EVGA GTX570 2.5 GB w/ MacVidCards FW

I just got my EVGA GTX570 back from David Pirinelli at MacVidCards. I have the 2.5GB model. My hope was to have a Resolve that can run "OK" off of a single GPU for GUI and processing and for other GPU apps... such as Smoke, MC and Adobe CS.

I have not done extensive testing, but I just ran a 23.976/1080 ProRes project that is single layer.

Basically 10 Nodes, one node with a blur and one with NR Radius 3 and am getting 16 FPS. If I kill the NR I get 24fps solidly. Also have scopes running on 2nd monitor.

The system:

Mac Pro 12-core 2.66 GHZ
Resolve 8.2 (non-beta)
GTX 570 2.5 GB

Also running dual monitors... 27" HP ZR2740w via DisplayPort and 25" Dell on the dual-link DVI port.

Not too shabby. This system also has Pro Tools HDX, Atto 42-es and Decklink HD Dual-link card. Will be opening an Epic 5k show on it later.

Prior to the Mac Vid Cards firmware update, it ran much slower. All PCI info shows up and card is reported to the system as GTX 570 w/ 2.5 GB VRAM. Link speed says 5.0 GT... it used to show up as 2.5 GT!

Anyhow, hats off to David. The 570 seems to be the price, power and VRAM sweet spot.
