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
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.
Thanks for the feedback guys
It depends but personally I try to stay away from ATI.
nVidia Cards are very usefull, cos they are reliable to work with. Also CUDA supports Adobe softwares, 3Ds Max and Maya very well.
MAC use more ATI…so PC use NVIDIA…
