      What is really the benefit of using Metal opposed to Open CL. I have yet to see a performance increase using metal with Premiere Pro as described by both Apple and Adobe?

      I have a 2018 iMac Pro 3.0 GHz 10 Core processor with the  Vega 64 graphics card and 128 gig ram. My machine is pretty beefy. Im also using a Thunderbolt 3 radio ssd drive that I edit off of, but when I use OpenCL I get great performance and my timeline render line is yellow no drop frames, but with Metal I get choppy performance and my timeline render line is red lots of dropped frames. Im editing RED 8K footage. Again with OpenCL I get great performance.  I thought Metal was suppose to offer a little better performance? Can anyone offer any input on this?
