tests above.
