Interesting Jose... Peter posted a while back that Resolve decodes the ProRes to get RGB for each pixel for each frame before it starts doing any other math... so a 4096x2304 ProRes should be no easier than 4096x2304 DPX, disk read speed aside, or perhaps 4K Red, RR card aside...

I tested 4096x2304 ProRes422 and playback is reasonable...I noticed it choking up on render though. Very interesting in terms of shopping for displays for the mid-to-long term, since we'll probably see some new Mac Pros, GPUs, and maybe even a new OS in a display lifetime...

It makes me curious about the complete order of operations for Resolve though: For example does blanking/masking happen before color and blur, and therefore save you some processing? Does input resizing save you disk read speed, etc...
