3 February 2014
  • 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.

Further update

Michael R., Newegg
17 November 2013
  • Summary: This card is so new, I cannot find any support for Mac OS, yet.
  • 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 7.1.0.174 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 ...

K6000 can work in Mavericks

Michael R., Newegg
14 November 2013
  • Summary: 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.
  • 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.

K6000 not for Mac

Michael R., Newegg
14 November 2013
  • 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 G...

Not OEM packaging and was defective, damaged and used

Pen Name, Amazon
5 August 2013
  • Summary: BUYER BEWARE: the product was packaged in a generic box and although it had a bag with a seal around the card itself, that too was generic and could have easily been added by whomever repackaged it after it was used. It had a broken piece that holds the device cover on and it had marks on the cover but I figured none of that is visible (and it had other pieces to hold the cover on) and that was probably why it was so inexpensive so if it worked, I would keep it.

A Relevant Review

Omnicess, Amazon
23 October 2012
  • Summary: I suppose because this graphics card is so expensive, a lot of people just want to make fun of it, great. However the fact remains, some people actually do need this card for graphic design/animation etc, so here is a review that should actually be helpful. I purchased this card, twice, for use in Adobe Premiere CS6 & After Effects, the first card I bought was extremely glitchy, my screen kept flashing to black despite the fact that I updated the drivers and installed...

Selling My Liver and Kidney to Own This Card

me, Amazon
5 October 2012
  • Summary: Yes, you heard it right here. I am selling my kidney and liver to get this card because of the huge enormous gargantuan large price-point on this card. At over Two Thousand Dollars I cannot really afford this card, so I will need to dump a couple chunks of vital organs to make this happen.
