    quadro and tesla (sorry for saying ) sucks

    moshe_daly

      i have installed the tesla and the quadro 4000

      and the AF recognize them

       

      but, and here is the big but

      i dont see any acceleration in the AF rendering time

      maybe its not mean to be a rendering acceleration card

      and maybe i need to return it to the seller (2200 $)

       

      also in premiere i don't see a different when i use the cuda acceleration or the gpu only

       

      i think adobe and nvidia has made me (and more like me),  spend a lot of money for nothing.

       

      and if there is a different its minor and not worth the money (quadro (4000 for me) and tesla c2075 cost over 2500 $)

       

      and one more thing, b@h said that the tesla is a special order item and there  policy is not to accept returns for it.


      well if anyone think else i will be glad to hear from you

          Moshe,

           

          Can you run  the PPBM5 Benchmark test and submit your results. That will clearly show whether the Maximus configuration works as it should, or not.

            Dear Mr Harm

             

            First thank you for your quick answer

             

            I can see where the ppbm5 test is  takeing me

            if i disconnect the quda, the project render is slow down alot.

             

            but this is not the problem

             

            in my machine i have the quadro 4000 an the tesla c2075

             

            if you remember i had a problem, that my motherboard didn't recognize the tesla.

             

            so i installed the computer without it, and render an AF project (with the quadro alone).

             

            the project took approximately 50 minutes of render time.

             

            Later I have resolve my problem (of the tesla) by changing the pci rom priority from legacy to uefi.

             

            i have reinstall the tesla and it drivers, and reload the same project of AF and unfortunately it's the same 50 minutes of render time.

             

            so why do i need the tesla for ?

             

            thank you

              Did you change the Rendering for the Comp to Ray tracer?

                  After Effects doesn't offer the same type of GPU acceleration that PP does.  You may have unwarranted expectations here.
