Just wanted to report that Beta 3 is crashing on me when I try to import FCP X XML files. Footage is mostly DVCPRO HD. This only started happening once I upgraded to Mavericks.

I upgraded my 3,1's (2008) GPU but not to one of the cards that you listed. I upgraded the ATI 2600 to an nVidia GTX 470. I keep both in the box. I used to GTX as my main card and use the ATI as a GUI

Paul, 1. Yep, I am aware of this. When I intend to be in Resolve for a while I use the ATI as the GUI and the GTX as the GPU. Everything is fine when I run like this. Both can be open at the same time
NVidia GeForce GTX 285 Sluggish Performance
by Don Smith 7 years ago
I've got a Mac Pro 3,1 (2008) with 10GB of RAM and running 10.7.3 (Lion). My graphics card is an NVidia GeForce GTX 285. FCPX runs like a stubborn mule. I work in it but it's like pulling teeth someti

Yeah, that is what I thought but was hoping for otherwise. Would be cool if it automatically used all present GPUs. Thanks!
