Please forgive my ignorance, but is there an improvement in rendering speed when running El Capitain?

From personal experience it feels slightly faster to render under El Capitan but as far as I know, there's no specific support for Metal in the current version of FCPX.

This is just a test.

Last FCPX update was 9/3/15; El Capitan was released on 09/30/15.

So no I wouldn't expect to see these sorts of OS specific improvements until at least one or more newer FCPX releases comes down the pipe.

The headlines from WWDC weren't very clear, but Metal is not an OS feature that provides performance increases "for free" just by virtue of running El Capitan.

Metal is a new graphics API, and applications must be specifically written for Metal to benefit from it.

Yup and word I hear is that it's no easy task to refactor existing apps for Metal. So not saying it's impossible or even unlikely to happen for FCPX just that it could potentially be a while.
