DaVinci Resolve has long been known for how well it utilizes the power of your GPU, but will it benefit from the raw power of the new NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3080?
While applications like Lightroom Classic utilize the GPU to accelerate a number of tasks, investing in a high-end GPU generally doesn’t net you much performance gain. With NVIDIA’s new RTX 30 series cards, will this continue to hold true, or is there a reason to invest in one of these new GPUs?
The RTX 3000 series cards are here, with NVIDIA boasting significant performance gains over the previous generation. While Photoshop does boast a number of effects that utilize the GPU, these effects tend to perform roughly the same independent of what GPU you use. Does this mean the new video cards are not useful for Photoshop, or will they surprise us with higher performance?
After Effects is primarily limited by the performance of your CPU, but recent improvements by Adobe has made the GPU increasingly important. With NVIDIA’s new RTX 3000 series cards bringing significantly higher raw performance to the table, will this translate into improved performance in After Effects?
Adobe has been focusing fairly heavily on GPU performance in the latest versions of Premiere Pro, adding more GPU accelerated effects as well as GPU-based hardware encoding. NVIDIA’s new RTX 30-series cards are touted as having significant performance advantages over previous generations, but will this make any difference for the typical Premiere Pro user?
Depending on the number of GPU-accelerated effects you use, a higher-end GPU can give you a nice performance boost in Premiere Pro. But is it better to go with an NVIDIA GeForce RTX video card, or one of AMD’s Radeon GPUs?
While the CPU still does most of the heavy lifting, depending on how many accelerated effects you use, having a more powerful GPU can sometimes make a significant impact on performance. With both AMD and NVIDIA recently launching a number of new video cards, it is time to once again see how different GPU models perform in Premiere Pro.
More than any other NLE, having a fast GPU (or multiple GPUs) is incredibly important in DaVinci Resolve. With both AMD and NVIDIA recently launching a number of new video cards, it is time to once again see what the best GPU is for Resolve.
Outside of very specific situations, After Effects is usually going to be limited more by your CPU than your GPU. However, the more GPU accelerated effects you use, the larger the benefit to using a faster video card. Both AMD and NVIDIA have recently released a number of new video cards, but is there any benefit to using them in After Effects?
Both AMD and NVIDIA have recently released a number of new video cards including the Radeon RX 5700 XT and the NVIDIA SUPER cards. Photoshop only uses the GPU to accelerate a small (but growing) list of effects, however, so is there any benefit to using any of these new card?
