The latest video cards often get a lot of press, but unfortunately for content creators (and other professionals), NVIDIA's Quadro cards tend to be largely ignored by many PC hardware reviewers. In this article we will be looking at a range of NVIDIA Quadro Pascal video cards to see how they perform in Premiere Pro CC 2017.
Dear Microsoft, Windows and I go back a lot of years together. Too many to count, but let's just say my first PC gave me the choice to login to Windows 3.11 or MS-DOS. While our relationship has been mostly great (XP, 7), it's also been bumpy (ME, Vista) at times. But I've stuck with Windows as my primary computing platform because it's versatile, familiar and supports the programs I rely on each day.
NVIDIA has released the Titan Xp which is an update to the Titan X Pascal (they both use the Pascal GPU core). They also recently released the GTX1080Ti which proved to be every bit as good at the Titan X Pascal but at a much lower price. The new Titan Xp does offer better performance and is currently their fastest GeForce card. How much faster? I decided to find out by running a large Deep Learning image classification job to see how it performs for GPU accelerated Machine Learning.
A Mac Pro is not be best choice for Photoshop (even among Apple's offerings), but there are a number of users who use Photoshop as a secondary application in their workflow. In this article we will be examining how the top-end Mac Pro (late 2013) compares to two of our workstations.
Dual Xeon workstations are often viewed as powerhouses that can churn through anything you throw at them. With recent changes in both hardware and software, however, it is actually faster and cheaper to use a single CPU workstation. In this article we will look at a number of single and dual CPU setups to show the real-world performance difference in Premiere Pro.
The latest video cards often get a lot of press, but unfortunately for content creators (and other professionals), it is almost impossible to find any non-gaming benchmarks. In this article we will be looking at the Titan Xp to see how it perform compared to the GTX 1080 ti and previous Titan X video cards in Premiere Pro CC 2017.
Docker can be complex but for use on single-user-workstation you can get a lot done with just a few commands. This post will go through some commands to manage your images and containers. We will also go through the process of building a docker image for CUDA development that includes OpenGl support.
As I've mentioned before, I live in Southern Utah. But I travel to the offices of Puget Systems a few times each year. This gives me the opportunity to interact with a number of companies over a short period of time. Some marketers call these short interactions with customers micro-engagements. They might be short in duration, but smart companies understand how important they are in keeping customers happy.
With the wide range of NVIDIA GeForce video cards available, it can be difficult to figure out which ones will actually give you an increase in performance. In this article we will look at many video card options to see exactly how they compare in Autopano Video Pro 2.6
In this article we will be examining how the top-end Mac Pro (late 2013) compares to one of our PC workstations in Autopano Video Pro. These workstations were designed based on our extensive testing of Autopano Video Pro and other video editing software packages.
For our second year, Puget Systems will be exhibiting at NAB Show 2017 in Las Vegas, NV. We will be answering any, and all, questions on moving from Mac to PC for video editing. Are you considering making the move? Be sure to swing by our booth in the South Lower Hall of the Las Vegas Convention Center (SL13707) to talk with us.
In this article we will be examining how the top-end Mac Pro (late 2013) compares to one of our After Effects workstations. This system was designed based on our extensive testing of After Effects and represents both a great value (priced at just over half the cost of the Mac Pro) as well as giving excellent performance in After Effects.
A few weeks ago I wrote a blog post titled Should You Learn to Program with Python. If you read that and decided the answer is yes then this post is for you.

Puget Systems helped Spot MPG move from Mac to PC for their post-production / video editing needs.
You can use graphical application with Docker and NVIDIA-Docker by attaching your X-Window server socket to a container. And, it can be done in a relatively safe and secure way. I will take advantage of the Docker security and usability enhancements from the configuration with User-Namespaces that we setup in the previous post and show you how to run a CUDA application with OpenGL output support.
In this article we will be examining how the top-end Mac Pro (late 2013) compares to two of our Premiere Pro workstation configurations. These two PC workstations were designed to represent both a great value option (priced at roughly half the cost of the Mac Pro) as well as the best overall performance possible with modern hardware.
Windows 7 updates are being limited by Microsoft on the latest processor platforms, and in combination with the other issues we've seen lately when installing Windows 7 we are now only listing it as an option on well-supported configurations... until we run out of licenses, then it's over.
