[Rob Tinworth]"Resolve manual specifies QuadCore macpro. Can Resolve run on my system?"
Generally speaking, they mean it when they say it, but sometimes things do run in spite of our best efforts.
Lite will probably run if you can find a card that they like -- 5770 or better from ATI, and GT120, 285, FX4000, 4800 from nVidia -- can't go wrong with what's recommended. This version is limited to two nodes, no Noise Reduction, and speed is completely subject to your system. Resolve has nothing to do with FCP performance, it is all about CUDA cores.
