Mercury GPU acceleration

I running Premiere Pro CS6, using a Quadro 2000D by PNY GPU.   When I go to project settings to enable GPU acceleration, Premiere won't allow me to change the renderer settings - its darkened and set to software only (as if I don't have a compatible GPU.)


Any ideas on what might be the problem?

    Windows or Mac?


    How much memory on the card?

    According to x that has 1 Gig of video ram


    So... is that card in Adobe's list of supported cards?


    If not, have you performed the hack?


    I think I saw another message that CS6 requires a driver update... have you updated your nVidia software?

    You may be better off downloading directly from nVidia.


    And if I recall correctly, there will be two drivers you need to install for the Quadro.  The normal display driver and a separate CUDA driver.

    I have just purchased nvidia quadro k2000 and this also suffers from an inability to enable GPU acceleration in premiere cs6

    I have the latest version of premiere.

    The card appears to be supported according to the nvidia website, but isnt explicitly listed on the adobe site as far as i can see.

    I was under the impression that the k2000 is an updated 2000 but i am beginning to be concerned.

    Can anyone help?

    Here's the problem:


    The Quadro K2000 is not an updated Quadro 2000 per se (since the two GPUs use completely different architectures - Fermi for the Quadro 2000 versus Kepler for the Quadro K2000). However, the Quadro K2000 is simply a lower-clocked GeForce GTX 650 (non-Ti) with lower memory bandwidth than the GTX 650 (64 GB/s for the Quadro K2000 versus 80 GB/s for the GTX 650).


    On the other hand, Premiere Pro CS6 has not been updated since the current 6.03 version came out back on September 27. Therefore, GPU acceleration is disabled with the newer Kepler Quadros by default. Search the forums for "CUDA hack".

    Thanks - the hack worked a treat.
