GPU for Adobe softwares

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

For photo editing, and video rendering mainly. 

 

Just wondering if the performance is mainly based on CPU instead of GPU. 

Planning to use a i7-6700K CPU, but not sure which GPU to choose. 

 

Thanks

i just want to know if Adobe software will perform depending on GPU 

 

like for gaming, GPU is very important. but i am not sure about Adobe.

if GPU doesn't play an important role in photo editing or video rendering.

it won't matter if i choose a lower end GPU, right?

Yes, your graphics card will have an impact. the level of that impact will depend on your budget. And the 6700k is better for gaming.


If anyone asks you never saw me.

hmm okay.

the GPU budget will be $200 CAD

i thought when it involves heavy multi-tasking, the i7 with Hyper-threading will be better

The Skylake 6700k concentrates on IPC for gaming. You want cores for video editing. But the 6700k is a great CPU so no worries there. 200CAD? Not a lot of options. Try to stretch the budget to a 480? Maybe a 470,

I believe that Adobe makes better use of CUDA cores than OpenGL... so Nvidia would be a better choice than Radeon

you do realize this is not for gaming, right?

 

first of all here's a list of supported GPU acceleration hardware for Creative Studio

chose any one of those according to your budget,

keep in mind that historically Adobe was focused on CUDA acceleration and there are still some CUDA specific features that do not yet have support for OpenCL in the latest version


CPU: Intel i7 5820K @ 4.20 GHz | MotherboardMSI X99S SLI PLUS | RAM: Corsair LPX 16GB DDR4 @ 2666MHz | GPU: Sapphire R9 Fury (x2 CrossFire)
Storage: Samsung 950Pro 512GB // OCZ Vector150 240GB // Seagate 1TB | PSU: Seasonic 1050 Snow Silent | Case: NZXT H440 | Cooling: Nepton 240M
FireStrike // Extreme // Ultra // 8K // 16K

Maybe once the 1060 and 1050 launch, but they will most likely be outside the budget. So the performance of the low end AMD cards will most likely offset the Cuda advantage.

You realize I was specifying the 6700k as being marketed for gaming, right? Sounds like they might not have the CPU yet. Xeon might be a better choice, and cheaper. Save money on the CPU and that could go towards the GPU.

Thank you.
This is what i am looking for.

 

and you are correct, this system only focus on Editing and Rendering.

a friend of mine gave this kind of opinion on the matter:

GPU preview is pretty but glitchy,
more CPU is better

 

exports cannot be accelerated by GPU, so... just throw more CPU at it
