DaVinci Resolve 16 Workstation

Configuration Recommendations

CPU / Processor

DaVinci Resolve 16 can make use of both the CPU and GPU to process visual effects including warp stabilization, color space conversions, blending, etc. Along with exporting, file encoding/decoding, rendering previews, Resolve 16 is a highly multi-threaded program, meaning it can make use of many CPU cores to significantly speed up many processes. Some tasks, particularly within the Fusion tab, are primarily single-threaded, meaning they will make use of a few cores at a time at their max operating frequency (value given in GHz). A strong video production CPU would be the Intel Core i7 9900k 8 core 5.0 GHz CPU found on the Orbital Silenced C2000. For Resolve power users, we would strongly recommend the Orbital C3000 Pro with an Intel Core i9 CPU with up to 18 cores, 36 threads at 4.5 GHz. Within Resolve, adding more cores and a higher operating frequency will usually keep increasing performance for its many multi-threaded tasks, but only to a certain limit. Adding more than 14-16 cores will generally not result in faster performance within Resolve.

Memory / RAM

DaVinci Resolve RAM recommendations: 32GB for 1080p workloads, 64GB for 4k, 128GB for 6k, and 256GB for 8k. All Orbital Computers Workstations are designed to be user expandable with non-proprietary memory modules; that way you can start with a lower RAM capacity to keep costs down and upgrade as needed in the future. All RAM used by Orbital comes with a manufacturer's lifetime warranty on parts.

Graphics Card

Choosing the right video card for Resolve is critical to maximizing performance. Resolve can make use of CUDA processing to dramatically improve encoding, rendering, and effects tasks. We recommend the Nvidia GeForce RTX line of video cards for Resolve as they offer massive amounts of video-RAM and CUDA cores and can be scaled up as needed to further increase your Orbital Computers Workstation's performance. The Nvidia RTX 2070 is a strong option for many video production workloads while keeping budget to a minimum. For serious power users, the Nvidia Titan and RTX 2080 Ti are the top of the line options. Resolve will generally make use of 2 to 3 GPUs to accelerate computationally heavy tasks so adding 2 or 3 GPUs will continue to increase performance.


For most Resolve workflows, we recommend at least 2 solid state drives - one for your operating system and programs and another for use as a media cache/scratch disk and a large traditional hard drive for long term video file storage. Orbital Computers offers the fastest NVMe PCI-e solid state drives with individual read speeds over 3,000 MBps to provide major performance boosts with tasks like timeline scrubbing, file transfer, saving/loading, and much more.


For most professional users, the Orbital C3000 Pro with an i9 18-core CPU and high-end RTX GPU is the recommended video editing workstation for Resolve. If your goal is to minimize rendering time, consider adding a second or third RTX 2080 Ti GPU.
