What H.264/H.265 Hardware Decoding is Supported in DaVinci Resolve Studio?

Written on April 15, 2021 by Matt Bach

Davinci Resolve Studio supports hardware-based decoding for H.264 and H.265 (HEVC) which can significantly improve performance with these codecs, but not all "flavors" of these codecs are supported depending on the bit depth and chroma subsampling used. In addition, support can change depending on the capability of the hardware in your system. In order to determine exactly what is supported, we decided to do our own testing to see exactly what types of H.264/5 media has hardware decoding support in DaVinci Resolve Studio.

11th Gen Intel Core CPU Review Roundup

Written on March 30, 2021 by Matt Bach

Intel's new 11th Gen Core processors are here, with significant improvements including an advertised 19% improvement in IPC (instructions per clock), but with a drop in total core count on the high end. This makes it hard to estimate how each model will perform in the real world without application and workflow specific benchmarking and testing.
