Which would get better performance in Resolve? Anybody try a 2008 with a Rocket?

ANybody have experience with either set-up and 5K? We have a GTX 570 doing the heavy lifting.

Red Rocket generally helps great deal in performance. Not sure eiter config is ideal. Why can't you stick the RR card in the 12-core box?

We just bought a lot of other gear, and budget is tight. So enough cash for one or the other.

If you're buying, I'd go with the beefier mac pro. Unless all you work with is RED footage. In which case I'd scringe desperately for more budget to get the beefier mac pro and RED ROCKET.

I would not invest in the Rocket because we will more and more non Red media in the future.
Also i find it cumbersome to grade "through" the Rocket as it ads a big delay when navigating the media.
The only benefit I see in using it is if you are doing HD dailies on a daily base and have to transcode tons of material.

What do you mean delay? Like editing? In the color tab?

if you scrub on timeline rr will make it to lag relatively a lot and it will annoy you really soon.
