5 out of 5 eggsSolid on Mac

Pros: Very fast card, works fine on Mac OS 9.x. I had to do a completely clean install to get it to work properly.

Cons: Their is a lot of bad information about this card not working in mac. It's true that it's not supported, but it will work.

2 out of 5 eggsFurther update

Pros: Makes rendering very, very fast.

Cons: Very unstable in Mavericks. Adobe runs pretty well and the renders are much faster than without the card, but Adobe has had some dynamic link issues since the update to so things go offline randomly. The odd thing is when I put the card in, other apps can run ok at first, but then after a while, things like Preview won't run and they remain unusable until I take the card out, boot up the machine with just the ATI Radeon 5770, and then reinstall the K6000 in slot 2. That buys me some time, but the problems return after a short time. I tried to install x-plane and the installer crashes on launch. This card is clearly not supposed to work in a Mac and I am on the bleeding edge. Another strange thing is that I had run the machine with just the K6000 in slot one, but then I tried it at the Genius bar, it would not even boot that way, so the behavior is very inconsistent. I just need this card to make Adobe Premiere and AE render fast, which it does, but it would be nice to have an otherwise functional machine.

Other Thoughts: This card is so new, I cannot find any support for Mac OS, yet.

3 out of 5 eggsK6000 can work in Mavericks

Pros: Update to my previous post that the K6000 cannot work in Mac; It cannot work in Mac 10.8.5, but it does work in Mavericks, though it's not certified in Adobe CC.

Cons: It's not fast enough. Mac users will need to get another power cable for inside the Mac Pro because the card has two plugs. The cables that come with the card are for PC's only.

Other Thoughts: I can't tell if I'm getting maximum performance because I'm trying to get realtime playback of dynamically linked HD compositions with motion stabilization and mesh warped transparent layers at 23.976 fps and Premiere still won't quite do it even on a new Mac Pro 5.1 with 64GB of RAM and SSD SATA drives. I will say that at draft settings in AE it renders really fast, but I don't know how much the CUDA is helping. It's clear that the Open CL support has be upgraded so the card is identified as a K6000 in system profile, but there is still an error under the PCI summary which is non specific.

1 out of 5 eggsK6000 not for Mac

Pros: It's well built and is quiet.

Cons: With the latest CUDA driver (5.5.28) and GPU driver (8.16.74 310.40.00.10f02) on a brand new Mac Pro 5.1 running 10.8.5, the card boots up find and appears in the system report without error, but Premiere will not run. The only red flag is that there is an error in the PCI portion of the system report which says there was an error reading the PCI cards, but the Graphics/Displays report recognizes the card without error. After Effects will run with a warning that the GPU is not supported for CUDA acceleration, but it WILL allow you to use the card. I email directly with someone at Adobe who initially said the K6000 was working great on their systems, but then got back to me to tell me that the K6000 was not supported on Mac. I'm hoping there will be a driver update since it's clear the EFI portion of the BIOS is present and working since the computer boots up properly.
