Installation steps 

Used Automated Script thanks to Fr34k and Goalque. Was using temporary script on earlier version of high Sierra, but simple to update and worked perfectly.

Very impressive increase in rendering speed of 4k, 6k and 10k video in premiere pro and Davinci Resolve 14. As long as using internal SSD, I can run full resolution video playback in timelines with no skipping. Using external drives causes bottleneck.

Hi. If you have a moment to spare, can you run the SteamVR Performance test? I have this exact laptop and am looking at a solution to run the HTC Vive Pro. Thanks!

Hi! I have the exact same set up except I have a Mantiz Venus v2, but my question is, can you run this script on Mac OS Mojave? or does it have to be done on high Sierra 10.13 (I already updated and don't really want to backtrack unless its necessary)
