What effect will having more RAM on a GPU card have for MPE (or even AE)? I noticed that EVGA makes a 1.5GB and a 3GB version of the GTX580. Other then the obvious price difference, will it improve performance? and in what way?
Only in cases where you use large images in pixel dimension you may notice a difference, because if all the VRAM is used, PR falls back to software rendering. Look here: http://blogs.adobe.com/premiereprotraining/2011/02/cuda-mercury-playback-engine-and-adobe- premiere-pro.html
Good to know! I'll save some money then!
Thank you! :-)
