[Rick Lang] "Andrew, BMD have already indicated they are getting Resolve 10 tuned for the new Mac Pro via it's latest iteration of OpenCL. Of course Resolve will run on other systems, but it sounds like it may run best on the new Mac Pro."

I think you're reading too much into the Grant Petty quote. I didn't get the sense that they are actually tuning Resolve for the new Mac Pro, but rather that the new Mac Pro has features that Resolve was already built to use.

Resolve is written to exploit multiple GPUs. Since the new Mac Pro will have multiple GPUs, it will run Resolve well.

A system with more GPU compute ability (better GPUs, more GPUs, or both) will run it better.

Of course, perhaps this could still be a Mac Pro with additional GPUs attached via Son of Thunderbolt, but it could also be, for example, a Windows box stuffed with NVIDIAs.
