Best GPU for editing software - Page 3

post #21 of 28
Thread Starter 
I decided to go with the EVGA GTX 680 smile.gif But... I have no idea what is the difference between these three models:

- EVGA GeForce GTX 680 Classified
- EVGA GeForce GTX 680 SC Signature 2
- EVGA GeForce GTX 680 Superclocked

The only difference that I see is in the speed of MHz... and VRAM. But other than that there is no big difference between them. Which one should I choose ?

The EVGA GeForce GTX 680 Classified is the best one but its a bit pointless without the Ebot or whatever the name is
The EVGA GeForce GTX 680 SC Signature 2 is a EVGA designed card with 2x fans on it
The EVGA GeForce GTX 680 Superclocked is a EVGA designed card with a blower type fan on it

All 3 cards are ovcerlocked

I would pick the EVGA GeForce GTX 680 SC Signature 2 i fact i will order 2 cards for myself when the buyer of my old card pays up

Almost forgot the Classified has 4 GB of VRAM the 2 other cards have 2GB of VRAM

Why go with a 680 when it has gimped compute power? I'd pick up a 580, it's a much better option.
Bench:



As you can see the 580 is faster, cheaper too.

This.
Kepler is terrible for what you want to do.

A 570 is nearly twice as fast as a 680 in Sony Vegas Pro, and i actually think that graph is understating the difference.

Fermi has a single core per 48 bits of memory, kepler has 2 cores per 48 bits, and while it has 3 times the cores, it has nowhere near that many more transistors.
And what you need for compute performance is lots of memory per core, and cores with lots of horsepower.
Not the complete opposite.

Pick up a good 500-600w psu, and get a 570/580.
You will save a ton of money and see a performance improvement. thumb.gif

EDIT:
It occurs to me that CS6 as a whole is also is really well optimized for OpenCL.
So even a good AMD card will offer better performance than a kepler is probably able to.

I would think the AMD cards this gen are the best for compute related tasks, it's just a matter of whether or not their software support is there or not. I just have no idea since i don't deal with that realm

Im fairly certain that only After Effects has any use for CUDA.
For everything else, it uses OpenCL, which AMD is faster in if memory serves.

actually, no. adobe premiere pro and adobe encore also use CUDA but NOT open cl. They only utilize open cl on a Mac, not windows. Photoshop uses open cl though. I'd still go with a 500 series nvidia card.

I wouldn't use Photoshop as a limiting factor, ever, a GTX650/HD 7750 is seconds within a GTX 680 (+/- 12%).


http://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Adobe-Photoshop-CS6-GPU-Acceleration-161/


http://www.pugetsystems.com/labs/articles/Adobe-Premiere-Pro-CS6-GPU-Acceleration-162/

Less than 10% improvement for Premiere Pro also , GTX 660 is the sweet spot for that
