If I were to install a 2nd graphics card, would it make rendering any faster in AE, Nuke, Final Cut, C4d, Smoke, Etc.? Any benefits?

Might be better to just get one good graphics card depending on what you have right now. thermocoffee January 10, 2013 4:25:27 PM I believe there's is no sli/crossfire support on macs. I have GTX 285 in my machine. I have another 285 laying around but before just installing it, I wanted to know if there were any benefits.

What specific Mac Pro model are we talking about here? thermocoffee January 10, 2013 4:38:24 PM Mac Pro (mid 2012) COLGeek a c 171 U Graphics card January 10, 2013 4:44:06 PM As you can see here: http://support.apple.com/kb/SP652 The system will certainly support 2 GPUs (the options for 2 HD5770s is referred to). An additional GPU will let you drive more displays, but without CF/SLI I don't think you'll see a rendering boost by adding a second GPU. I would pose this question to an Apple forum to get a more definitive response. thermocoffee January 10, 2013 4:45:43 PM Great! Thanks so much for your help!
