Re: show me a better laptop than this

You won't get a fourth external display over USB to run off the GPU, as you're both limited by it only being USB 3.1 (rather than a combination of USB and thunderbolt) and running up against the display count limit of nVidia cards. Also, because the mini-displayport ports are also only mini-displayp...

Re: PCIe x16

Hey I'm looking to replace my PCIe slot on my motherboard as it has failed. Do you mean failed through use or is it hanging off the board? If it's just stopped working then you're unlikely to be able to fix it by reusing the socket, then again if it's hanging off the board then there's the chance i...

Re: two blackmagic shuttles sometimes are not recognised

Hey there... the black magic shutttles are known to have some issues with certain usb chipsets used on a lot of motherboards. Try searching in the online manual of the shuttles or the net to find out wich chipset they dont like and what usb chipset is used on your board. From what I remember when I...

Re: Fixture building with partial control

This is something I've been meaning to suggest for a while. Being able to have control of colour through resolume but have master control from a console more easily would be nice. You can't currently have blank channels within a fixture. The easiest way to only control the RGB of a fixture is to pat...

Re: Intel core vs Xeon vs AMD Ryzen and graphic card configuration

Having a 'clean' install with a minimum of programs installed, and as many services disabled as possible is worth it if you can, as it will reduce the risk of anything interfering with CPU activity, or worse crashing the whole system. A popular idea is to use two separate ssd's in a system, one for ...

Re: Intel core vs Xeon vs AMD Ryzen and graphic card configuration

A few points which may or may not be relevant: 1. Between an i7 and a Xeon of the same specs there will not be any performance difference. The differences being some extra instruction sets on the Xeon and onboard graphics and turbo boost on the i7. As far as I know there hasn't been much info about ...

Re: low fps with 5 outputs on mac pro

This is unlikely to be a v-sync issue as that would reduce frame rate to one of the factors of 60 (so 30 then 15 fps), and if you're using active v-sync then that deactivates when frame rates drop below 60fps. This is more likely just to be trying to push a very large composition (and over a large n...

Re: How to play 12 out put Full HD

I am aware of how resolume handles having two active cards in a system. My point was rather that because of the way resolume handles two cards, and the lack of detail from Apple, that we can expect the outputs to be split between cards which reduces the FPS further. Now I understand your point, I'd ...

Re: How to play 12 out put Full HD

Nope, they used a slightly custom amd firepro model, the d300 /d500 /d700 depending on the spec of the Mac Pro. Performance is approximately in line with a r9 270, so performance will be very poor and even worse over 8k.

Re: How to play 12 out put Full HD

If you want to play '8k' footage, that's 16 1080p images, not 12. The current Mac Pro supports a total resolution of three 5k displays which is 44.2 million pixels, which is more than the area of four 4k displays. So it passes the issue of having such a physically large output. Your method of using ...
