Bare Feats compares Final Cut Pro X performance running on a Mac Pro, MacBook Pro and iMac

Okay, we?ve been talking a lot about the features ?missing? in Final Cut Pro X, but what about your performance? Well, people from Bare Feats didn't compare it to Final Cut Pro 7 (not least because I think that would be a little unfair), but at least put it side by side on three different machines:

  • MP333 = Mac Pro 2010 with Intel Xeon processor ?Westmere?hexa-core 3.33GHz with 24GB ECC 1333MHz DDR3 RAM and AMD Radeon HD 5870 GPU (1GB GDDR5) graphics chipset
  • iMac340 = 2011 iMac with Intel Core i7 processor quad-core 3.4GHz with 16GB 1333MHz DDR3 RAM and AMD Radeon HD 6970M GPU (2GB GDDR5) graphics chipset
  • MBP230 = 2011 MacBook Pro with Intel Core i7 processor quad-core 2.3GHz with 8GB 1333MHz DDR3 RAM and AMD Radeon HD 6750M (1GB GDDR5) graphics chipset

Here are the results of four independent tests:

Yes, all very close and the iMac did even better in two of them! He and the MacBook Pro are the two that have already been updated with ?Sandy Bridge? chips; the Mac Pro is about to be updated.

The video in question was a ProRes 422 (HQ) with 32 seconds in duration, 1888 × 1062 pixels of resolution, 23.98 frames per second, data rate of 172.22MB / s and audio surround at 48kHz.
