Great news. Q1 of 2012 for release. You will be able to move between Mac or PC with the same copy but of course it is a single license.

Re: Blackmagic Design Announces DaVinci Resolve for Microsoft Windows

Dang, you beat me to it. I just came here to start a thread because I'm ecstatic about this. I already have a uber powerful HP Z800 (12-cores) with a Quadro and BM Decklink Extreme 3D. All I need is the Wave control surface and another GPU.

One concern I have.....well, the only concern I have is whether a regular nvidia Geforce card will work with a Quadro. The way Windows handles GPU drivers is different from OSX (from people I have spoken with, installing Quadro GPU drivers is a major PITA in OSX). In OSX, you can use a Quadro with non-Quadro cards but Windows is different.

One area that Windows 7 definitely trumps OSX is being able to output 10bit through Displayport on certain Quadro cards such as my FX3800. I already enjoy 10bit through Premiere Pro CS5 to my Eizo CG243W and I would love BM Design even more if they enable Resolve to output 10bit through a Quadro GPU.

For serious GPU power with Resolve, people can now build PCs with 5 GPUs (single slot) and still have room for a Raid controller and a Decklink card. Or you can use the onboard Intel Raid (or the onboard LSI SAS raid in the HP Z800) and the UltraStudio Pro via USB 3 and fill up all PCIe slots with GPUs (up to 7 single slot or 4 double slot GPUs). Eat you heart out Apple!

I hope this also means that Resolve will accept XDCAM EX files in mp4 wrapper, since this is what we use daily for our productions.
