Mac Pro 5.1 with OS 10.8.5 and 3 GTX Titans

Hello,

I'm using a Mac Pro 5.1 with ML 10.8.5.I'm looking for a solution to run 3-4
Gtx titans externally.I lean towards a Cubix Xpander with MacVidCards.
My main concern is,does it work at all.
i would use it mainly for Octane Renderer with C4D.
it would be nice if any pros could give me some information about this.

i have read a couple of threads here where Mavericks has some issues with
Cubix-titans combination.

I don't really have to switch to a PC,do i?

You might want to chip in over on the LiftGammaGain forums (for video colour graders), lots more expansion chassis users over there

Good luck. And no, you never need to go to windows again

Hi,

is there any limitation of how many GPUs you can use externally with OSX?
Thank you

If you're running 10.8.5 then I think there's no GPU limit, which is why a lot of the colorists over in the Lift Gamma Gain Forum are stuck in that OSX. But if you are in 10.9 or 10.10 there's a 1 GUI + 2 GPU limit, ie. you can have only three cards recognized by OSX. And apparently a Red Rocket card counts at a graphics card in this respect.

I'm basically quoting information that I found at the LGG Forum under the Hardware subforum CPU & GPU. I'd recommend poking around there for more info.
