Just eyeing up the new Mac Pros which are to be released in the new year.

I realise they are very pricey, but I can justify the cost for business purposes. However, I was wondering how fast they would be for running primegrid.


Would the AMD FirePro's crunch GPU tasks?

It supports OpenCL so I would expect it runs, though maybe the applications need to be recompiled/updated. I'm not well versed enough in the techno blabla of the applications to be certain about that :)

Hi Fuzzy,

I hadn't seen the new Mac Pros before and they look awesome (if pricy!). The FirePros will be able to crunch GFN, GFN-WR & PPS-Sieve with the stock apps on PrimeGrid. CPU will be fine (obviously) for any LLR-based tasks, along with the rest.

I can't comment on the performance you should expect as I don't have experience of the AMD cards, but it *should* just work!
