networking for more processing power.
on Jan 26, 2013 at 7:57:39 pm

I recently purchased a mbp that has a quad core processor. I also have a late 2009 27" imac with a quad-core i7. Is there any way that I can connect the 2 and use the display of the imac while utilizing the processor to help with exports, renders, and other things? 2009 iMac doesn't have thuderbolt, but if I get an ethernet adapter, is there a software solution for utilizing the idle processors?

Resolve is gpu based and as far as i know you can not combine machines if you are not on linux version.

So i'd say no.

I think its a Linux only feature also. It uses Infiniband instead of ethernet too.

Thank you all for your input. Any suggestions for what I should do with my imac? Sell it, turn it into a part time monitor, any other ways to utilize the processor when it's in monitor mode for other post functions? The graphics card can't handle resolve on its own. Maybe I cut on the iMac and finish on the Mbp?

Or look at the latest iMacs as Peter posted some times ago here.

There's a few apps that would let you use your second laptop as a second monitor. Air Display is one of them. It's similar to screen sharing, you might get a performance decrease since computer #1 will be serving a video stream to your second computer.
