    Just got some info from a colleage, at his place they have an full DaVinci, turnkey system… and guess what… its not that fast at all…. BUT a very nice controller.

    DaVinci 8.2 Linux, 24GB RAM, 50TB NEXsan E18 10gbit/s
    with 1 Nvidia S4 2200 rack mount GPU
    Numbers of blur nodes in realtime: 24

    Without the Nvidia S4 (which is 4 Quadra FX 5800 cards in parallel) it does only 8 blur nodes…

    So time for BMD to open up for some other cards on the mac….

    Turns out that a regular macpro with cubix 4, and one redrocket and 3 GTX cards will do alot more…

    The S4 (4 x 5800) is a 2008/2009 configuration. The newer systems with faster GPUs are a lot faster of course.

    I guess you are making a lot of people REALLY happy with system audio.

    PS..Did you get my system details from the “other” thread ?

    Wait a minute…

    When you say, 11 nodes of blur, does that mean you are creating them manually by setting blur to max only ?
    If so then that is less stress the candle test does.
    I created with blurred mask blur nodes, those are almost double as heavy.
    Would it be possible to run the Standard Candle test on your side and post the results for the 8 versions, please ?

    here my latest tests on my trustworthy home system with Quadro4000 UI and GTX 470 GPU

    V1 2 nodes : 24 fps
    V2 4 nodes : 24 fps
    V3 6 nodes : 23 fps
    V4 12 nod. : 13 fps
    V5 NR 4 : 24 fps
    V6 NR 4 : 18 fps
    V7 NR 4 : 9 fps
    V8 NR 4 : 3 fps

    Resolve 9 seems to boost performance. I went from 12 realtime blur nodes to 16, ofcourse with the same setup.

    Pepjin, are you using a video output card or not? They tend to slow down frame rates..

    Hi Timo,

    You’re right, I didn’t have an output card by that time, but now I do, a decklink sdi.

    Just did the same ol test with v9b2 and I’m getting 18 nodes of blur now. Nice improvement!
