You're probably not going to see much of a difference in Cuda performance with AE even if you get both cards working. I would try a couple of different versions of the drivers and make sure that there are no other conflicts anywhere. Windows is notorious for allowing conflicts with drivers and software.
Your GPU is not on the list of those that provide CUDA features for the CS6 versions of the applications.
Todd, thanks for the reply. I do understand your answer about AR, however it should work on Premiere Pro CS6. According to the Adobe website, adobe.com/products/premiere/tech-specs-html. It is approved. It is not working on PP CS-6.
O.K. I need to return the card, and hopefully get my money back, and get a different card. That card will work on AE and PP CS-6?
Thanks, Bob van’t Riet, 805-528-8540
Todd, when I go into Adobe Search Support and enter NIVDIA K4000 and read five down up comes a Premiere Pro Work Area CS6 update for the K4000 card. Can you tell me more about this? Will it fix the PP and AE problems?
I have over $700ninvested in the card and I might loss it all.
Provide an exact link to any page on our website that you think says that the K4000 is one of the cards that Premiere Pro CS6 (6.x) will use for CUDA acceleration.
That card was added for the next version, Premiere Pro CC (7.x).
> According to the Adobe website, adobe.com/products/premiere/tech-specs-html. It is approved.
That is the system requirements page for Premiere Pro CC (7.x).
Todd, the K4000 is being returned to the supplier and my old FX3800 has be reinstalled. It is working fine.
I was confused by the Adobe website in that I did not note that Creative Cloud is now called CC.
The next question should try to upgrade the FX3800? Do you have a recommendation in the $500 to $1000 range?
I won't recommend a specific card.
I suggest asking on the Premiere Pro Hardware forum and looking at the GPU information here:
Todd, thank you for being so helpful.
I am a CS6 user. Upgrading to CS CC is not an option for me because we live in a remote area with very slow and unreliable internet service. Even our electric power is indeterminate.
In my video editing actives I make use of Adobe Premiere Pro (PP), After Effects (AE), Photoshop (PS), Illustrator, Media Encoder, Audition, Encore and Bridge.
I am not a gamer.
I have a good, not great, Windows 7 computer with an ASUS P6TD Deluxe Mother Board, an Intel 4 core i7 at 3.2 Ghz processor, 24 Gig of RAM and three Solis State Hard Drives.
Windows gives my machine a high seven except for the FX3800 video card which is rated at 6.9. The three year old FX 3800 with only one gig of memory is the bottle neck in the machine.
I am trying to find a more capable and contemporary graphics card that will work well with the applications I listed above. In my efforts to identify the card which would be effective in all of these applications I have gone to the Adobe CS 6 websites for AE, PP and PS. I have printed out the lists of “Supported Graphics Cards” and placed them on an Excel database for side by side comparison. Next, I looked for cards that would provide meaningful improvements over my current FX3800
By meaningful improvement I mean a doubling of capacities. Two or more Gb of memory, 400 or more CUDA cores and a clock speed of 500 MHz or more.
Fortunately, my ASUS P6TD Deluxe Mother Board can accommodate a double height card if the cooling fan is in the rear of the card so that the fan air is not blocked by the card below it.
I will be buying only one new graphics card. This card must meet the above criteria and be listed by Adobe as being supported for AE, PP and PS. I am finding very few choices. Additionally, when I do find a fit it is not a contemporary card and in most cases is no longer being produced. They are frequently not available at major suppliers.
Now what is a major supplier? Certainly there are many excellent suppliers but for the purposes of this Email I would like to define them as the ones I usually look at; Video guys, Newegg, Tiger Direct or B&H. In some cases they are still available on EBay, but that is not a suitable route for me.
Todd, one example is the GeForce GTX 580. This is the card you used in your demonstration video and it is common to all three application lists. However, this card appears out of production and is not available from the listed major suppliers. Amazon did have used and new units available use and new in the two to four hundred dollar range.
The GeForce GTX 780 is a powerful contemporary graphics card that is available at most suppliers. The PNY NVIDIIA Ge Force 780 XLR8 would be a very nice improvement to my machine, but it is not listed as a “supported” for AF, PP and PS. Would it work?
Finally, we have the Quadro 4000 and 5000 cards. The 4000 is listed as “supported” in all three, however the 5000 is unclear in the PS list. Both these cards are out of production and have limited availability. The capacities of the 4000 are not a significant improvement over the FX 3800 and does warrant the switch, however the 5000 could be a candidate. It has been replaced by the K5000 and is tumbling in price.
Todd, after spending a number of days looking into this subject it is my conclusion that the CS6 AF, PP and PP supported graphics cards lists are out of date. Most of the cards on the lists have been out designed and are out of production and have limited availability.
I do understand that Adobe Creative Cloud (CC) is receiving most of the development funding and CS6 is in a glide mode. However, for some of us CC is not a viable choice and we do need a contemporary graphics card to keep using the outstanding Adobe products.
May I recommend that two up to date graphics card be tested and added to the CS6 AF, PP and PS supported lists? May I suggest these two cards, the GeForce GTX 780 and the Quadro K4000 graphics cards?
Todd, thanks for taking the time out of your busy day to read this and please keep me on the right track towards getting Adobe to support these two contemporary graphics cards. If I can be of any assistance please Email me or call at 805-528-854.
