Resolve GPUs bench

Hardware and Software

All the tests use DaVinci Resolve Studio 16.1.1
The Project is a Simple Timeline with 3 BRAW (4.6K) heavily graded
The results are in “fps” (frame per second)

  • Imac 2019 – Core i9 8 cores 3.6 Ghz – RAM 64 GB – Pro Vega 48 8GB
  • Hack X299 – Core i9 12 cores 2.9 Ghz – RAM 32 GB – RX 5700XT 8GB
  • Hack X299 – Core i9 12 cores 2.9 Ghz – RAM 32 GB – RX 5700XT 8GB & GT 710 2GB
  • Hack X299 – Core i9 12 cores 2.9 Ghz – RAM 32 GB – GTX 1080 Ti 11GB
  • Hack X299 – Core i9 12 cores 2.9 Ghz – RAM 32 GB – GTX 1080 Ti 11GB & GT 710 2GB

With the Dual GPUs, only one is used for compute with Resolve and the other is only for GUI

The Test Results

What I learned

  • The Old and Expensive (more than 800€ a year and half ago) GTX 1080 Ti is the best with FHD timeline
  • The Very expensive (RX 580X + 540€) Vega Pro 48 is almost as powerful as the RX 5700 XT
  • The RX 5700 XT (450€) is the best for UHD timeline
  • For AMD GPU, the GUI has a small impact on performances
  • There is something definitely wrong the NVIDIA web driver ➧ You need a dedicated GPU for the GUI
