    Hey everybody, I bought a AMD 480 for my Mac Pro 4 1 (5 1 f/w hack) hoping to really give a boost to my motion graphics work. Unfortunately it feels pretty comparable to my 2015 MacBook Pro with the R9 m370x.

    I ran the script to unlock the additional cores and Geekbench is giving a score of around 120000 which is close to 3-4x the score for my laptop.

    I'm wondering if there's something I'm possibly missing. So far the upgrade hasn't really been all that valuable.

    Are you really GPU limiting? If not (e.g. you are CPU limiting), then the RX480 of course can't help.
