DaVinci Resolve is a very GPU-intensive program, but it can still require a powerful CPU to match the amount of GPU power you may put into your system. We have seen diminishing returns with higher core count CPUs in the past, so the question is whether the 32 cores in the Threadripper 2990WX will increase performance or if you are better off with a lower core count CPU.
Blackmagic’s DaVinci Resolve is known for how well it utilizes multiple GPUs to improve performance, but is this still true with cards like the new NVIDIA Titan V? And do you really need a Xeon or Dual Xeon setup to get the best performance possible?
DaVinci Resolve has long been known to greatly benefit from multiple GPUs, but is this still true or has the recent launch of Resolve 14 changed things?
While GPU performance is often the first thing that comes up when configuring a DaVinci Resolve workstation, the CPU is in many ways even more important. Modern CPUs from Intel and AMD can have up to 18 cores, but can DaVinci Resolve actually make use of them all?
