    Has anyone tried the Rocket-X on the new Mac Cheese-grader Pro?

    I am curious if it works and if it worth it.


    Thx.

    Why would you? The AMD GPU inside will do the job just as well. I guess the only reson for using the X card would be for the video out but then a BM card or somthing that does not only display r3ds is a better option, no?

    Maybe to free up some GPU processing power for NR nodes and such? Why not! ;-)

    Officially Rocket-X has no support on MacOS Catalina. But it seems like some people managed to get it running → http://www.reduser.net/forum/showthr...43#post1892343

    Mostly because I own one and would like to know if anyone has used it in a new MacPro tower.
    It would be a shame having to trow away a $6k card.

    I would gladly ditch my $6k card if Apple offered a configuration that was better for my workflow for a half-way decent price (like not much more than 50% higher than conventional PC prices). Unfortunately they don't offer anything better at any price, so I'm still using RR-X and I'm still not buying their new machines. Everybody's loss 8-(
