With the new Mac Pro being announced at WWDC 2019 and SideFx endorsing it on the Apple webpage, the question arises as to the type of support that is being developed for it? i.e. Blackmagic Design, Otoy, Unity, Redshift/Maxon, Pixar and others have stated they are actively supporting Metal development.
SideFX “With the new Mac Pro’s incredible compute performance and amazing graphics architecture, Houdini users will be able to work faster and more efficiently, unleashing a whole new level of creativity.” — Cristin Barghiel, vice president of Product Development, SideFX
Thanks for the info! Does a duo card give any benefit compared to two regular GPUS on two separate cards? Like for example two Radeon VII cards ? If memory could be pooled I can see a benefit for larger simulations that uses OpenCL, otherwise, what is the point?
