Probably there have been threads like this before ( but I didnt find any tho). I’ve had an old card ( 8800 GT) since forever, it did its job great in premiere and ae but it just “died” now and I’m looking to buy a new csrd. I’ve had my eyes on an ati ( amd) radeon 7850 and a gtx 670, but dono wich to choose. Amd lacks CUDA support but,as I understood, in CS6 is support for Open CL as well as CUDA, but I work in CS3 most of the time. Dont know how AE CS3 will react to a Radeon 7850, but I love the card, is more sillent, cosumes less power compared to the gtx 670 (that one is a behemot compared to the 7850), and it does well in games and 3D applications as I’ve seen in onlin reviews but there is no mentioning of premiere and after effects. So guys, I need desperatly some opions/advice if you will :-)

I’m also not sure between ATi and nVidia. I always had ATi and I love their cards, but I’d like to try cuda in AE in the future. For now only thing I know for sure is that it will be Asus DirectCu model, these are best built imho. And they look MASSIVE.

adobe has a collaboration with nvidia so if you are mainly using adobe software you should go with nvidia.

I’ve heard that for adobe products you want to avoid amd, cpus and gpus.

As of right now the ATI driver for my 5770 is completely screwy with Cinema 4d. And the new beta patch doesn’t address this. Other than that, ATI has been very good for me.

I’m sure Nvidia is fantastic too and seems to be the card of choice for many people.

nVidia Cards are very usefull, cos they are reliable to work with. Also CUDA supports Adobe softwares, 3Ds Max and Maya very well.

That’s not true, new iMACs are equipped with NVIDIA graphics. I’m using NVIDIA Graphic Cards all my life and they are much more than great.

If you want to stay in business then use NVIDIA.
