Important to these announcements are that each of these products (along with PhotoShop) will support OpenCL and OpenGL acceleration on AMD FirePro graphic cards. By working with AMD FirePro to use open standards (as opposed to proprietary soluitons i.e. Cuda), Adobe products will be accelerated on any modern graphics card (including any moves to mobile).
The chart below (from the FireProGraphics.com Adobe CS mini site) gives some initial results of how the next version of Premiere Pro performs when accelerated by AMD FirePro workstation graphics and OpenCL compared to CPU only and also compared to Nvidia Quadro workstation graphics and CUDA. This test applied several high quality effects (filters) to video footage in real-time, such as color matching, adjustments to compensate for gamma irregularities and color shifts, color layering, primary and secondary color correction, including many effects from Adobe’s Lumetri Deep Color Engine. The test then measured the time to render the effects In and Out.
At NAB 2013 next week (April 8-11, 2013), Adobe plans to showcase the next version of Premiere Pro in its booth (#SL3910) running on AMD FirePro workstation graphics cards.
This is big for AMD.
