AMD Radeon HD 7670M: no lag previewing HD video?

Aug 20, 2013 8:09 PM

Greetings, After Effects community:

I am considering a computer with a Radeon HD 7670M 1GB GDDR5, I believe. Will this be sufficient for previewing HD video without more than, say, 5 seconds of lag? Thank you!



P.S. I think previewing is mainly GPU-based, but if needed, I am running the Intel i5 3570 processor.

    The GPU has nothing to do with such matters in After Effects.


    See this page for what the GPU does for After Effects: n-after-effects-cs6.html

    RAM previews need to be calculated and while at times this may go quick, another time you may simply use heavy effects or other stuff that requires to be calculated first. There simply is no way to guarantee realtimeness for everything in AE, no matter how much resources you throw at it.
