    2008 2.8GHz 8 processors. 6 GB of RAM Max playback speed with R3D is 17 FPS. On 2009 2.26 GHz 8 processors 6GB RAM you will get real time performance. Same GTX 285.

    Cool. You’re talking half-rez debayer, correct?

    I suppose either way I’ll give it a whirl on my 2008 and see what happens, and as money permits upgrade.

    Hmm… 17 fps with software-based R3D decoding makes me think I should be able to get away with using a 2008 Mac Pro with a Red Rocket with no problem. With color grades on several indie features lined up, we’ll run out and buy a new tower if we have to, but I’d really like to hold off for Light Peak and/or USB 3 on next year’s models.

    No, 1/4 Good

    Yes, with Red Rocket you’re good to go even on 2008 computer.

    If I were to contemplate changing my entire business model, workflow, and client presentation to accommodate BM Resolve, which would appear to require a complete hardware upgrade, then I would not be repeating the same mistake by making it Mac- based, because this is just going to be cyclic. The lesson that Microsoft found so hard to absorb — forcing everyone to buy new hardware every time they revised their Window operating system, is simply being repeated by the Apple corporation. Unfortunately, in my market, I don’t anticipate any support– and certainly not of the calibre commensurate with the price tag associated with the Linux system– to justify that investment, either.
    So for me its a **Pass**. Thanks, anyway.


    You mean “Old Ben”? Ben Kenobi?

    I hear what you’re saying, this hardware upgrade hurts my pocket a lot, I have a first gen intel! But specially since I have to buy a Decklink, which most likely I’ll have to ditch after they announce support with Kona (wish they’d have done that from the get-go) But even a Resolve at $2000 is an incredible opportunity. To me this is a hardware upgrade worth doing, you’re not doing it so that iTunes can load faster, your getting real time color correction with sound on a mac, that’s a huge leap in my services, but hey, less competition for the rest of us!

    glad to see that people are waking up to the fact that this new order davinci is really not the free ride home we have been led to believe……i mean seriously, a grading suite for a thousand bucks……just finished comparing the cost of my new color suite to the equivalent resolve suite…with the money left over i can buy myself a nice new laptop as well…..and i’m sure there will be more than a few hints at IBC with regards to apple upping the ante with fcp 2010 or whatever it’s gonna be called!
    i would love to have a nucoda or baselight for ultra high end work but 95% of my income is generated from my little color room, and it’s paid for!
