Puget Labs Certified

These hardware configurations have been developed and verified through frequent testing by our Labs team. Click here for more details.


In DaVinci Resolve, QuickSync 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.

If you are not sure which hardware choice is right for you, we recommend reading through the Recommended Hardware section. And as always, don’t hesitate to contact one of our technology consultants if you require assistance or a hardware configuration that is not covered by our recommended systems.
