im on an 8 core macpro - 4,1 (2.93ghz Nehalem), with an older ATI 4870 (512mb's)
PP CC works but there is no hardware acceleration so i dont get very far once i drop a few plugins on with the CPU's already maxing out. now with PP CC playing friendly with OpenCL will the "AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB GDDR5 " show up for GPU acceleration? i see thats its approved for "Windows" but not in the Mac list.
i was almost ready to get the Mac approved GTX 680 but now im wondering it the above 7870 would work decently.
hope someone can answer this. id hate to order the card only to find out it wouldnt work.
The Open CL so far based on reporting is as expected, not performing as well as the standard CUDA. If you have the ability, I would suggest the GTX 680 anyway. Otherwise wait for Adobe to refine their Open CL as they have the CUDA.
yeah, the GTX680 would without a doubt be great. do you know of any websites or forums that test all of these cards for PP to see comparitive performances? was hoping the non cuda cards (cheaper) could get the job done.
thanks for you input!
