Sorry to ask - I can't find anything conclusive for this question and I've been searching for an answer above. I've check this forum (among several others) and have found some answers, but none of them really conclusively answer my question.
I'm looking to buy an 2013 imac 27inch
and I'm primarily going to animate and video edit on the machine - I just don't know if it's really worth spending the extra cash on the NVIDIA GeForce GTX 780M 4GB GDDR5 or settle for the standard NVIDIA GeForce GTX 775M 2GB GDDR5?
Any help anyone?
The GPU doesn't matter much for After Effects itself. If you're using Photoshop or Premiere Pro or some plug-ins like Element 3D, then GPU matters more for them.
The more VRAM, the better, though, so I'd personally go with the card with 4GB.
Details about how After Effects uses the GPU are here:
Todd - thanks buddy - that's kinda what I was thinking, so it'll be that one!
