Resolve - installing the 2nd card to a Win7 PC - understanding configuration guide
on Jul 22, 2012 at 2:07:08 am

Just tryng to understand a little more about the configuration guide for Windows 7 and Resolve.

I have a Quadro FX3800 running Adobe CS6 ( perfectly) as well as a BM Decklink SDI card ( perfect as well).

To run Resolve Lite (for HD exclusively). ..do I just need to add any of the recommended cuda cards to a suitable slot?

Does this mean that the Nvidia Driver (latest) runs both cards for their different purposes ( GUI and Processing).

I also assume that the card that does the processing function is not connected to anything else??? (or does it need configuring in that way)

At a certain point I had one of the processing cards I have connected to a second monitor. While the about screen would say that I only had 1 gpu the gpu monitoring utility would show that all three were used during resolve sessions.

Get yourself any GTX gaming card that fits your power configuration..
It boosts your performance (as in nodes in realtime) by 10

Windows 7 PC 24GB

I have now installed a GTX670 4GB SC Card

I made the decision to install that as my Primary Card because Premiere uses the same card simultaneously for GUI and Video Processing. (unlike Resolve). I use Premiere more than Resolve.

By itself that improved Resolve perfomance although I still got the message that Resolve would "prefer" a second card.

I then re installed the FX3800 Quadro card without any connections and no additinal driver installs apart from what Windows supplied.

WEindows and Resolve recognised the 2 graphics adapters (no message).

So next step will be to get a higher performance GTX to replace the Quadro. ie.More cuda cores and more memory.

You can also wait for V9 as that has an option which provides much better performance with a single GPU.
