    Nvidia GTX 1050

    cjacs987654 Level 1

      Considering purchasing a dell xps 15 laptop with:

       

       

      NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1050 Graphics with 4GB GDDR5 vRAM

       

       

      Could someone tell me if this is tested with Premiere. I cannot see it on the list of recommended hardware although similar models are

       

       

      Thanks

            The video card will work, but more importantly, which processor and how much RAM?

            What type of video will you be editing?

            What effects will you be using?

              Thanks for your reply

               

               

              Processor: Intel® Core™ i7-7700HQ (Quad Core,up to 3.8GHz, 6MB Cache, 45W)

               

              either 16 or 32gb

               

              4k footage - various effects don't want to be limited

               

              Thanks

                Unless you're adopting a proxy workflow, that quad-core mobile CPU will become choked while trying to handle 4k editing directly. Unfortunately, there is no cheap lunch there, especially when the components that are needed to comfortably handle 4k can get very expensive. And there is now a newer version of the Dell XPS 15 that comes with a 6-core/12-thread i7-8750H CPU and a slightly upgraded GTX 1050 Ti GPU.

                  Hi

                   

                  thanks for your reply. I have ordered a dell xps15 i7-8750 6 core with 16gb memory (for now). thanks for your help

                    How do you like it? I'm circling the same waters. I'm debating on pulling the trigger or waiting to see what else will be released this Fall.

                      So far so good.

                        Good call, especially since what I suggested to you has a significantly higher all-core Turbo clock speed than your original choice: The i7-8750H you ultimately chose has an all-core (six cores, in this case) Turbo clock speed of 3.9 GHz while your original i7-7700HQ choice runs at only 3.4 GHz Turbo with all four of its cores in use.

                          Having a lots of CUDA playback issues (CUDA playback dropping off, black screen after few minutes) with Dell XPS 15 9750 with Nvidia GTX 1050 Ti.  I got it to work reliably with and older GeForce driver (397.93) which I can no longer install because Win 10 64 automatic updates.  The newer GeForce drivers  416.34 and 416.81 (compatible with Win 10 64 Built 17134) have CUDA playback issues with laster version of Premiere Pro CC (Version 13.0.1 (built 13). You can revert your project to Open CL mode which works reliably but much slower export/playback.  Really frustrating with a new machine....

                            After a few tries, the Nvidia installer let me downgrade to 397.93.  All is working well now.  So, buyers of the newest Dell XPS 15 with GeForce GTX 1050 Ti, beware!  Do not update to the latest Nvidia driver versions 416.34 or 416.81.

                              And also make sure you have Intel's driver .6373 installed.  Windows update loves to revert to an older Intel driver that doesn't play nice at all with Premiere.  All I can say is that Premiere Pro 13.1 CUDA support is VERY dependent on your Intel/Nvidia driver combination.  That is quite unusual as in the past, I found Premiere to be pretty agnostic to this.  I never experience so manu crashes and CUDA playback problems with previous versions.
