Tesla card in Maximus not being used

Jul 29, 2012 2:22 PM

Tags: #pro #nvidia #premiere #cs6

I spent a few thousand dollars buying a Quadro 6000 and a Tesla M2090, but the later inever gets used at any time by Premiere CS6. I tested the usage with the command below and the GPU and memory is always zero, when playing back, when exporting, etc. The card is simply ignored.

Is there something I am missing? I am exporting a 45 minute video for Youtube only with acceleted effects and it takes about 40 minute to generate the file. Sould it not take much less time?

    Do this.

     

    Turn off hardware acceleration in PP and export again.  If it takes longer, then all is well, hardware acceleration is working properly.  If it still takes the same 40 minutes, then something is wrong.

    The test will determine if hardware acceleration is actually in use.  I don't trust metering tools to tell the whole story, as I've seen some that suggest no acceleration is occurring when I know for a fact it is.

    Tesla M2090, but the later inever gets used at any time by Premiere CS6

     

    Return it and get a refund. The Tesla M is for servers only and requires Windows Server 2008 as an OS. It is not supported with Windows 7 and will not work even with the 'hack' applied.

     

    The only Tesla that will work is the C2075 and for the meager amount of an additional € 2300 (that is in addition to the Quadro card) it will give you ZERO, NIL performance improvement over a € 400 GTX card. And that is only in single CPU systems, because Tesla will not work in dual CPU systems, if HP is to be believed.

     

    Results of Maximus solutions with Quadro 6000 + Tesla C2075 (for only € 6000) are no better than a single GTX 560 Ti for around € 240. The only situation where these €€€ may be well spent is if you need 10 bit output for your € 2000+ each monitors.

     

    Is there something I am missing? I am exporting a 45 minute video for Youtube only with acceleted effects and it takes about 40 minute to generate the file. Sould it not take much less time?

     

    Transcoding is purely a CPU matter. There is no acceleration with CUDA enabled cards, apart from scaling, blending and blurring. All the rest is only CPU dependent.

    I dont think you will have surprised anyone here by your findings.

     

    How did you dig yourself such a deep and expensive hole in the first place.?  I am assuming bad advice from an equipment retailer.

     

    Fact its a hobby is even more startling to me!

     

    BTW - I hope you are not pointing the finger at Adobe or Nvidia for this?

     

    Adobe / Nvidia put up the specs and you ran off with the ball seemingly without any foundation or research.

    If I can suggest a GTX 670 card (with 4GBs onboard)   plus the GTX285 may easily satisfy you once you lose the rest of the "stuff"

     

    Throw the two in together ...using the 285 for GUI (monitoring) and the 670 in for 1334 core  CUDA power (no monitors).

     

    IMHO : Best Adobe support will be found in this forum - including the Hardware Forum.

     

    We have Users plus the Adobe lead guys playing around here.

     

    These guys listen and contribute.

     

    Adobe Support is not highly regarded here at a solution level.
