Reply to post on OS X 10.9.3/Late 2013 Mac Pro/Adobe CC Problems
(reply to earlier apple/adobe forum post on problems, implying some early builds had suspect GPU after he had his replaced.)
"Regarding OS X 10.9.3, Adobe ME on Late 2013 Mac Pro
Just a note that I haven't seen any problems encoding with Adobe Media Encoder CC and 10.9.3 on my 8 core D700 nMP with 64 GB. I received this unit in early January. It's currently hooked up to an Asus 32" 4k display, a 24" Apple LED Cinema Display, and a Seiki 39" 4k TV.

To be fair, all I am doing is encoding H.264 using it with ProRes HQ source files. I have openCL ON. No issues. I am currently editing with FCPX 10.1 which also shows no issues. (I encode h.264 with AME because it's a lot faster than Compressor or FCPX, and looks better; FCPX export to ProRes only is however fast.)

Of note: Davinci Resolve (I tried three versions) does crash my machine hard using 10.9.3.
(Heard disabling GPU is a workaround (sad).)

Thanks. (He also had sent earlier comments on OS X 10.9.3 and Final Cut Pro X on his Late 2013 Mac Pro with 3 displays, including 4K.)
