I am thinking about getting the 5K imac with the i7 4.4 GHz quad-core and AMD Radeon R9 M295X 4GB GDDR5, but my big concern is that the video card is not Nvidia and does not use cuda core.
I currently have a late 2012 imac with the 3.4 Intel Core i7 and a Nvidia GeFroce GTX 680MX 2048 MB and sometimes it is very slow when working with a lot of effects or layers.
1. If you have any experience with the 5K imac, please let me know how you like it?
2. Was Apple going to the AMD video card a good or bad thing?
3. Do you think I would benefit any speed gain with the new 5K imac and by what percentage.
The AMD video card is not a good hardware selection with the current media content creation software. Open CL is still lagging behind CUDA in performance and the CPU's did not change with the new Imac. So basically it's a new Imac with a updated video card and 5K screen. Not something I would suggest for Adobe if you already have an Nvidia solution.
