    Optimizing 780ti CUDA for Adobe premiere cs5.5, cs6, and CC

    Fellow72 Level 1

      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?
