I was just wondering if anybody is using Premiere Pro CS5 on one of the latest Mac Pros (4,1 dual quad core Intel Xeon 16GB RAM) with any of the Mercury engine supported NVidia cards? The Mac I have currently has the ATI Radeon HD 4870.
I know the GTX 285 is supported but I since read on one of the Adobe forums that Apple had discontinued it?? Is this correct? I can't seem to find it in stock anywhere.
Will I have to go up to the Quadro FX4800 which is over $2,000AUD?
Just trying to get some user experience from anyone in a similar situation/setup.
Thanks for all help/knowledge,
I'm using the GTX 285 on my early 2008 Mac Pro. Works great. Apple switched from nVidia to ATI in the latest Mac Pro, and it looks like the supply of nVidia cards for Macs has pretty much dried up since then.
....Apple switched from nVidia to ATI in the latest Mac Pro,...
Wonder what a conspiracy theorist would make of that.
Maybe Apple is feeling the heat of the Adobe blow torch on FCP
