Does Lumion support the new Mac Pro (if run on Bootcamp)? Does it take advantage of the dual GPU's.

Lumion has run on Macs with Bootcamp so you would expect it to run with the new Mac Pro as well (unless there are some major changes, not sure if any of dev have tested).

What are the dual GPU specs?

Does anyone know if Bootcamp supports dual GPU as well?

Yeah I'm sure it will run but my question is would it take full advantage of the two GPUs in the Mac Pro? The one I orders has two AMD FirePro D500 (3GB each).

Lumion said that AMD FirePro is not convenient for Lumion..!  I really wants to know if there were somebody tested AMD FireProD500 or D700 for Lumion already..?

Lumion does not, and so far has never accessed and used more than one GPU at a time.  There were some tests done some time ago by the dev team, but accessing multiple GPU's was not realised.

Multiple GPU's would only be useful for dedicating one to Lumion and the other to other PC tasks.

Is there any benchmark results for AMD FirePro D500 or AMD FirePro D700 cards for Lumion..?

No.  Benchmark Results - NEW [from Sept 2013 (Lumion v3.1.1+)]

There are also no results for those two cards at Passmark as yet.
