    AMD Radeon HD 6990 vs Mercury Playback Engine

    Cadillacula Newcomer

      I just installed an AMD Radeon HD 6990.

       

      I am using Adobe Premiere Pro CS5.5

       

      My Mercury Playback Engine "GPU" choice does not show up in Premiere.

       

      I tried the hack.

       

      Nothing.

       

      I see my card is not listed in the http://www.adobe.com/products/premiere/tech-specs.html list, however older and less powerful models from within its same family are.

       

      First of all, do I need to upgrade to CS6 to even enable Open CL type cards? And if so is there a chance the hack will then work?

       

      And if upgrading is the only Open CL answer - is there a way to upgrade from CS5.5 to CS6 without getting involved in the creative cloud kookiness?

       

      Thanks for any and all insight - I simply want to edit footage within Premiere while utilizing my more than adequate GPU.
