Adobe Forums: Pr CS5 - List of supported CUDA Cards

Sorry, I didn't realize that there would be copyright issues. Here is a link.

Thanks for the link, looks like I might have to ditch my ATI 5850 afterall.

I would test first what your experience will be with CS5. Maybe then you will decide that upgrading to a new video card is not all that urgent and you can wait for the new Fermi cards to be certified. That would be my approach.

Jarred Capellman April 19th, 2010 05:39 PM

I was able to sell my 5850 for the exact same that I bought it for and picked up a GTX 480 to replace it, albeit for a good bit more.

from what I read in that thread IF someone is just editing video without filters ie multi-cam 2 camera switch. A CUDA supported card wouldnt really do them much good as long as they have a -7 processor thats really what counts right? They only need the CUDA card for effects?

Definitely the best approach..... Harm, I don't see any reference with CS5/After Effects that it utilizes CUDA. Is CUDA strictly for the benefit of Premiere?

The support for the GTX 480 is meant for Q3 so there is a little wait to fully use the card.

Marty, yes, the hardware acceleration of MPE is only for Premiere. Believe me, I would be the happiest person here if After Effects could utilize CUDA acceleration.

True, but I knew my 5850 wouldn't keep it's value until Q3 :)
