I don't use Resolve. It's a great app but I need integration with Photoshop and After Effects so Premiere is my choice. Premiere's caching is more efficient on the CPU than Resolve so less stress and waiting to pre-render in the background.

If people want to edit 8K smoothly just change the preview settings down to 1/2 or 1/4. Premiere or Resolve will render a small proxy in the cache but the quality is still completely good. It's easy.

Copy. Premiere doesn't seem to utilize the GPU as much. You should try Resolve, you might be surprised. Smile

1/4 & 1/2 playback are definitely my friend for years. But its nice when you are stacking clips/adding effects to have that overhead. Plus, a nice real time preview fullscreen is really nice to feel the emotion of the edit without having to render and wait. 

Thank you! I'll report back and let you know what I find. 

To do: Create my signature with system and expected eGPU configuration information to give context to my posts. I have no builds.

Adobe is evil.

Switch to Affinity / Pixelmator / Davinci Resolve / Final Cut.

@ikir throw away your PC and Mac too. Go back to paint brushes and film reels if you want to avoid software companies who need to earn money.

Really Adobe is lazy, slow implementing features, slow supporting hardware but ask a lot of money. Affinity Photo is much more modern, fast and innovative, the same for Pixelmator. Those devs deserve support and money. Adobe not.
