I Finally got my video card for my new rig . Found a great deal for the Zotac GeForce GTX 780 Ti OC
The only thing now is optimizing the GPU acceleration.
I would like to believe that I have performed the cuda hack correctly, but a few things leave me unsure.
I used this site to perform the Cuda hack. http://www.studio1productions.com/Articles/PremiereCS5-2.htm
GPU Hardware acceleration is enabled on Premiere, and no GPU errors occurred since it was already left on this setting.
I haven't tried it on CC or CS6 yet since most of my projects are on cs5.5 at the moment, but i will soon.
I do notice that rendering is a little faster, but seems to only shave off 5-7 minutes from 25 minute render times. Benchmarks all over the net, including here, seem to imply that times could increase by as large as a factor of 10, but I haven't seen anything close. The GPU load is also averages about 10% with spikes up to 80% whilst rendering.
The number one thing that has been disappointing is the playback. Under heavy graphics on the timeline, my videos are still unplayable. I expected this when I had a radeon 6790, but not with a gtx 780ti that has cuda cores.
Anyone have any ideas on what I could have done wrong?
CPU i7 4930K @ 4.5 GHz
Motherboard: Rampage IV Extreme
Video Card: GTX 780ti OC
PSU: Seasonic 1050w Gold
HDD: Samsung Evo 500GB
Other Hard drives amount to 7TBs in total, Unraided
Windows 7. 64 bit
So do you suggest I raid the boot disk? Didn't think I would need to, it's already really fast. Aren't SSDs usually standard for boot disks?
I have 4 HDDs
and 1 500GB
I plan on making some HDD upgrades for raiding purposes. But I didn't think that my current HDDs would be the major reason for the poor performances of the card to such an extent...
Well thanks I guess. I'll try buying a 3TB for Raiding and see how that goes...
