GTX 480, 570, 580, 670 and 680 performance

I know the 6xx series is not performing with increased performance in Resolve over the 5xx, but I do not know if it is less. As you also know, the 580 GTX is stupid expensive right now, especially the 3GB model. I cannot justify paying into NVIDIA's price gouging. Seriously, in the last two weeks the price shot up... instead of going down!

Therefore, on a hackintosh with a 285 GTX already, would you recommend the 670 over the 570 or 480? I'm also banking for performance in Premiere CS 5.5 - soon 6. To tell you the truth, my 285 does pretty good.

Finally, is there noticeable difference in performance on a Hackintosh with using an EFI flashed mac GPU or just using a regular PC GPU? I understand the 2.5 vs 5 gt bus issue but also heard that it adjusts under load, so system profiler may not being accurate.

Being on a Hackintosh, I can put any GPU in.

Thanks.

The 480 is close to the 580 in performance and is quite cheap right now, I just got two 480's with water cooling blocks for about $300.

ok, so if I have 2 gtx 480's plus the gtx 285 with a 6 core 3.33ghz running at 3.75ghz, how do you think Resolve 9 with 4k footage will handle?

I guess the 285 would be my GUI right?

Would you run the GTX 480 in SLI mode or regular?

I have a 750 watt PSU, I guess I have to upgrade that?

Thanks

Demand is high and supply is low. Reason for pricing discrepancy with the 580. Get the 570 or as Robert suggested 480 for a better value right now. Heck even the 680 may be a better value, but probably quite difficult to get running on Os X.

I agree with Juan on that.

Try to keep things reasonable in price sense.

Hi Matthew,

I just tested some 680s in Mountain Lion and put the results compared against 580s over in this thread.

I didn't have too much trouble with getting the 680s to work in OSX, but I haven't tried to use them for anything but Resolve, with no displays attached.
