    GeForce Graphic Cards....

    Chenboonping Level 1

      I heard someone says that the latest Geforce Video card...Can support the latest OpenGL 4.4

      I want the "Notebook GeForce GTX 880M"....

       

      It's seems that AE's playback can get smoother and the render engine can get more better......

       

      But....Is it true????

      Can GTX 880M really support OpenGl 4.4 ????

      Because when i check through it didn't says

      it only says it can support "CUDA" and "DirectX 11"....

      http://www.geforce.com/hardware/notebook-gpus/geforce-gtx-880m

       

      And if it have OpenGL .....how do we check it...

      *For Example,We want to check the amount of RAM...we can go to the properties of computer...

      but what about checking the openGL????

       

      Can anyone please tell me.....

          AE uses OpenGL 2.1, so which GL levels the card supports beyond that is irrelevant. The rest is just plain nonsense. Unless you tell it to AE won't use OpenGL for final rendering and previews don't get smoother just because you have a better graphics card. There is a million other factors to this.

            Nope. As Mylenium says, AE uses the GPU for very little.

            Other than acceleration of the ray-traced renderer (which is now obsolete thanks to the inclusion of Cinema 4D with After Effects), the only GPU-related concern you should have is with third-party effects such as Element 3d that may happen to use the GPU.
