[Bernard Newnham] "So in the wider world, what's it for?


We've already seen that for software like BlackMagic Resolve and FCP X — software that's largely been rewritten in the past decade - it can run SIGNIFICANTLY faster on modern hardware than the older NLEs legacy code can.

So you can get more work done more easily and faster.

In the new MacPro approach, there's a specific solution (Afterburner) that moves the transcoding load off of both the CPU and the GPU and onto a special programmable processor that is designed to eliminate playback bottlenecks.

So it's primarily a play for efficiency and speed with current workflows - and a play to get ahead of the coming wave of high raster content headed our way via the 8K cameras on the horizon. (There was a prototype Canon in the C-500 form factor class demo'd at the WWDC event.

That's the core of the story, anyway.
