    I've been editing natively in REDCODE RAW on small to medium sized projects for years now, however some big improvements are being worked on with RED and Nvidia.

    Jarred has teased this, but if you were at Adobe Max you got to see a small preview of what I think is on track for a Q4 2018 release.

    That's an older i7 6-core system with the newer Nvidia RTX 6000 GPU. And yes that's full debayer as you can read on the closeup.

    Imagine what you can do with a more modern system :) Heck and maybe a couple of GPUs for that matter.

    That is crazy! Maybe I should just buy a GPU and not even upgrade my old i7 six-core.

    Is there any info on how the gamer cards (2080/ti) will handle 8k r3d?

    Too early to say i would have thought. That RTX6000 is a $6k card right? But if Red have managed to move debayering to the GPU then i wonder what performance is like on other GPUs and also whether it's full res or nothing or whether the code path allows for half and quarter. Because lets face it no one really needs 8K in motion, 4K is plenty..

    It's not adobe specific (they were running on RedCine X there) so maybe it will work with other cards and even Metal on a Mac.

    Looks good though!

    cheers

    Very nice! I thought RED was associated with AMD?

    If I recall correctly all current and previous generation cards will get a notable speed boost with this new tech.

    This is mainly a benefit to playback and editing R3Ds.

    This should benefit all apps that tap into the Nvidia tech. REDCINE, Premiere, Davinci, etc.

    Erm.... Call me the weirdo, but most of my work for several years is being delivered in 8K and just the concept of easier editing and general QC is a good thing for me on large and smaller 8K displays. To each their own. I'm just happy people are nice and comfy with 4K now as they "see it".

    So an i7-8700(for free) + a Quadro RTX 6000($6300) Vs. a 2990WX($1750) + Enermax 280 TR4 ($150) + 2 VEGA FE's($2000).

    Wonder what Shania Twain has to say to this.

    Not exactly. Lets wait until they push it out to see how it handles with the $700-$1500 GPUs. I'm on Quadro P6000s at the moment as I need the memory on card for various things I do.
