[Paul Dickin] "Put another way:
You're going to be wanting to process A on one device while you're doing B on a second.
Where A = Decoding/compositing/rendering etc etc
and B = Displaying/running fancy GUI animations - scopes etc/playing the timeline/encoding/exporting etc etc
And with the CPU there are three+ devices.
Seems like a whole lot of that goes on in editing or running Motion ;-)"

What MARI is doing with the hardware is technically quite different than what FCPX/M5 does -- but the point about distributing tasks over multiple CPU cores and GPUs stands.

The entire industry has been moving to multiple CPU cores and even multiple GPUs for years, and Apple has been playing catch-up here for a while -- but credit where it is due. In typical Apple style, they're making a bit of a leap-frog jump and re-defining the platform by shipping multiple GPUs, standard. This is a big deal.
