Thank you RjL190365, it seems to work very well in After effects after updating (trial version) and GPU is loaded in a constant way in final render also ( I reach 1241 costant max boost and 96% of gpu load in gpuz, my gtx 680 is overclocked (1150/1652/1202 with some tweaking also in dinamic clock table)).
I have no reference with other graphic card but it seems a very good upgrade for AE.. Now I hope for PPPro 6.0x and gtx 680 adobe certification!
I just received an update for both After Effects CS6 and Premiere Pro CS6 in the Adobe Application Manager. I downloaded and installed both, and discovered that the new GTX 680 is not only supported, but is also "officially" certified for After Effects' RayTracer feature as of this After Effects CS6 11.0.1 update. Unfortunately, one still needs the CUDA "hack" for the GTX 680 for Premiere Pro CS6 6.0.1 as the cuda_supported_cards.txt file remains unchanged from the original release.
The files have not yet appeared on the main updates page.
I just want to remind users about this.
Man, that came fairly quick. Two weeks or so after release?
Yes. The updates are now up on the Adobe site. And so soon after original release because the original CS6 6.0.0 has been occasionally crashing on me when I load some of the projects.
At the moment, the GTX580 seems to be faster in AE CS6 raytraced Renderings than a GTX 680...
Would like to see more tests...
Hi Markus, I have found this thread : http://forums.creativecow.net/thread/2/1019120
And the test scene on my system took 5,38 minutes on a gtx 680 OC.
My pc specs:
I7980X @4 GHz with 24 gb, ssd 240 gb corsair Gt
Interesting thing is that AE uses gtx 680 at the maximum boost clock and gpu is full loaded always over 90%
Gtx 680 specs:
base clock 1150
boost clock 1202
mem clock 1652
some tweaking in dynamic clock tabel (up to 1251,2)
over 70°C boost clock is constantly at 1241
Sorry all for big off topic here!
edit I have seen now you have found it before..

I've just switched over to Premiere and want to buy a graphics card. I work on a mac (Snow Leopard) and have the CS 5.5 edition. Any recommendations for easy set up?
I'm not Fabio, but I can tell you that Macs are extremely limited in the types of graphics cards that are officially compatible with. There are no current GeForce GPUs that are currently compatible with any Mac (the last one offered was a GTX 285 for mac, which was discontinued almost as soon as the GeForce 400-series GPUs were introduced back in 2010). Currently, you're stuck with either a very expensive Quadro 4000 for Mac (this will cost you about $900 for just one card) or the stock ATi/AMD card that came with your system (which is currently not officially supported at all with GPU acceleration in either Premiere Pro's Mercury Playback Engine or After Effects CS6's RayTracer).
and what about cs 5.5.. i wonder if its going to be officially supported as well?
Sorry, but After Effects CS5.5 does not support GPU acceleration outside of the normal OpenGL engine. Thus, any GPU that supports OpenGL 2.0 or higher will have partial GPU acceleration, but most of the rendering is software-only.
As for Premiere Pro CS5.5, no new updates will be released since Premiere Pro CS6 is already out.
1. RjL190365 states "Yes. The updates are now up on the Adobe site". I assume he means an update stating that the GTX-680 is officially supported (by AE-only?), but none of the Adobe tech-spec CUDA-support charts I found have it yet. What are we to understand?
2. Ein-Freitag states "At the moment, the GTX580 seems to be faster in AE CS6 raytraced Renderings than a GTX 680..." Is this based on the GTX 680 run with a MB having PCIe 3.0 capabilities?
