Hello everyone,

now that Resolve 10.1 is out officially and people are getting their hands on new MacPros, its time to update the Standard Candle.
A standard candle is a known source of luminosity .
It defines the distance of an object based on its magnitude
Here some more detailed information what it is used in astronomy :

I created a Resolve document that everyone can import and flick through the versions to see how much GPU performance their system has.
Please post the numbers and refer to this thread as a reference how "good" your system performs.
There is only one footage file used and it comes with the installer of Resolve and Resolve Light.
So the only thing you need to do is to use the "Change source folder" function to re-link to the file called "Tutorial -"

The project itself is HD with 100% default values , the footage is HD this time but again its not relevant for disk performance.
This test is designed to put stress on your GPU pipeline, so be sure you have enough cooling.
When testing please load VERSION 1 first, press play and check your FPS.
Lets it spool up an check out on what FPS number it settles in.
If it flicks between two numbers, go for the lower one and discard the .5
Press Stop and advance to the next version.
The TNR nodes will shuffle image around so there is no looping memory cache.

Here the results from our system.

Mac Pro 5.1
Processor 2 x 2.4 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon with 20GB
OSX 10.8.5
Display : Quadro 4000
GPU : Cubix Desktop with 3x GTX 680

V01 06 blur nodes 24 fps
V02 12 blur nodes 24 fps
V03 24 blur nodes 22 fps
V04 36 blur nodes 15 fps
V05 01 TNR nodes 24 fps
V06 02 TNR nodes 24 fps
V07 03 TNR nodes 13 fps
V08 04 TNR nodes 08 fps

Here is the link to the updated R10.2 version

Post you results and system specs in this thread and keep the discussion short.
If you can please do tests on OSX 10.8.5 and OSX 10.9.1 using the same hardware.
Windows and Linux specs are more than welcome as well :)

Happy testing !
