Intel has released its latest Xeon W-3400 processors, featuring up to 56 cores and eight channel DDR5 memory. Are these new processor enough for Intel to take the performance crown from AMD for content creation?
Intel has released its latest Xeon W-2400 processors, featuring up to 24 cores and quad channel DDR5 memory. Although the W-2400 is not as powerful as Intel’s W-3400 line, it is expected to compete well with AMD’s lower core count Threadripper Pro processors for several content creation workflows.
Intel has announced their latest Xeon processor families, including the W-2400 and W-3400 lines. While there is still several months to go before the sales embargo, we are able to give a preview of how these processors perform in various content creation applications.
The NVIDIA RTX 6000 Ada is the latest addition to the NVIDIA’s professional family of GPUs. With cutting-edge hardware and the latest Ada Lovelace architecture and 48GB of VRAM, this GPU should be terrific for a wide range of content creation workflows.
The RTX 6000 Ada is the first of NVIDIA’s Ada Lovelace professional GPUs, and we are excited to see how it stacks up in DaVinci Resolve Studio against both the previous generation RTX cards and their competition from AMD.
With the RTX 4070 Ti joining the RTX 4080 and 4090, NVIDIA has now completed the launch of the initial trio of their GeForce RTX 40 series of GPUs. How do these cards compare for various content creation workflows versus the previous generation RTX cards, and their competition from AMD?
The RTX 4070 Ti rounds out the initial trio of NVIDIA’s GeForce RTX 40 series GPUs, and we are excited to see how these cards stack up in DaVinci Resolve Studio against both the previous generation RTX cards and their competition from AMD.
Intel’s 3 NUC 13 Extreme is a highly compact PC that is still capable of hosting high-end hardware like an NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4080, 64GB of RAM, and multiple M.2 NVMe storage drives. The question is, do you sacrifice any performance with thee ultra-compact NUC 13?
Following the success of the initial launch of their 13th Gen processors, Intel is now launching the Core i9 13900KS which is the first CPU to be capable of hitting 6 GHz at stock settings. But will this make any real difference for content creation?
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.
