[Bret Williams] "Wouldn't that depend on what computer and GPU you have? If a plugin is tapping into cuda, great on a particular card on a Mac Pro, or on a hacked 2012 imac, but a dog on a 2011 imac."

Yes and no. I am comparing the same plug-ins on the same machine without any CUDA. Obviously anything CUDA-enabled would benefit that app, but not FCP X. Nothing that works with FCP X uses CUDA, AFAIK. Anything optimized for FCP X uses OpenCL, while most plug-ins are optimized for OpenGL or some for CUDA. Generally iMacs have been better, but at NAB a number of demos I saw were running on iMacs and they actually performed worse than on Mac Pros. Enough so that the developers had to apologize.
