Linux is often considered the operating system of choice for power users, but does DaVinci Resolve actually perform any better in it than in Windows? Even if it does, is it enough to compensate for Linux’s much higher learning curve?
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?
The NVIDIA Titan V has many the features that are not useful in DaVinci Resolve, but it’s raw power allows it to give the highest single GPU playback performance of any GPU we have every tested.
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?
