After Effects has had a bit of a rocky relationship with video cards ever since GPU acceleration was added back in 2015 with little reason to use more than a mid-range video card. However, NVIDIA’s new RTX series cards are here and they bring to the table two new features that may finally give you a reason to invest in a high-end GPU for After Effects: Tensor cores and RT cores.
Photoshop CC 2018: NVIDIA GeForce RTX 2080 & 2080 Ti Performance
Photoshop does utilize the video card to accelerate a number of tasks, but a high end GPU is rarely necessary to get great performance. Do the RTX cards follow this trend, or do the new RT and tensor cores give them a performance advantage?
DaVinci Resolve 14: NVIDIA GeForce vs AMD Radeon Vega
DaVinci Resolve is able to heavily utilize the GPU (or multiple GPUs) to greatly improve performance, but are you better off using an NVIDIA GeForce card or an AMD Radeon card?.
After Effects CC 2018: NVIDIA GeForce vs AMD Radeon Vega
After Effects may not be able to take advantage of the GPU as much as other applications, but the question still comes up: AMD Radeon or NVIDIA GeForce? Which performs better in Ae and which will give you more performance for your dollar?
Premiere Pro CC 2018: NVIDIA GeForce vs AMD Radeon Vega
AMD vs NVIDIA is typically a very hot topic for PC enthusiasts and we often get requests to compare AMD’s Radeon Vega video cards to their NVIDIA GeForce counterparts. Premiere Pro is able to take better advantage of the GPU than most other Adobe applications, but will AMD or NVIDIA give you more bang for your buck?
Media Encoder CC 2018 Transcoding: NVIDIA GeForce vs AMD Radeon Vega
Depending on how you use Media Encoder, the GPU may or may not have a large impact on performance. If you use it primarily as a transcoding tool, it should be mostly CPU-bound – so is there any reason to use NVIDIA GeForce over AMD Radeon or vice versa?
Photoshop CC 2018 NVIDIA GeForce vs AMD Radeon Vega
We are often asked how AMD’s Radeon Vega video cards compare to their NVIDIA GeForce counterparts. Photoshop rarely benefits from having a powerful GPU, but there is still a measurable difference between these two brands of cards.
Agisoft PhotoScan 1.4.1 NVIDIA GeForce vs AMD Radeon Vega
PhotoScan makes use of the video cards in a computer to assist with the computation of certain steps. As such, the model of video card used can have an impact on the amount of time those steps take. In this article, we take a look at AMD’s Radeon line – including the Vega 64 and 56 – and see how they stack up to NVIDIA’s GeForce 1000-series.
SOLIDWORKS 2018 GPU Comparison: Monster (Sized) Model
Following up on our previous article about SOLIDWORKS 2018 GPU performance, we have been provided with an extremely complex assembly that finally shows some performance difference between low- and high-end video cards within the same family. Armed with this 4372 part, 40.9 million triangle model we ran through testing on multiple Quadro and Radeon Pro graphics cards to see how they handle such a monstrously large project.
SOLIDWORKS 2018 GPU Comparison: What Is the Meaning of This?
Despite how popular SOLIDWORKS is, there is a lot of outdated and simply inaccurate information on the web regarding what video card you should use. For this article I tested multiple graphics cards from the Quadro, GeForce, and Radeon Pro families at both 1080p and 4K resolutions – and quickly found that either things are now a lot simpler than in my past experience, or else something is no longer up to snuff regarding how we have tested SOLIDWORKS GPU performance in the past.
