This setup is for Davinci Resolve 16 and this setup is much smoother than this same setup on my 2015 iMac TB2 + RVii. However, benchmarks and other scores are very very close. I may return this GPU and keep my RX580 as I'm not seeing the results I was looking for with Davinci Resolve. It seems the CPU makes more of a difference than GPU.
