Hi all,

Just wondering how the new Kona drivers (10.3) are working for you along with FCPX?

My experience so far has been better than 10.0.3 but still sluggish. Specific issues are that video monitor playback is a couple frames ahead of the computer playback. Video playback is not fluid. Not quite sure whether to have playback set to performance or quality? Both settings tend to be a bit sluggish and unpredictable. Seems to slow down the program, too, but can't confirm this.

I recognize the bottleneck could be my tower, but I'm just hoping that it isn't. I'm running:

Mac Pro 3,1 (2008)
Kona 3
16GB RAM
NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GT (I have a Radeon 5770 in another system that I can bring over if that helps. That said, the system with the 5770 is also having stuttering problems with FCPX, but it is a 2007 Mac Pro with 8GB RAM).
eSATA drives
Footage is 1080i23.98 Prores. tried playing it out 23.98 and also 29.97. I prefer playback at 29.97 since display is interlaced.


Thanks,
