    Advice on a GPU upgrade to the Nvidia Quadro K5000

    Splurj Level 1

      Hi, do you mind if I get your advice on a GPU upgrade and the Quadro K5000? I'm thinking of getting one, and no matter how many 'increase AE performance' videos I watch I can't seem to fix the really slow preview times I'm having in After Effects CC when working with Trapcode plugins that I'm trying to explore and failing. Do you think I'll see an increase in performance with a new GPU especially when working with Trapcode plugins? Some people say that the GPU doesn't improve performance at all and it's just the CPU's.


      I have a 12 core Mac Pro 2012, with 2 x 2.4 GHz 6-Core Intel Xeon processors, 64GB RAM, 3x solid state drives, but I think it's my standard ATI Radeon HD 5770 1024 MB graphics card that's letting me down.

      Please help.

      Thank you.
