Is AMD GPU being used by max (mac) ?

    This is my first post here
    I'm using a jitter based max for live video suite called "vizzable" ( and I've got really poor performances, low fps...The nice guy who made the suite suggested it was probably driver related, pb with max not using the GPU of my HD7950. A device in the suite, particle, almost takes 20% of the CPU...
    Does anyone know something about this ? Drivers pb of the AMD HD7000 series and max ?
    MacPro octo 2.8, 10.9.2, latest max, latest Live, Sapphire HD7950 mac edition.
    Thanks for your help,

      Its hard to say, can't you just post how much video memory your graphics card has ?
      When I started with Jitter I started with the Vizzie modules, they used a lot of cpu and had a low resolution (and thats with a 1 gig amd card), after a good year I now do everything in jitter (thanks to these epic forums !) and send data to it with ableton live, runs far far better.
      - Good question though, do's jitter use the full GPU on a amd card ??
