Trying to figure out what type of GPU is correct for After effects CC (newest version)
What features of a possible graphics card can AE CC SOFTWARE use, some can use CUDA (Nvidia only), some Open CL (I think Nvidia and AMD) or Direct Compute (AMD only). Some can use more than one and different releases support different features so check that first or you could get the wrong card.
Looking to upgrade the graphic card from NVIDIA GeForce GT 635 to EVGA gtx 770 2gb if that card is proper
I know that the graphics card is inadequate for the video editing that I'm doing increasingly
i don't game at all
do watch lots of video and hulu
using Adobe creative cloud (Premiere Pro/After Effects/Photoshop) Element 3d plugin for AE
use after effects with digital juice products which contain dozens of layers and render short lengths of videos (usually 8 minutes or less)
thanks for any advice and tips on equipment.
here is my system:
Intel Core i7-4770 Processor 3.4GHz
Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (64-bit)
16GB DDR3-1600 RAM
500gb Samsung 840 pro SSD
1TB 7,200RPM Hard Drive
NVIDIA GeForce GT 635
See this for details of how After Effects uses the GPU:
Note that After Effects uses the GPU for very little. It uses CUDA only for one obsolete feature, and it sues OpenCL not at all.
