I have a "cheese grater" 4,1 (upgraded to 5,1), a nMP 2013 and an iMac Pro. (I have a 2,1 cheese grater, but that really can't do any editing justice at this time.)

The iMac Pro is (obviously) the best for 4K+ timelines, and the 5,1 gives respectable 4K performance with a Caldigit RAID, although it's happier with 1080 projects at this point. The nMP is also fine for 4K, but not so good for Resolve as the iMac Pro. But I never felt any of them particularly sluggish using FCPX compared to other NLEs.

FCP7 was definitely past it's prime by the time they put it out to pasture, but FCPX keeps getting faster & faster. Premiere feels like FCP7.5 at this point.
