I have bought a GTX660, to get advantage of the Cuda acceleration.
I installed the card and downloaded the latest nvidia drivers; I also updated premiere to CS6 with latest update and hacked the .txt by adding my card.
Premiere recognize the card and enables me to go with the GPU acceleration, but I see little to no improvements in terms of rendering speed and playback.
I've tried to render a 15sec DSLR clip (with some basic color correction). It takes 1:14 with the GPU on, 1:18 with software only; playback is sloppy in both modes.
- ASUS P5QC
- 4x2GB DDR 800
- GTX 660
My OS and programs are on a SSD, media and project on other hard drives.
What am I doing wrong?
Your CPU is woefully inadequate for your media. Your money would have been better spent on a new motherboard, CPU and memory.
Keep in mind that not all things are GPU accelerated. Specifically encoding during export is not. Your CPU is probably still the bottleneck here. It's waaaaay past time to replace it.
Thanks for your reply. And your emphasis. I suspected it to be the problem, but thought that a cuda GPU might have helped. it's time for my six years old q9550 to go in the cellar.
