I've seen the graphic card list recommended for the Mercury Playback Engine. Everyone wants to know if their card will work. The GTX285 made the list. I have a GTX280. Do I get CS5 and cross my fingers? Some tech evauluation would be great.. for instance.. "don't even try it cause it will it crash and burn" or "it will work OK but you'll have a 15% reduction in performance."
Moved from CS5 FAQ Forum. Renamed.
You will have to wait until after the launch. Details will follow soon.
Anybody in the know doesn't tell and anybody who tells, doesn't know. That is a consequence of NDA's.
Grin... I am sort of in the same "wait and see" group... except mine question is "will MPE offer any benefit to non-HD work"?
If an nVidia 285 at $400 does nothing more for SD-to-DVD over a $100 ATI... I will just buy an ATI and save $300
If the 285 does offer rendering benefits for SD only editing... I have to weigh the cost-benefit for me
So... wait and see (read) when CS5 is released
