It is in a usable state for some.

I don't have time to do any scientific test, but on the old system with FCP 7, I had to render virtually
every effect put on a clip. Put a "old film" plug-in on a 1 min. clip. takes about 30sec -1 min to render.
In FCP X - it takes 1 sec - because it doesn't have to render. So FCP X is upto 60x faster.

It seems all FX in X preview and play in realtime. Not so many years ago, we were paying $10k
for realtime render/accell boards.....remember those? Now it's free with your $299 NLE.

Use AVCHD in FCP7 - the work flow is much longer/slower than X. So X is faster simply because it
edits AVCHD natively.

Do you think that X is slower under the hood? X has the power we've all been waiting for. We just need
to wait for the features to get where we all want them.

X works for some of my work, 7 for others, Premier for others. It's not about a tool. X did not destroy my life.
