DaVinci Resolve

DaVinci Resolve GPU Requirements


DaVinci Resolve is among the world’s most advanced video editing, finishing, and color correction suites, so in order to maximixe its advanced features and functionality, users must carefully select hardware suited to their specific needs.


2GB – Limited 4K work.
4GB – Minimum for comfortable 4K work.
6GB – You can tackle pretty much everything..
8GB+ – You can actually tackle everything.


DaVinci Resolve is an amazing and powerful piece of software, however just installing the software does not constitute a workable system. Resolve is one of the most resource intensive applications you can use and will bring any unprepared system to its knees.

DaVinci Resolve CPU Requirements

DaVinci Resolve is GPU heavy, Although all decoding is still CPU bound and whilst a multi GPU system is required for 4K work a decent number of CPU cores is required to decode the footage.


10 Cores – Limited 4K work.
20 Cores – Minimum for comfortable 4K work.
32 Cores – You can tackle pretty much everything..
44 Cores – You can actually tackle everything.

4K & 5K FOOTAGE

For optimal 4K editing or grading sessions, We recommend a machine with two or more GPUs. Decompression and compression processes make use of your system’s CPU. Heavily compressed codecs will require a machine with many CPU cores in order to finish these tasks in a reasonable amount of time…

RECOMMENDED SPECS;

DUAL XEON 12 Core 24 Threads
64gb DDR4
3x GTX 1080 Ti 11gb
SM961 512gb PCIe SSD
Decklink Mini Monitor 4K

6K & 8K FOOTAGE

If you’re working with 4k stereo footage or, specialty projects that require interacting with ultra-high 8k resolutions or beyond, then you’ll need a system with capable of a variety of advanced configurations from multiple GPUs, abundant CPU cores and additional slots for high speed storage.

RECOMMENDED SPECS;

DUAL XEON 22 Core 44 Threads

PCIe Expansion

Expanding the PCIe bus outside the chassis can be a very cost effective way to add more GPU’s. There are limitations however e.g., Every motherboard and os has its limits and hoops. If ever in doubt just ask us first.
