Lars,

Typically reviews show power consumption of the entire test bed and not the graphics card itself. The review does say that it's system power draw. Though you can always look at the change in power usage from idle and full load.


I have a gtx 260, made the edit, and premiere runs accelerated. Great! but I haven't actually used premiere too much but it seems it's pretty quick at using the accelerated effects. Source video from my canon t1i h264 mov
My comp specs:

Phenom II X2 550BE @ 3.7ghz
8 GB DDR3 @ 1333 7-7-7-30 1T

Is anyone using the 257.21 driver yet? Issues with the current update?

Is the 197.x driver still better to use? Where can i download the older driver from?

Downloaded it yesterday, but haven't had a chance to work with it.

What about After Effects CS5? Does this method activate the CUDA-cards for it, too?

NO, AE does not use MPE.

Hi Ozan,

You asked about the new NVIDIA drivers 257.21 WHQL.

I had been running the 197.45 WHQL drivers on 8 different systems. Premiere CS5 worked perfectly on all the computers.

I installed the 257.21 WHQL drivers on all 8 systems, then the problems began. Two of the systems are crashing on bootup, BSOD. A third system is having problems with Premiere CS5 with the 257.21 WHQL driver. It randomly crashes while using Premiere CS5. The other 5 computers are running fine.

All computers are running Windows 7 64 bit and have 6 gigs of memory. I am running several different models of video cards from NVIDIA in the computers. I went so far as to swap cards around and reinstalled the 257.21 driver several times and the systems that are having problems, still have the problems.

I have restored all the systems back to the 197.45 WHQL driver and ALL systems are back to running perfectly.

Hackintosh

I updated my hackintosh to 10.6.4 now my GTX 275 1792 MB works just find. I guess nvidia release a x64 CUDA driver in the new update ( x86 is some how missing) but Premiere CS5 works fine, i have around 90-95% GPU usage and around 50% CPU usage (Q6600@2,4) when i export something or when i play something. I have a 7 min screen capture at 1680x1050 and i tried to export it H.264 HDTV 1080p. Without GPU-acceleration it estimated around 60 min, i wait more than 15 sec and not even 1% done, when i change to GPU it estimated around 9-10 min and in a few second it has 5% progress :D. I'm a premiere beginner, i don't know much about it. Hope this help the people who want OSX. I recommend 10.6.4 it works just great.

This means that unless one performs the tweak to enable GPU acceleration I cannot recommend any of the GTX 4xx series GPUs for Premiere CS5 until Adobe certifies those cards. You see, at least with the 197.45 driver the GTX 4xx cards perform abnormally sluggish in software-only mode compared to older NVIDIA cards or ATi cards.*

*However, my finding is inconclusive because it is based on the single result in the PPBM4 table on an i7 system with a GTX 470 and MPE in software-only mode. The other results for the GTX 470 and GTX 480 all have MPE set to the GPU acceleration mode.

Randall,

Are you having any problems with GTX4xx cards with the hack and CS5 MPE in hardware accelleration?
I haven't had a chance to test them yet. What drivers have you used?

I tried a GTX 285 card today with the 257.21 WHQL driver. Now the GTX 285 is a "certified" card from Adobe but I ran into several problems when adding effects and it caused the MPE to crash.

All of the problem disappeared as soon as I went back to the 197.45 WHQL. I am giving up on the 257.21 WHQL driver and will wait for NVIDIA to come out with the next version.

BTW, I have tried the GT 240, GTX 250, GTX 260, GTX 285, 9500 GT, 9600 GT and a 9800 GT cards with the 197.45 WHQL drive and Premiere CS5 using the hack and have had NO problems what so ever. I even tried a 9400 GT with 1 GB of memory on a dual core processor and it worked. It really wasn't much better than running the MPE in software mode, but it did work.

I have only judged that based on my view of the performance list in the PPBM4 site. I do not currently own any NVIDIA cards with more than 512MB of RAM, which cannot run MPE in GPU-accelerated mode at all. And I do not have a GTX 4xx series card at all due to its cost that's much higher than I can afford right now. Because of this, I can call my findings as "hearsay" or "inconclusive".

By the way, the 9400 GT is the exact same GPU as the 9500 GT but with half of the G96 GPU's 32 stream processors disabled internally at the manufacturing level.

Randall, I should be getting my hands on a GTX470 this weekend to test it with the hack. I have talked to a few others who are using it with the hack and they said it running smooth and fast. They are using the 197.45 drivers. I plan on testing it with both version of the driver. I will post my results on Monday.

Uwe, have you had any problems with the CUDA enabled effects with the 257.21 driver? I had problems with a couple of them. Premiere would crash and give me an error pointing to the NVIDIA driver.

No, I just gave it a go again with the accelerated effects (3-way-color-corrector, RGB-Color-Correction, RGB-Curves, Sharpness, Gaussian Blur, Transitions...) - no freezing or crashing...

Thanks for the info Uwe. I haven't had a chance to try the GTX275. Glad to hear you aren't having any problems with it, with the 257.21 driver.

I am playing around with a GTX470 with the hack right now and it is working flawlessly with the 197.45 drivers. Tomorrow, I will try it with the 257.21 drivers.
