Resolve for Windows - GTX or Quadro cards
on Dec 12, 2011 at 5:27:20 pm

Hey everyone

I'm about to build a PC for Resolve. I've been lookin around to find pros and cons for these two kinds of cards. I'm looking at GTX580/590 or Quadro 4000. Does anyone have the golden answer on which to choose? And if i go for the GTX590, would one be sufficient for 1080p dpx grading?

Thanx a bunch
Mikael

gtx cards are most probably faster compared to 4000.

you should look into config guide.

Thanks. I've read the config guide :) To be more specific, i'm looking for hands on experience in speed and stability. Some say the Quadro is more reliable render-wise, while the GTX has more CUDA cores. And maybe someone even tried running DaVinci on a dual GTX590 setup.. Who knows?

Just step up make some tests and let us know :)

I guess there's a reason why the 590 aren't on the config list:
1) they may not have tested it
2) they tested it, but it doesn't give what you pay for


I have tested it with my PC at home. A modest i5 2500K, 8GB RAM and GeForce GTX 560 Ti. I was shocked at how well it can take both ProRes 422, 4444 and RED r3d from Epic.

This both excites me, but it's also scary how available this niche all of a sudden is becoming.

It was running on win then ?

Imagine the same card in expander.

Windows 7, yes. It was one GPU for both GUI and CUDA. That's what impressed me so much.

Thanx so far guys. I'm getting pretty optimistic about the gtx590 too. And drooling a bit when thinkling of an SLI with two of them :)

Guys,
I have two gtx580 in SLI config in an existing system and am thinking of testing the WIN version.
Is SLI useful for Resolve or are we better off to have separate cards?
Cheers

Resolve does not use SLI. It can use multiple CUDA cards without the SLI technology.

I try to install DaVinci 8.2 beta for windows. Everything is ok, BUT.
A have certified by BlackMagic workstation:
Z800
24 Gb RAM
Quadro 600 for GUI
GTX580 for cuda processing
Extreme for video out

The only thing, that I have real time debayering of RED files only in quad resolution. Is it ok? Half Good - 18-19 fps only.
Thank you.
