    Yes Quick Sync only applies to Intel i3/i5/i7 computers. For recent Macs using Xeon, it is likely AMD’s VCE. It makes sense because iMac Pros H26x performance I have seen is not as high as you expect compared to i-CPU based Macs or at least it should better considering the CPU and GPU are superior. VCE is not quite as mature as QS.

    Maybe it’s me but I read that as Quicksync vs no QS. it doesn’t say iMac without Quick Sync vs Mac Mini with T2 only. There is no benchmark with just T2. I don’t think that is possible. Or I have not seen a benchmark. If you follow the Hackintosh crowd, there are also hypothesis that Apple is using AMDs implementation of Quick Sync

    Afaik and reading that article, T2 is wholly dependent on Quick Sync and it’s role is limited. Quick Sync is doing the heavy lifting. And even then Quick Sync supports only specific profiles and settings. i also don’t see any reference for H264/265 acceleration with the iMac Pro other than Xeon multi core efficiencies. Regarding Afterburner

    [quote user="Fish"]Are you saying there is no accelerator advantage to the Artist series?[/quote] It does have the DNx codec hardware but AFAIK this only assists with baseband capture (SDI).

    [quote user="Fish"]How exactly will the Avid hardware work?[/quote] I don't see how the new Mac Pro will change anything in terms of I/O box. You should be able to use the current I/O boxes. I assume Apple will use PCIe Gen3 similar to HP z8G4 and z4G4s. It is more of a driver issue for the new macOS. Acceleration from I/O BOBs is dead

    The file was generated from what? It seems like a "non-compliant" ProRes. You should be able to at least link to it. I would try reinstalling QT and/or MC.

    [quote user="craigbmoore100"] I ’ m keen on using 3 x ASUS PB287Q, 28’’ 4K monitors. 2 for Avid and 1 as a half decent broadcast monitor. Is this possible? Does Avid scale to 4K? Would my HP Z440 be able to run these? How would I connect these up and would I need extra hardware? [/quote] Avid does scale to 4K monitors (aka

    I think the AJA has a setting for PSF or P in the Video section of their Control Panel app. It might be under "SDI". I'm not sure how the HDMI output is adjusted.

    With 3rd party boxes like AJA and Blackmagic, you need to toggle it in the driver app from each manufacturer. Seems to work OK with Blackmagic.
