    Hello

    i am very new to nle and got PP 5.5, not sure if its an appropriate question to ask here, but still..... i am building a new station for my self now that will include:

    The Intel® Desktop Board DX79TO, I7-3930K, 16 gb ram, and i am kind of stocked with the video card, as until now i was ATI owner HD4890...... but it was stated that PP supports now nvideo cards...

    so i would like to ask what should i choose? GTX580 or 680 (seems like price is not much different) or Quadro ?

    there are some variations of 580 ... 1500mb and 3000mb - not really sure if its worth having extra mb at all, the cheapest 580 is about 420$ , but the 3000mb is about 550$ , and 680 also can be found in 500-600$ range...... so its a dilemma! quadro is a bit more expansive toy 700-900 but is it better then gtx series?

    from my understanding the more cudas u have the better..... also 680 is a fresh pci version....

    any thoughts?


    regards

    Hi,

    i would recommend the 680 related to CUDA cores, which will work nice if you do the cuda hack --> Mercury Playback Engine

    you can get the most Informations here: http://www.studio1productions.com/Ar...remiereCS5.htm

    as you can see in this article, the 580 will take just a few seconds longer to render your timeline... so if you want to safe your money i would go with the 580.

    better more cuda then memory ;)

    regards SH

    If I was you I would check the specs and requirements for CS6. ( You are bound to upgrade one day)

    I believe that CS6 utilises Cuda cores differently to CS5.5 ( ie uses more of them) ...so you may as well future proof your self some degree.

    any ideas where i can find that info for cs6? its seems to me that it will support the same as 5.5 , but also ati cards for mac users...

    the only thing is maybe Quadros are better to use now?

    Quadros are overpriced and underspec'd compared to gaming cards when it comes to the Mercury Playback Engine.

    Right now a good model would be a 560Ti with 2GB of memory. You can pick one up for about $210. The 570 and 580 might offer some slight improvement, but probably not enough to justify the extra cost.

    I had an NVidia and Adobe specialist show me the difference between using a GTX card and Quadro card side by side at NAB. The Quadro had much better performance than the GTX card when it came to using Premiere Pro. If I were the original poster invest in a card that will give you the best overall performance like a Quadro, Tesla or Maximus card.

    If the Quadro card had much better performance, it was because it had much better specs. (In short, not a proper comparison.)

    Given the same specs, the two will perform about the same. The difference is that the Quadro with the same specs will cost a hell of a lot more than the GTX.

    Given the same price, the GTX will always outperform the Quadro.

    there is also gtx 590, i believe its dual GPU, i read somewhere its two 580 inside..... but also from what i read it looks like it has some tech issues

    according to nvideo its best to use Quadro, but for some reasons they dont compare gtx at all
    http://www.nvidia.com/object/premiere-pro-cs6.html

    if to look at Cuda cores - again from what i heard the more the better, and GTX defiantly kills Quadros here....

    as i understand rendering is still done by CPU, so its maybe better to invest in good CPU...., maybe its better to buy 2 Xeon, but if say true never was there and kind of scared to step in

    I update my pc every 3 years and always kind of want to buy the best toy , but its hard to choose the Video Card, the rest of pc like Cpu, memory, mother boards - are easy to choose, but video cards are always pain in 1 place

    would be great to know the exact models they compared....

    about quadro + tesla together - i dont think its worth the money, according to that image there is some difference in speed but difference in price is HUGEeeee - http://www.nvidia.com/content/adobe/...price-perf.jpg
