Re: Is this disturbed or what?

Couldnt that be because when Vegas started with gpu acceleration, it was with the 5XX series GTX? You should try some newer graphiccard. My GTX 670 is accelerating certain fx which is supported and also some plugins which are supported. But for rendering, it is to no help at all..
Havent had a crash since 4 month ago. And when that happend, it was a plugin causing it.

Anyway, I look forward to a graphiccard which is 100% compatible and have better performance then the old ones...
Like the new 780Ti or R9 290X..

Re: Is this disturbed or what?

Kim, did you ever get a chance to try out that 290?

Re: Is this disturbed or what?

Im sorry Ian Stark, I didnt have the guts to try it out.

I did buy the Gigabyte GTX 780 Ti 3GB VRAM, and hoping Vegas will do a big reconstruction in Vegas Pro 13....
Also in "Sony Creative Software forums", I saw someone didnt have such great experience with the R290X...

If Nvidia is sucha powerfull graphic card for Photoshop CC, AE CC, Premiere Pro CC and so on, why couldnt Sony give their suite the same benefits...

I think Sony will reinvent their next suite.

Common, the fastest GPU for VP for now is GTX570 !!!!! =/ Thats a two year old graphiccard...

/happy editing!

My AMD XFX HD 6970 2 gb work really well on my system. I have no problem with V11 or V12 and GPU Acceleration and timeline performance is excellent. 3930K @ 5.0Ghz 64gb ddr3 quad 1866mhz..

Re: Is this disturbed or what?

I havent had so much time editing lately..

But I will in the coming weeks...

Of course I will share with my experience. But from the few hours I have used Vegas pro 12 this far, I havent had a single crash. Neither have I seen any performance boost compare to my older nvidia gtx670. But I keep in touch.

Re: Is this disturbed or what?

Apparently according to benchmarks the AMD R9 290x is kicking the nVidia Titan's butt for half the price.

Re: Is this disturbed or what?

. . . but it runs extremely hot and very noisy so I have read. It certainly does seem to be a far better card (for the money) than the Titan but I think I am more interested in the 780Ti if it's quieter and cooler. My objective now is stability. Period.

Kim yes all these cards including all the Geforce cards is designed for gaming so yes benchmarks reflect games but here in two with more than games...

Re: Is this disturbed or what?

Very interesting reviews, Nicholas, thanks for posting.

Still nothing to show performance and stability (or lack of!) while editing complex multi-format projects though ;-)

I've had an astonishingly good year so I might just try them both out!

Re: Is this disturbed or what?

Competition is good for innovation, glad to see AMD giving nVidia a lesson in affordability. I need to upgrade my gfx card in the near future so I'm looking at my options. Buy a Titan @ +/- $999 or a R9 290x with comparable performance @ $560 or two R9 290x in CrossFire @ the same price as a Titan? Choices.

I already link the first url in my previous post...

The second link only show the 780ti in syntetic benchmark for compute performance (I doubt any of us will by if for crack some passwords or care for unusable graphs) and how it performs in bitmining and have none real world application truth.

There is a guy in sony vegas forum bought the r9 290x, but didnt sems to be all that despite the graphs from anandtech..
Faster render? Well maybe for some container/format but what about accelerating live time editing performance?

I will test out my 780 ti soon and I will also test it for VP13 in near future.. great to see some realtime performane benchmark for r9 290x for VP12

Re: Is this disturbed or what?

Keep us posted Kim, would like to hear about your experience with the 780 Ti. Sometimes I wonder if GPU Acceleration actually makes a notable difference in renders or if it's more a CPU orientated process. Considering the price of a decent graphics card I probably should have considered getting the Intel i7 4960X with 64Gb of Ram instead.

Re: Is this disturbed or what?

That would be true...

A six core cpu with 12 threads is a 100% bet of performance boost to your editing software, in both rendering speed and faster project preview framerates.. and a higher cpu clock is equal to more horsepower!

But for application from adobe, gpu acceleration is a lot more effective. If adobe can, Sony can..

So hoping much from VP13...

And from my view of point, 4930k for half the price over the 4960x, would be a better buy. Just clock your cpu for yourself.

Of course I will return with more numbers and information about my experience with my Gigabyte 780 ti.
