While Intel's mainstream Core processors do not have as much raw processing power as their competition, they do have an edge when it comes to working with certain video codecs in supported applications: QuickSync. In the case of DaVinci Resolve, this provides hardware acceleration for working with H.265 based footage which other video cards cannot currently provide. Editors and color graders working with that codec can get great performance for a relatively low price with this platform.
