DaVinci Resolve and Multi-Core processor

PostThu Oct 04, 2018 4:02 pm

I use Adobe and recently purchased DaVinci. Adobe doesn't take full use of my hardware (AMD 2990wx 32-core processor, GeForce 1080ti, 64GB 2667 ram, nvme m.2 SSD drives) because it still skips while scrubbing timeline and some effects take forever to apply. I've heard Adobe doesn't take full advantage of these new multi-core processors.

Will DaVinci like my computer system? Or is DaVinci built to favor Intel or processors with 8 cores or less?

Still not clear at the moment

Long story short, nobody has a clear answer (BlackmagicDesign, Microsoft and AMD).

Hi.

In Resolve the CPU is used to run the app, disk I/O and compression and decompression of codecs.
Resolve does all its image processing in the GPU on the graphics card. More CUDA/OpenCL Cores are better.

When I think back on the reviews I read on the AMD 2990wx 32-core processor, do I remember that it is good to run many different programs at once, not to run only one single program. My personal feeling was, that there is a problem in Windows, as some few Linux programs scaled much better. But only time can tell.

Regards Carsten.

In general It's true Adobe favors fewer cores with higher clock speeds, and Resolve seems to do better at utilizing more cores.

However, when toy get int to the high core/thread count zone the answer always becomes it depends.

Some tasks simply can't be palatalized indefinitely.
