>have heard there are ways around this
Adobe uses limited resources to test products... if you want to tell Adobe to test & certify your card, go to https://www.adobe.com/cfusion/mmform/index.cfm?name=wishform
The GPU won't help at all with simple playback. That's all on the CPU.
Just go into the cuda_supported_cards.txt file and add it yourself.
Adobe only has so much resources to test cards and cant test every one out there.
The file is in your premiere folder.
Right click your link to Notepad and "run as administrator"
This way you can force Premire to use it.
Since its not officially supported some things might or might not work.
This file gets replaced each time there is an update so you might have to repeate each time.
Hope this help: GLenn
