ellen, you're not stating the kind of material you're grading.

Apple Pro Res 422 and H,264,
Not too difficult.
Since the first tip worked for the new commands in advanced with skip timing, my deep suspicion is it is not a video problem, but a deep coding problem in the newest version of Resolve 2.5.1 with some kind of timeout call threading thing. I think I need to post this in a new part of the forum also, because I am not so sure it is just a graphics card problem anymore.

But as I mentioned, the more input the better. Its a really serious issue.
Thanks so much

greetings from sad old codger on UK east coast

using macpro with el captain 16 gigs of ram

please could somebody recommend a graphics card which will run with resolve 12.5

evey little bit helps as still getting over the shock of not needing a moviola to edit or chinagraph and tape splicers.

I'm having difficulty with Playback on Resolve on my computer. Here are my specs.

Intel 3.2 GHz i5 Processor
24GB RAM
2GB Nvidia Geforce GT640 Graphics Card

I looked on the list and I did not see the GT640 mentioned so I'm assuming that it is capable of running Resolve.

What am I missing?

Just to be sure. What it'smean?
Will these cards not suitable as GPU, or as UI device?
I have nVidea Quadra 400 (which is "unsupported legacy" device) and Radeon Sapphire R9 380; can I use them booth with monitor connected to Quadra and Radeon used as GPU?

Yes, if you use the "unsupported" one for GUI only. Be aware the you might start to mixing old and new and different drivers and you might be in uncharted territory...

Thank you!
And again, to be sure: will in this case video memory be limited by the lower amount, or memory at the UI and GPU cards will still independent?

no, of your GUI card is NOT used for computation, it will effectively not count.

Just found this out the hard way after upgrading to 12.5 and building two sequences in 4K, can we reinstall 12.3 and still open (and utilize the older NVIDIA cards) and the projects we saved in 12.5? Or can we back save the 12.5 projects to 12.3? Thanks for your help!

Projects saved in Resolve 12.5 cannot be used in 12.3.

I am in the process of setting up a Dell Precision W7600 as my Resolve editing and grading machine. The Dell came with a Quadro 4000 with 2.0 support that should be supported in 12.5.3. But aside from that, does it make sense to keep this old card for the GUI and combine it with a new GTX1080 or would it be better to toss the Quadro and use the GTX1080 for GUI and for rendering as well? Or would it even be better to get two AMD RX480, one for the GUI/GPU, one just as GPU? I am working with BMCC raw as well as ProRes422HQ UHD and h264 UHD footage.
In case it matters, I am intending to buy a Decklink Mini Monitor card to run an EIZO CS2420 as HD preview monitor.

Best regards,
Helge

Dwaine, I checked the list you refer to and the list of the supported cards aswell but my NVidia K3000M is not in either one.
Would you by any chance know whether or not this card is supported in Resolve 12.5?

It uses CUDA 3.0, so should be supported

This may be slightly off-topic, but I need help. I have a Dell Inspiron 17R N7110 running Windows 7 64-bit. DR 12.5 wouldn't run because I only have the standard Intell HD Graphics Family card. However, I've found out that my laptop supports a NVIDIA GeForce GT 525M (Discrete) card. This card is NOT on the list of cards that won't work.

So, I have two questions. ! Will this card indeed run DR 12.5 and 2 will DR 12.5 work with Windows 7 64-bit Home Premium, Service Pack 1?

Thanks for your help.

Windows 7 is no longer officially supported so it may work, but if you have any issues BM aren't likely to fix them.

As to the GPU, it should work, but bear in mind that the GT525m is very low end so performance will be poor

I have also noticed that nVidia 425M & 580GTX, even though they load normally, there are a lot of bugs, especially in the color correct area after save/load. I noticed that when in a project filled with 8-bit image sequences, I imported a 32bit EXR one. All the corrections went haywire on the 12.5.6.

Hello Dwaine,

Although I don't get it why BM has to put so much resources restrictions on resolve since other professional software like premiere pro work on much more flexible configurations, but anyways, after i followed a lot of your threads I found that my FX 580 won't work on version 12.5 because it is CUDA 1.1.

Well, what if I can't upgrade my graphics card at this time, which is the most recent version of resolve that will work with my card and where can I download it?

Well it's included in the list you provided with a CUDA 1.1 as I mentioned earlier, so it must have worked with some version of resolve. I searched but I couldn't find information about each version of resolve supports. Also, how can I revert to an earlier version of resolve?

Your help is much appreciated.

If you are talking about the list I linked to in the first post in this thread, there are multiple cards in that, that don't support any Resolve version.

My comment was that none of the cards in that list support Resolve 12.5. That doesn't mean all the cards in that list are supported in any earlier Resolve version.

Earlier Resolve versions back to 10.1.5 are available on the BMD web site in the Support area for Resolve/Fusion.

Hi guys,

So I have an NVidia Quadro 3000M graphics card, in an HP Elitebook Pro 8760w Notebook that runs on Windows 7 Professionnal. I saw that the Quadro 3000M graphics card is in the Cuda Legacy GPU list, but it has 2.1 compute capability. So shouldn't it normally support CUDA hardware acceleration with resolve 12.5 ? I updated the driver, but I still get the Error message saying no hardware found that supports CUDA acceleration etc.

Thanks for your help.

I would expect that should work.

What NVIDIA driver are you using? Please don't say "the latest".

Hi,

I have a macpro mid 2010 5,1 48 gb ram
I am running a Nvidia GeForce GTX 580 with driver version: 10.17.5 355.10.05.45f01 and Cuda driver version: 8.0.90

This config is working great on 12.5 but my Davinci 14.0 does not work.. was trying to find if this card is the issue..

Many thanks

The GTX580 does not have CUDA Compute Capability 3.0 or higher, which is what Resolve 14 requires.

You can try selecting OpenCL GPU processing mode in Resolve Preferences Hardware Config. This may or may not work with the 580.

You can get into the Preferences Menu from the Project Manager page by pressing the CMD key and the comma key.
