    Where can I get a 690 and/or Titan for Mac?
    Do you just use the regular/pc version?
    If so, does it need to be flashed or something?
    Does it work with 10.6.8 or do I need to upgrade?

    Thanks!

    You’ll need 10.8.4 in order to use the latest nVidia GPUs. There’s no Mac version of these cards. There’s a catch: no boot screen if you use the card for GUI.

    I installed a Titan in my MP 2009, but I’m having some power issues. Not sure why.
    During heavy load the Mac shuts down.

    Hmph, I dont know if those issues would be worth it considering there is a mac version of the 680? I’m curious how different the cards perform in a single card config?

    The Titan won’t work in a Mac Pro. There’s not enough power. The best card for inside Mac Pro use is the 680 with 2×6-pin power connectors.

    With a Cubix, you can use 4xGTX Titan.

    Hi Rohit,

    The Titan should work with an external power supply such as https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817104054

    Am I right to asume that?

    Thanks,
    Boris

    We tried both cards in a 5.1 macpro with cubix. With the Titan we can render out 5K RED to 4k masters @ about 14-20FPS with full res debayer and 3-4 nodes (qualifiers, power windows for sky tracking,etc)

    The Titan edges out the 690 +quadro 4k. We’re staying with the Titan.

    On a side note:

    Now If we can just solve the random black frame issue (it exists with any card we’ve tried) when rendering out +6min of 4k material. Workaround is to roundtrip XML to premiere, and re-render clips with errors (usually 1-3 per 5 min of mastering)

    Are you on the latest version of Resolve? Black flashes seemed to be fixed in 9.1.4

    Yes, we updated to 9.1.4 but still get some flashes. It drove us a little crazy on a 9 minute 4K video we recently finished.

    [chris karcher] “Yes, we updated to 9.1.4 but still get some flashes. It drove us a little crazy on a 9 minute 4K video we recently finished.”
    You’re using Titan and 9.1.4? There are two know issues which result in random black frames.

    1) was a bug with large LUTs in the node tree, on kepler GPU cards (680/690)
    2) Is a card without enough RAM to store a large image (680 2GB, 690s)… this would tend to occur much less frequently.

    Issue #1 was fixed with 9.1.4. Issue #2 should not affect the Titans. Are you sure you were processing on Titans and only with Titans? Did you enable the new “use GUI card for processing” function per chance?

    Yes, maybe not in a mac, but we have gotten multiple Titans and GTX 690s running no problem in our custom osx workstations.

    Custom osx workstation…

    Sounds better then Hackintosh!
