BARE FEATS LAB - real world Mac speed tests

Blackmagic RAW Speed Test results for various Mac configurations

May 29th, 2020 by rob-ART morgan, mad scientist
June 13th, retest of single VII and 5700XT in 2019 Mac Pro slot 1

We have begun testing various Macs in various configurations to see how well they score on the Blackmagic RAW Speed Test.


Blackmagic RAW Speed Test - CPU
8K 12:1 bitrate (HIGHER Frames per Second = FASTER)

WHAT DID WE LEARN?

When it comes decoding full resolution Blackmagic RAW frames, having a powerful CPU and GPU makes a significant difference.

Head scratcher: Why is the Pro Vega II Duo in the 2019 Mac Pro so much slower than the dual Radeon VIIs and dual Radeon RX 5700 XTs? Even the Dual FirePro D700s in the 2013 Mac Pro are faster than the Duo! We have asked Blackmagic to comment on the disparity. They agreed to look into it. When they respond, we will post their explanation.

We welcome readers to email us a screenshot of their 8K 12:1 bitrate results using the free Blackmagic RAW Speed Test so we can expand this page to include more Mac examples like we did with Cinebench 20.
