I think a powerful GPU may be a waste of money for Edius.

Regarding these difficult GH5 23.976p 10bit 4:2:2 clips, I did a test today while monitoring GPU usage with TechPowerUp GPU-Z and found my GTX 980 Ti never showed more than 11% load in Edius WG. This was while struggling to play 3 layers in lowered resolution.

On the other hand the same 3 layers in Resolve Studio 14 played perfectly smoothly in FULL RES... FULL QUALITY!

Since both Edius and Resolve make ample use of my 8 core CPU I'm sure the huge performance gain using Resolve is simply that it's making much more use of my GPU peaking 72% load.

3 layers in Resolve on 8 core CPU?
Resolve uses CPU for 10bit 422 h264 files, so looks like Studio has to have good h264 decoder. There are no hardware decoders in any GPU for 4:2:2 10bit files.
Managed a screenshot while it was playing...

Can't the GPU just be used as a coprocessor. I think that OpenCL would work this way. Wonder if Resolve is using the GPU's in this way.

In my needs I only shoot 60P so to get UHD60P 10 bit 4:2:2 I would need to record to a Ninja Inferno which would be ProRes or DNxHR and for those I think would not be as difficult to deal with but more stress on storage with the bigger files needing a faster transfer rate.

1 layer CPU 35%
2 layers CPU 55%
3 layers CPU 100%

No optimised media or caching used, never needed it yet. Performance mode is also always OFF (so full quality). Yes, the clips are short, they are what Noa uploaded, just copied and pasted one after another. For 5 min clips I would need to shoot them myself when it's daylight.

I too sometimes think about upgrading my computer, but like others here wonder exactly what improvement I would get in practice for what may be some considerable cost.

Then the waste for my not so old expensive processor and mbo!

Reliability, safety and fan noise is uppermost in my mind rather than try for maximum cpu speed. I have not even attempted to overclock even slightly yet. Presently it run's quietly and reliably at it's basic 3.00 Ghz and I think I will leave it there, don't have a need to run multiple pip's of 10bit stuff. One or two will suffice.
