We’ve currently got a 2019 16″ MacBook Pro with 2.3 GHz 8-core Intel i9 processor, 32GB memory, 1TB SSD and AMD Radeon Pro 5500M and our machine crawls with Resolve Studio 17. Below are screenshots of a typical tiny project with minimal noise reduction, film emulation plugin and film grain. 3.5 FPS is typical for both playback and rendering speeds with ProRes 4444.
