    Hey there!
    Simple question: does Final Cut Pro X take advantage of the D500 or D700 'fast double-precision computations, executing at one-quarter the performance of single-precision floating point rather than the 1/16 performance seen in the D300 and most consumer GPUs.' (quoted from Apple Online Store)? Does Excel?
    What applications actually do?
    Cheers.

    I don't know the answer, but if it doesn't I would say Apple messed up for sure.

    This is a good question. Anyone with a Titan or Titan Black who runs FCPX could find out for sure. Set up some sort of benchmark for FCPX and run it. Then enable Double Precision in the Nvidia drivers and run it again.

    Should be pretty easy to tell. (cards flashed by the guy in Germany with cracked rom don't work, also cards sold by Create-Pro)
