Windows 11 is finally here, although many popular editing applications like Premiere Pro and After Effects do not yet have full official support. But, is there a reason to go ahead and upgrade to Windows 11 for video editing even before full support is added?
DaVinci Resolve Studio – Intel Xeon W-3300 Processor Performance
Intel’s new Xeon W-3330 series of workstation CPUs are here, ranging from 12 to 38 cores, and touting up to 18% IPC improvements. But are these features worth the higher cost of the Xeon platform, and how do they fare against AMD’s Threadripper Pro line in DaVinci Resolve?
DaVinci Resolve Studio: 11th Gen Intel Core vs AMD Ryzen 5000 Series
Earlier this month, Intel announced the initial launch of their new 11th Gen Intel Core desktop processors (code-named “Rocket Lake”). These new processors are marketed as having substantially better per-core performance compared to their previous 10th Gen Core models, but at the tope end have fewer total CPU cores. Will these changes allow Intel to overtake AMD for DaVinci Resolve?
DaVinci Resolve Studio – AMD Ryzen Threadripper PRO 3000 Series CPU Performance
AMD’s new Threadripper Pro CPUs are here, combining many of the features from their Threadripper and EPYC CPU lines including increased memory and PCI-E capability. These increased capabilities should make them excellent for DaVinci Resolve, but are they worth the higher cost?
PCI-Express 4.0 vs 3.0 Video Card Performance
PCI-Express has been the standard for connecting video cards and other expansion devices inside of computers for many years now, and several generations of the technology have now passed. With each of those generations, the amount of data that can be transferred over the PCIe connection has increased. How much impact does that have on modern video cards? Is there any benefit to running a PCIe 3.0 card in a 4.0 slot, or loss if using a 4.0 card in a 3.0 slot?
DaVinci Resolve Studio: AMD Ryzen 5000 Series CPU Performance
Ever since the launch of their 3rd generation Ryzen and Threadripper processors, AMD processors have been a strong choice for DaVinci Resolve Studio. Not only is Resolve able to utilize a decent number of CPU cores, but because of how heavily it leverages the GPU, having a platform with PCI-E 4.0 can make a measurable impact on performance. However, AMD’s Ryzen 5000 Series processors are here, touting major increases in performance in per-core performance which should allow AMD to take a solid lead over Intel in DaVinci Resolve.
DaVinci Resolve CPU performance: AMD Threadripper 3990X 64 Core
DaVinci Resolve may be known for its ability to utilize your GPU, but depending on your project, the CPU can actually be a bigger factor for performance. But even in these cases, is AMD’s new Threadripper 3990X with 64 cores overkill?
DaVinci Resolve Studio 16.1.2 Update – RED SDK improvements
The latest version of DaVinci Resolve (16.1.2) includes an update to the latest RED SDK which is supposed to greatly improve performance when working with R3D files in DaVinci Resolve. But exactly how much of an impact does this make in the real world? (Hint: it is a lot!)
What is the Best CPU for Video Editing (2019)
Your CPU is one of the most important parts in your workstation, but picking which CPU to use can be an overwhelming task with literally hundreds of options to choose from. In this post, we will be discussing what the best CPU is to use for a video editing workstation while keeping things at a relatively high level so that it can help answer the question for anyone – regardless on how much they keep up with the latest tech.
DaVinci Resolve Studio CPU Performance: Intel Core X-10000 vs AMD Threadripper 3rd Gen
People often overlook the CPU when it comes to DaVinci Resolve, but in many cases the CPU is just as important as the power of your GPU(s). With Intel and AMD both launching new HEDT processors, getting a powerful Resolve workstation is easier than ever. The lower price of the Intel X-10000 series makes triple GPU setups more affordable, while the AMD Threadripper 3rd Gen CPUs continue to push the performance envelope.
