      • 12-core 2013 Mac Pro (Ivy Bridge 6,1 Cylinder) and dual 6-core Mac Pro (Westmere 5,1 tower) model CPU's on Mac OSX 10.10.x (Yosemite) have known performance issues with playback, render, and transcode of RED material. If possible, customers with these CPUs that use RED workflows should stay on Mac OS 10.9.5 as it does not exhibit the same performance issues. (UPDATE: This is fixed with the latest RED AMA plugin v1.16.5 and later)
