You need NVidia to have CUDA for P-Pro 5.5
Find the "balanced system" article at Tweakers Page
So then what about my current AMD Radeon HD 6700 Series?
Does this mean Adobe cs5.5 has never been able to use it in the first place?
The new card I'm getting is a pretty popular editing card, suprised that they didn't shelve out AMD card support until CC considering their quality.
Ok well my Nvidia Back up options were the Geforce GTX 970 and 980s. I'm still having trouble finding out if it's within range of Cs5.5 capabilities or not. Or if I need to go lower due to potential compatibility issues. I'll keep checking out the tweakers page incase I find the answer.
Of course Premiere Pro can USE an AMD card, just not for CUDA
Yeah, but CUDA seems to always be more ideal than without, according to the tweakers page. So i will be going the Nvidia route then. Unless you have reasons in favour of AMD lol. I was talking to one of the Customer Representatives over at Nvidia and they said the the GTX 970 is compatible with Cs5.5.
My only worries about it is that the CUDA scores on the GTX 970 are significantly lower than that of lets say, the older GTX 780. But is it naive to say that the GTx 780 is better than the 970 because of that? This is asked with editing purposes in mind.
The customer rep did tell me however that she recommend that I go with the Quadro line since Nvidia doesn't recommend any Geforces for editing programs, something I was oblivious to until now.
But I feel that it was more based on Salesman tendencies, rather than the models she recommended being better, like The Quadro 4000 and the 5000. Apparently from what i've been able to make out so far, those are corporate grade cards, which are more expensive, but barely worth the price tags.
