Finally Resolve working on Z800
Finally got our new Z800 running Resilve 8.2
We’d built it to the BM config spec but had issues with the Quadro 4000 card and the lack of 280.26 driver support.
We even ordered a GTX 580 3GB card as an alternative only to discover the config spec fails to mention the 580 card needs an 8 pin PCIe 2 connector and the Z800 doesn’t have one. So ones had to be ordered.
So back to the quadro 4000 board as the GPU and a quadro 600 as the GUI card. A link to the 280.26 driver from BM installed but still GPU warnings.
Then in the Z800 bios I found a setting against the slot 5 PCIe slot called compute. It’s disabled by default and the help states that if enabled the card won’t be available for VGA use but will be for GPU use.
And that worked.
Now have resolve working and even talking to the artist Color control surface.
Next step is to move the quadro 4000 card to the GUI slot and pull out the quadro 600 and install the 580 card in slot 5 as the GPU once we have the power adapter sorted.
We are then 3D ready.
Then install Media Composer V6 and a deck link card and see how they play together.
Will post more as we discover it.
