Resolve on the new Mac Pro
on Dec 24, 2013 at 7:50:30 pm

Has anyone had a chance to use the new Mac Pro with Resolve? Mainly using RAW footage?
I would like to hear how those two AMD's are holding up and if so what configuration MacPro you purchased. 8-core, 12-core?

I was hoping Blackmagic would have something on their site :(

thanks yo!

A few people who ordered stock configurations have gotten their machines today, but none of the build-to-order systems have been shipped out yet, and those (particularly systems with D700 graphics) are probably of more interest to Resolve users. I got in an other for a 12-core/D700 within 15 minutes or so of the store going live, and will report numbers when it arrives if they're not already all over the place by then.

It's frustrating (if predictable) that the media outlets that were given review systems seem to have no idea how to actually put a pro video system through its paces. I haven't seen a review yet where Resolve has been so much as mentioned, despite the fact that Apple itself features Resolve benchmarks for the system on their web site.

Yeah, I thought the same thing. I've seen a few sites post videos but only running FCPX 10.1. I was like ok, Start up resolve. I'm guessing BM will update Resolve for FCPXs' new XML. Hopefully the configuration guide release's soon after.

Yeah, still very little info out there. We have a 4,1 8-core with 3x GTX680s and a RR in a Cubix box - and I'm beginning to feel we should have bought a 2012 or 2013 12-core rather than hedge our bets and wait for new machines that, while obviously faster than an iMac, may not outdo the best of the old.

Anyone heard more?

Macs, FCP, Avid, Nitris DX, Color, HDCAM...
