    Looking to upgrade my old 3g radeon card and was wondering if resolve takes advantage of the RTX cores like premiere pro does?

    I know more vram is always better but budget wise do you think I could get away with a RTX 2060 6g card while working on 4k footage? Maybe even work on it in 1080 and render at 4k if necessary?

    Good info in this video here.

    "Blackmagic's Davinci Resolve: The worlds most popular colour-grading application, using Turing Tensor cores in Resolve 15 to accelerate AI inferencing for graphic enhancement. While we cannot discuss specifics the use of the RTX series of nvidia GPU's will improve the everyday experience as related to many aspects of resolve operation"

    So fairly vague but it seems it will do something.

    and 6g is pretty limiting for UHD or DCi4k rendering, you will have to give up on many temporal effects

    Yeah sadly the price jump is crazy. 599 AUD for the 2060 or 999 AUD for the 2070. A bit much. Might have to shop around for the older cards with high vram and give up RTX. I was hoping RTX might make up for it.

    nothing makes up for a lack of Vram in Resolve land... either you have enough or you don't, it's a light switch.... makes no diff if you have more than needed, but if you cross the treshold of need Vram and you don't have it Resolve will do the digital version of pukeing on your shoes

    11g is workable for UHD/4k, 16g better, 8g is possibale but a bit painful expereince and node cacheing will be needed, 6g seems a non starter, but given the trade off's of 8g i'd even prefer not to even start down that road...
