I've finally upgraded my 4+ year-old Hackintosh to Sierra from Mavericks.

Hackintosh
Intel Core i7 3.39 GHz Sandy Bridge
256 SSD
32 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
EVGA GeForce GTX 560 2048 MB
OS - Sierra 10.12.3
FCX 10.3.2

Yikes! Rending time ave: 168 seconds

My guess the reason for the slow time is the video card. I'm running dual monitors from the card, I'm sure that doesn't help.

UPDATE
I just replaced the above EVGA GeForce GTX 560 2048 MB card with a Sapphire R9 280X 3GB graphics card. Ran BruceX and as always followed the instructions. The R9 280X is over 4 times faster than the GeForce!

From the very first post...

3. In Final Cut Pro X, go to 'Final Cut Pro:Preferences…' – in the Playback tab make sure 'Background Render' is off.
7. In the 'Video Codec' section choose 'H.264' (edited to add - many people have got errors with H.264, so use ProRes422 instead you you have a problem - some times are given with different flavours of ProRes, but each person usually mentions which they've used when reporting their results)

Seems pretty well explained to me!

I don't know about anyone else but I followed the instructions on the first page.
