Re: Time to by a new GPU for VegasPro 11

I did. I just ran a test using GPU accleration on a Bluray project using Sony AVC vs Mainconcept mpeg 2.

Sony AVC was stupid slow with GPU on, Main Concept was about 15% faster without GPU. MainConcept was actually at a higher bit rate too and was still faster! Go figure.

Re: Time to by a new GPU for VegasPro 11

I've been reading this tread to see if it will help me make the decision to upgrade my Vegas Pro 10e to VP11. Is it worth the upgrade? I ask because I currently run Win Vista 64bit on a quad core machine and for the most part can do everything i need fairly quick. I like Jeff can run multiple sessions of Vegas while burning dvd's, printing, etc. I also do all of this with graphics on the mother board. However, I was reading about the GPU and how VP11 utilizes it and was considering the upgrade for $139 (through the end of the month). I was also looking at buying the GTX550 ti ($80 bucks) or GTX560 ti ($240 bucks) card. I just wanted to get the experts take on:

1. whether the upgrade is a wise move given my current setup?
2. whether to invest in one of the above mentioned GPU cards. If so, which one?

Thanks,
Troy

Re: Time to by a new GPU for VegasPro 11

Troy, just remember the GPU thing isn't working out for everyone. I'm having trouble with it and keep it turned off. But I just installed a Beta driver, and might try using the GPU feature again.

I wonder about which cards are best also, so I can't help with recommendation, but my GTX 460 SE is troublesome at this point, but some use cheaper cards than mine and are getting really good results.

Point is it can be a gamble, so just remember that before and after you spend your money. If your money is tight, just be careful. Personally from my experience I wouldn't but you might have really good luck.

Re: Time to by a new GPU for VegasPro 11

I agree Jeff. I've heard great things about the gtx560 card, and even wondered if it would help my Adobe After Effects renders. However, I think I will spend the money somewhere else like sd cards, etc. lol

Re: Time to by a new GPU for VegasPro 11

560 is certainly working out well for some people, and I agree with you it would probably be a very good choice.

Re: Time to by a new GPU for VegasPro 11

I was just about to post my friend's benchmark results with Vegas 11 and a new eVGA 560ti nVidia GFX card in his six core Intel i7. However, despite the eVGA GPU monitor showing 36% GPU usage in Vegas11 and 10% in Vegas10, the rendering times are the same with or without GPU-only selection. Even overclocking the GPU by 20% didn't change the result. Vegas 11 seems to do the same AVC encoding to mp4 file job (same project file) nearly 3x as fast as Vegas10. Is anyone else seeing this improvement ? I'm upgrading to V11 !
