Hi Gang,

as many video editors know the 2013 Mac pro trashcan can barely handle
simple 4k footage without over heating the GPU's and cause glitches and eventually failure.

I'm wondering if anyone here has worked out a work around for this?
Perhaps using an eGPU setup with external GPU's?

If not, what would you build to handle 8k video colorgrading?

2012 Mac Pro "cheesegrader" ????

Kinda stuck from a professional level and not happy to go to Windows because of
hardware issues.

If the iMac Pro isn't going to do it for you, then a 2012 cMP is a good choice. Personally, I prefer the towers for graphics upgrades and being modular; but regardless, either of the two should do the job just fine when outfitted properly.

I still love my G5 cheesegrader. It really warms up the room on cold winter days.

Just clean it. I’m horrified by dust and dirt I see inside Macs, this year I opened a MAC Pro cylinder and it was full of dirt and even insects.... just take care of your computer

In all honesty, at the price point we pay for these, we shouldn't have to clean that kind of crap out of any of these. I genuinely wish they came with removable dust filters because that would make my life way easier. PC still has a lot of advantages, and I kinda want to hybrid build PC in a cMP tower, and vice versa.... just because I'm dumb like that lol
