After doing my due diligence...watching tons of YouTube videos with actual performance in DaVinci Resolve with real world scenarios...noise reduction being the most taxing on the system...I decided to take the plunge...

I've also ordered the 16 max but  i'm afraid the low M1Max GPU power with NR. Now with 2x6800XT on Mac Pro 2013 I get 23fps on Resolve C4K h265 timeline.

@artik, I am sure it will stutter dependent on NR settings...but I was getting that with my two Radeon VIIs...and that's with BRAW and heavy NR...but that plays back better than H.265 at the moment...lol...

@kai-the-film-geek, Nice! They are surprisingly efficient for mining. Best AMD card there is for this purpose.
