Hi,

I must be missing something here, but I can't get realtime playback, with no nodes, with either Red 5K or 2K FS700 Raw. Here are the system specs:

2014 MacPro tube
Processor 3 GHz 8-Core Intel Xeon E5
Memory 16 GB 1867 MHz DDR3 ECC
Graphics AMD FirePro D700 6144 MB
Software OS X 10.9.2 (13C64)

GPU AMD FirePro D700 x2

DaVinci Resolve 10.1.2
DeckLink Studio 2

Resolve Hardware settings:
capture and playback: DeckLink Studio 2
GPU Processing mode: OpenCL
use display GPU unchecked

You're not going to get it to play back in full-res, but it should play back at 1/2-res or 1/4-res. Jason Myres of the LiftGammaGain site did some extensive tests on Resolve and the nMP's, with the results here:

Definitely not going to get Full resolution playback of 4k or 5K with any application right now other than Redcine X Pro with the GPU Debayer. However 16GB of ram is really low for a 8 Core system and 4K+ media with 2x GPU's to feed data. I highly recommend you take that to 64GB if you really want to make any real use of those D700's and the 8 Core chip. 32GB of ram would still be to small if the D700's were ever really pushed with 1 CPU which right now is not going to happen. However applications change and as they do that may change as well.

Try Resolve 10.1.3 and use the "Use GPU for Red Debayer" setting in Resolve Preferences - Video I/O and GPU area.

Since you are on a new MacPro, make sure you have CUDA 5.5.28 installed before you attempt to run Resolve 10.1.3. If you have updated CUDA to the current 5.5.47, Resolve 10.1.3 will not launch.

Also, if you remove CUDA from a new MacPro system, Resolve 10.1.3 will not launch.

You can get CUDA 5.5.28 from the NVIDIA Driver Download web site. Here is a direct link to the file location:

Those are AMD cards though. I would assume the Open CL support is native to the AMD drivers.
