    NVME PCI-e controller

    By the way, I heard that SM981 drives are the oem for 970 pro, which are a bit cheaper, also what are the difference between PM981 (have great R/W) and the pro series?

    NVME PCI-e controller

    Thank you so much for your reply! I surely will try your suggestions running GPU at 8x lane, I read that performance are almost equally as 16x and I don’t play games... I will update once I’ll set up the HW

    NVME PCI-e controller

    Thank you for your reply ! when you say the HighPoint is bootable with clover, any setting need to be done in clover for RAID boot, or ...? my CPU have 40 lanes it should be enough although I was thinking to add another Tesla card for computing but then I will left with only 8x...and maybe causes bottleneck in my system. Buying X299 system will be expensive for my needs right now... Now I have already a cheap adapter (cost me less than 10$) which running fine on both HS and Mojave. Since I’m working with video files I want the fastest drive for editing, caching etc.

    NVME PCI-e controller

    well both of the cards are not compatible with X99 motherboard the only option for me is the really expensive HighPoint card (400$ and above) which can "act" as a RAID controller and this card supported by OSX OOTB as I read...

    NVME PCI-e controller

    thanks fabiosun, I have a generic adapter for my Pro 950 and its working fine with full bandwidth speed X4 on PCIeX16, I want to create a RAID 0 with a cheap 1TB NVME drives for video work, hopefully the Asus adapter will work... the NVME drives are locally made here in China with R/W speed of about 2000mb/s cost about 145$ comparing the 970 pro 1tb 400$... Testing time ahead...
  6. Hi , Is anyone try out an NVME PCI-e controller on a Mac OS? I am considering to buy one and I have 2 options: Dell Ultra-Speed Drive Quad NVMe M.2 PCIe x16 Card https://www.amazon.com/gp/offer-listing/B0714MMD6M/ref=dp_olp_0?ie=UTF8&condition=all&qid=1537779895&sr=1-1 Or Asus Hyper M.2 x16 Card Expansion NV Me M.2 https://www.amazon.com/Asus-Hyper-M-2-x16-Card/dp/B0753JTJTG/ref=sr_1_3?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1537780337&sr=1-3&keywords=asus+hyper+m.2+x16+pcie+expansion+card the DELL cost about 110$ (found a cheap saller) and the Asus about 70$, I heard that the Asus is plug and play card but need to try, any recommendation? Thanks

    [pre-release] macOS Mojave

    is there a problem for quick view? on my system without Webdrivers or any Nvidia drivers I can quick preview JPG and JPEG also MOV files with all the editing option that have in the new 10.14, is that a specific problem you have or a global problem? Just waiting for Nvidia release the new Webdrivers
  8. Hi, dont know if here is the right category for this question however I want to ask if anyone ever tried to use NVME M.2 Drive with such an adapter like the Asus DDMM.2 ? How the Mac OS “see” the drives? do we need special drivers?

    [pre-release] macOS Mojave

    Hmmm...I just wondered , Can OS X use Intel VROC technology? VROC (virtual RAID on CPU) I heard a X299 MB needed and the new I9 chip

    Nvidia GTX Titan V

    FCPX is good application but i mostly using Davinci resolve for both CG and editing, new Radeon GPU are expensive comparing to the Z which give better perfoemance in encoding...but maybe after the GTX 20XXX will come out the Radeon price will drop..?

    Nvidia GTX Titan V

    Is GTX Titan V supported in Mac OS? I may have a good deal on a second hand card, I do need the CUDA core power for video editing etc. Thanks
  14. Well...I did some testing...in DR there is maybe 1 frame different between a single 1070Ti to 760...seems like other SW not utilizing dual GPU so , removing second GPU not only because the poor add but it cause heat a lot in my small ATX case... thanks
