Bought this card to replace Stock card in Mac pro 4,1. Using this machine with qlab sound and video live show playback software. Seems to have no problem sending 3 multi layer HD video streams to 3 separate video projectors.
After driver install, card dropped sraight into the mac and booted up first time with no setup required.
Bizon shipped very promptly and their customer service is great!
Thanks!

The graphics card works like a charm. These cards are hard to come by for classic Mac Pros. I am very happy to have found a place that not only offers a great collection at a fair price, but also excellent customer service.

BizonBOX 3 + Titan X Pascal

Josh Deprez
24 February 2017
Comment:
I recently got a BizonBOX 3 for use with my MacBook Pro (13", Touch Bar), connected to a Dell 5K panel.
The BizonBOX 3 has a TITAN X (Pascal) in it, so currently macOS can't use it. (This is on NVIDIA more than anyone else - hurry up with the drivers NVIDIA!).

However since getting it I've used it with Windows 10 (Boot Camp), to play a few games, and maybe play around with CUDA and deep learning/AI stuff.

Glorious! The TITAN X (Pascal) is a true beast. Knocks the AMD cards in the Mac Pro clean out of the water.

There are several upsides:
* As mentioned above, it's got grunt, and I can swap in an even beefier GPU when one exists.
* I don't have to plug the BizonBOX in all the time, saving power.
* The 400W power supply, similar to a PC switch-mode supply, has an ordinary IEC power connector and works on the Australian power system (240V), just swap the cable.
* As mentioned above, if you care about macOS, get one of the supported cards.

A few caveats:
* Windows 10 hates hot-plugging Thunderbolt 3. Follow directions and plug it in before powering on. This also applies any Thunderbolt drives you might be using...
* The 400W power supply, and the BizonBOX itself, are not "silent". But, I don't notice it after it's been on a while. Sticking it under the desk would probably help.
* I haven't figured out why yet, but Dishonored 2 likes to crash after about 10 minutes of play at 5K. It's stable at 4K resolution. Other games seem rock solid.

Comment:
I use Mac and I need a GPU to be shared with all members in my team. Bizon box is the best option for me. It really boost up my DNN calculation on Matlab for at least 10 times (or sometime even 50 times).

Awesome product!

BizonBOX, Asus GTX 980 Ti

Comment:
Got a lof of answers on questions I had before I did the purchase.

Allthough all cards shown and mentioned on the website are Nvidia, Asus cards are delivered.. which is slightly confusing when unboxing of course.

The guide for installing is super helpfull, took 20min to install including standalone and C4D plugin of Octane.

Bizon PC

Wes,

Thank you for your feedback and sorry for the confusion with the graphics card!

We use graphics cards from several major brands, including ASUS because they have better performance and better cooling system than reference Nvidia cards.

Bizon Box 3 + TITAN X

Comment:
I use Macbook Pro 2016 and MacPro 2013 for 4K/8K video editing. Both machines are fully customized.

After I start using Bizon Box 3, I see significant performance improvement. For example, noise reduction processing speed increased by over 80% and rendering time also improved. Given the fact that both machines use the best CPU and GPU that Apple offers, I am really satisfied by the performance of the Bizon Box 3.

There were some issues during hardware install but customer support was very helpful. The customer support was very fast and responded within one hour.

Dear Yoshida-san,

Thank you for your detailed feedback and benchmark results!

NVIDIA GTX for Mac Pro

Its wonderful to find professional support for My Macpro mid 2010. I giving new life to my Macpro until Apple can decide if they want to continue with supporting their 3D professionals base.

Also Bizon tech support has been top with giving solutions to solve problems connecting an external 5K Retina monitor. where Bizon is filling the Gap where Apple support has dropped. I have been impressed with getting tech support even posting questions on the weekends and after hours.

Best, Behrooz

Behrooz,

thank you for you kind words about our technical support team!

GTX980Ti

MacPro5,1 2.4GHz 8-core running 10.10.5 – main applications are Davinci Resolve 12.5 and Nuke-X 6.3v8 for video production – bought a GTX980Ti from Bizon and very happy with the performance upgrade over my (very old!) ATI Radeon.

Main improvement is super quick preview and output render times – plus real-time playback @ 2K 30FPS DPX – in Davinci Resolve. Nuke-X, despite being an old version of the app, runs incredible quick with the GTX980Ti and Yosemite 10.10.5.

Going to buy a second GTX980Ti for my other MacPro5,1 very soon.

Dan,

Thank you for your detailed feedback!

We are looking forward to a second order from you.

BizonBox 2s

Simon LeDuc

Comment:
I use an iMac 2011 & a Macbook Pro 2015 with a BizonBox 2s with a GTX 980 TI

It works well with the Macbook Pro but is a little ''ghetto'' with the iMac.
It works flawlessly with the Macbook Pro but when used with the iMac, it can crash many times while booting.
Sometime, you can get 5 ''kernel panick'' booting message and suddently, it just works.
Support was great. I had a defective PSU and they exchanged it quickly.
This is THE best eGPU solution for a Mac.

Bizon PC

Simon,

Thank you for your honest feedback about the BizonBOX.

Some iMacs 2011 have issues with the BizonBOX, because this is a first iMac model with Thunderbolt.

Newer iMacs work as flawlessly as your MacBook Pro.
