Yes I've read that page - but the sources are kinda sketchy/non-accounted for and it is hard to see if/how any changes have been made since CS6->CC2014.
IE there are no tests showing the difference between the top AMD vs nvidia cards on a CC2014 installation.
Initial means just that. Example: R9-280X is more than 2 times slower than GTX 770 as tested on an otherwise identical system.
The 280X is just a rebranded 7970 though and while I'm in the dark whats happening under the hood in PPCC2014, you can clearly see that a lot of compute power is available on the 290X which surpasses even the Titan in several of these tests.
I was just hoping we'd see some improvements to the OpenCL implementation in Premiere..
Prolly go for the 780Ti then.
Better upgrade memory to 64 GB first or the 780 Ti will be stifled. See the table with recommended cards from the earlier link.
Used for gaming as well so I will go for the GFX first
R9 290 scoring really well with Neat Video though... ("the speed is among the highest GPU speeds we have seen so far. ") Hmm decisions decisions...
Nvidia cards always perform far better with Cuda than they do Open CL. There are currently not many applications where Open CL outperforms CUDA as well when both are available. Vegas is 1 of the few. So keep in mind those benchmarks are highly skewed in the AMD card favor and not exactly ideal to pull performance comparisons from for media applications. Since the Open CL or CUDA performance is specific to the implementation by the applications designers, the media applications themselves are really the only way to compare with.
