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

Written on November 24, 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.

NVIDIA Lite Hash Rate GPU Performance

Written on October 26, 2021 by William George

In an attempt to make their GeForce line of consumer video cards less appealing to crypto miners, NVIDIA has updated many of their GPUs with "lite hash rate" versions. These are supposed to reduce effectiveness for mining of currencies like Etherium by about 50%, without impacting game performance or other applications, but to be sure of that we put a pair of GeForce RTX 3070 cards - one with LHR and one without - to the test.
