    Mercury GPU Acceleration problem


      I have ATI RADEON HD 6750M and Mercury acceleration is greyed out. I'm running 10.6.8. Does anyone have a fix?

          Mercury acceleration works only with certain NVidia graphics cards, other than in one or two specific Macs. 


          So the answer is to buy a new NVidia graphics card - preferably one on the list of approved cards, which Adobe publishes in their information about Premiere Pro.


          It is possible to make almost any NVidia card work with Premiere Pro - provided that it has at least 1 GB of memory.  There is a simple, well publicised "hack" in which you add the name of your card to a list in a Premiere file in your "C:\Project FilesAdobe\Premiere Pro CS6" folder.




          Oops, sorry!  I have just realised from your post that you must be referring to a Macbook!  In which case forget my second and third paragraphs.


          Check the list of Macbooks which do offer Mercury acceleration.  If yours is not on the list, I am afraid that at the moment you cannot get the acceleration.

            Supported AMD graphics cards for GPU acceleration


            • AMD Radeon HD 6750M (only on certain MacBook Pro computers running OS X Lion (10.7.x) with a minimum of 1GB VRAM) 
            • AMD Radeon HD 6770M (only on certain MacBook Pro computers running OS X Lion (10.7.x) with a minimum of 1GB VRAM)


            Your 6750M is listed, but you need to update your Mac software to at least 10.7
