    New NVIDIA GeForce website.

    RaceGuy Level 1

      I anticipate that this new NVIDIA website will prove useful for Adobe PE users who run the fine NVIDIA GeForce graphics adapters in their computers for video editing.  I have found NVIDIA to be one of the more cusutomer oriented tech companies out there in recent years, and they make some pretty darn good graphics cards.

          It seems my graphics card (GeForce 8800GT) has finally reached its last update

           

          Latest WHQL version for newest cards is 262.99, but Series 8 is stuck at 260.99. Ah well, it had to happen sooner or later.

            I'm running a GeForce GTX-260 in my newish HP Intel quad-core i7 with 12 GB RAM, and while NVIDIA is providine fairly steady driver updates for this card series, I am still having crashes with PE9 and cannot determine it it's the graphics card or something in the PE coding or Win 7 x64 OS that is causing my frustration.  I disabled all the 3-D capabilities on the card and that seemed to perhaps help a little, and have already gone to fully turning off my Norton Internet Security Suite and LAN network, disabling Win 7 x64 screen saver and as many of the Services running in the background that Black Viper suggested I could safely shut down, as well as most of the other things suggested on this Forum but I still get unexplained crashes with the very large 3 GB+ HD video files I routinely process and render -- maybe I should consider a 400 series NVIDIA GTX graphics card but I always end up chocking on the cost of the dang things.  Anyone else here having any better luck with other NVIDIA cards and PE9?

              I've convinced myself that PRE9 is not correctly identifying video cards and their capabilities.

               

              I've reached this conclusion because of:

              • The ridiculously slow rendering of the timeline thumbnails when you use either the scroll bar, or PRE zoom slider.
              • The disappearance of both GPU Effects and GPU Transitions. Both of which only become available if the card supports GPU.

               

              In both of these circumstances PRE7 was a dream. Timeline thumbnails redrawn in the blink of an eye, all GPU effects/transitions available.
