    Choose a MAC

    by pilou » Tue Jan 14, 2014 1:17 pm

    Hello
    I use M8 since 5 years and I really need to have some informations about the mac ressources :
    A suggest about mac I can buy today, which models is the best, which options are not necessary...
    And a feedback about old laptops.
    information about framerates and number of layers.
    framerate and Blur option are not friendly for example...

    Using madmapper impact the framerate ? a little, medium, high ?
    the antialyasing have an impact ? is it better to use only in madmapper, or M8 or both or no to increase framerate.

    The size of ouput from M8, of Madmapper...
    number of layers in Madmapper...

    It is Ok that Photo JPG is the best option for video now.

    A table like this (I know this numbers are wrong and very hard to give a general opinion)

    what is the impact of the RAM ?
    what is the impact of the SSD ?
    what is the impact of the choice CPU / GPU option (say about GPU please)
    what is the impact of using artnet or usb DMX ?

    For me, with SSD and maximum RAM (8Go in my laptop), the framerate does not increase like before, I can now preload all of my show faster of course !

    Laptop i7 2011 2.6 4Go and HD5400 : outputs 2048X768 and 10 layers : maximum framerate : 10/s
    Laptop i7 2011 2.6 4Go and HD5400 : outputs 1024X768 and 10 layers : maximum framerate : 14/s
    Laptop i7 2011 2.6 - 8Go and SSD : outputs 1024X768 and 10 layers : maximum framerate : 20/s
    Laptop i7 2011 2.6 - 8Go and SSD : outputs 2048X768 and 10 layers : maximum framerate : 10/s

    laptop 2013 with basic GPU : outputs 1024X768 and 10 layers : maximum framerate : 25/s
    laptop 2013 with basic GPU : outputs 1024X768 and 5 layers : maximum framerate : 30/s

    laptop 2013 with bug GPU : outputs 1024X768 and 5 layers : maximum framerate : 60/s
    laptop 2013 with bug GPU : outputs 2048X768 and 5 layers : maximum framerate : 40/s

    Could you give your tips and tricks about possibility with macbookpro 2014, with macpro 2014 ?

    My show render is really not smoothie I really need some help. I have change SSD and RAM, now, I must reduce other things but where is the best ?

    Thanks for your feedbacks.
