Benchmarks: Final Cut Pro X 10.4.7 gets a serious performance boost with new Metal engine

Rob Morgan for Bare Feats:

Final Cut Pro X 10.4.7 with a new Metal Engine exhibits some serious performance gains — under both macOS Mojave and macOS Catalina.

[Setups tested]:
• Pro Vega 64 = 2017 iMac Pro 8-core with Radeon Pro Vega 64 internal GPU
• Radeon VII = 2017 iMac Pro 8-core with Radeon VII in external eGPU Box

MacDailyNews Take: Okay, those are some insane performance gains for FCPX 10.4.7 vs. 10.4.6!


  1. FCPX is still slower than it was back in 2015 even with this latest update.

    FCPX performance dropped steadily over the years with every update and this update has not brought it back to where it was in 2015.

    Metal is just Apple hype.
