    4K Monitoring or 1/1 Playback in Full HD

    barker85 Level 1

      Hi there,


      I work with 4K R3D files and am considering upgrading my system to enable either:

      4K monitoring at 1/1 or 1/2 debayer

      HD monitoring at 1/1 debayer


      Currently, my system's output is 1920x1080 - mostly smooth at 1/2, perfect at 1/4.



      MB: ASUS X99-A

      CPU: I7-5930K (Asus Turbo setting)

      RAM: 32GB DDR4

      GPU: GTX 970

      Media: 7200RPM drives (considering setting up RAID)


      I'm not exactly sure where any bottlenecks might be...


      Any thoughts on what component upgrades are required for either option, or adequate system specs in general would be hugely appreciated.
