The GTX cards tend to give much greater performance at a fraction of the price.
Thanks Todd. Now, for example, is GTX 690 (using mac here), supported by CS6? (Since I plan to use CS6/CC in future).
Also, what do you think will I have better workflow with this GTX690 for example, then my existing one in CS5.5?
See the system requirements page for what cards After Effects CS6 and After Effects CC can use for specific features:
See this page for details of how the GPU is used:
This is ridiculous. There is almost nothing supported for mac
That's a conversation that you need to have with Nvidia and Apple, not Adobe. If Apple and Nvidia provided drivers and support, we'd test and support them.
ok, let's forget cs6/cc for a moment here.. Let's speak hypotetically, you have CS5.5., you want to improve workflow, you have $1500.. What GPU would you get for yourself?
I would ignore the GPU.
Spend your money on RAM, CPUs, fast disks (especially SSDs). Only after you have maxed those out should you even think about the GPU for After Effects. It is nearly irrelevant in comparison with these other factors.
