Premiere works firn with the Quadro FX 4800 in Windows. But I bought a Tesla M2090 and it loses all power. For example a video cannpy be displayed on the monitor screen and if you try to play it on the porgram window, it freezes the whole application. It has to be killed.
I wonder if anybody ever tested this card. It passes all tests (the M2090) from the Cusa Toolkit.
Maybe somebody knows a utility to test the Tesla and see if it really works as expected.
I can open a technical support ticket if it makes sense.
Update: I moved the Quadro FX and Tesla to a MAC, there is no advantages on speed when exporting a movie. Isn't Premiere supposed to work faster with a Tesla on Mac as well. That is what they told me in tech support. The M2090 does not work in Windows, and in a Mac is not taken into consideration, I guess since Nvidia did not write a Mac driver for this card and it still uses a generic CUDA driver
I am despondent over this. Adobe support gave me wrong information.
It is explicitly stated Tesla C2070/2075 and a Quadro card only to achieve a Maxumus configuration, not a very old FX card. Given the limited number of CUDA cores in the Tesla card and the limited bandwidth, the first Maximus results are far from appealing. A Quadro 6000 + Tesla C2075 (€ 6000) is slower than a GTX 570 for a fraction of the price (€ 270). Talk about BFTB.
From the documentation I have found about the M2090, for a whopping € 4800, it requires Windows Server 2008, is still based on the Fermi architecture and has the same number of cores as a 580, but less bandwidth.
I'm afraid that both Adobe and Harm are correct on this one:
That M2090 is for server use only. It is not meant for workstations. What's more, Tesla does not work well with any pre-Fermi Quadros - but that FX 4800 that you have is actually older than the Fermi Quadros. In fact, the FX 4800 is essentially the same GPU as the obsolete GeForce GTX 260, with its 192 CUDA cores.
