    CS5 Mercury Playback Engine Video Card Requirements

    FelixUnderwood Level 2

      Several nvidia cards are qualified for use with Adobe's Mercury Playback Engine. Has anyone seen or know of the performance differences among the cards? I'd pay for a 5800 in an instance, but not if the performance gain over a 4800 is only, say, 10%. Ironically, the 4800 is the card Adobe's been using to demo the MPE technology. And while I'm asking questions, I've never seen word one on how sophisticated the media drives need to be to get this eye popping performance utilizing the Mercury Playback Engine. I have 2 x 2TB Sata III drives in a RAID 0. Wonder if I'll have to add more drives and an expensive RAID controller.
