    What is the best graphics card for Premiere Pro CC?

    rheaborres Level 1

      Hi,

       

       

      We are looking at new graphics cards for our studio, and want to know:

       

       

      a. What is the best NVIDIA graphics card for Premiere Pro CC?

      b. What is the best AMD graphics card for Premiere Pro CC?

      c. How many GPUs can Premiere Pro CC utilize for processing?

       

       

      Lastly, do you have performance benchmarks for the program with these GPUs? Thanks for your help.

          For everything you want/need to know and a whole lot more, go to the tweaker's page ...

          Scroll down to the vid card section and go there after you get a general feel for the idea of a 'balanced' system. Though the vid stuff is a bit dated, the ideas are the same. Currently the Adobe stuff plays better with some of the NVIDIA chipsets than AMD ... though some of the newer AMD don't do too bad. Harm's point over there is that just going with the "best" anything ... if the rest of your system isn't up to that level of snuff ... isn't sensible. Or even always going to get you the best performance. You can buy a really hot-featured NVIDIA card for a grand or better only to find another one for $250 actually smokes that card in your system.

           

          Now ... some of the cards in general do work better, and hopefully someone else will jump in here, or ... advisedly ... search the forum for video card info. There's a LOT of threads on this already.
