    PNY Quadro 2000

    Is this still a good video card with MC6?

    Thanks

    I think yes. I just bought one and will use it when my new computer will be built!

    PNY Quadro is recommended by AVID so you can´t go wrong ! I´m using an older FX3800 card and it works fine

    Re: PNY Quadro 2000

    No need to contact the card manufacturer, just go to the system requirements page over the Avid website and check the Avid approved/certified parts list; to cut a long story short all the nVidia Quadro FX and Quadro Fermi cards from the 560 on are OK, the 2000 will definitely work, and the 4000 will also support Avid's distributed processing too.

    There are so many post regarding these cards and what they can do.

    Read, read and read. What is wrong with 4000, nothing. I'm using 2000D.

    Don't know what the hell are You going to use all of those cuda cores for, given that they reside on an unsupported card; the MC code is optimized for the nVidia Quadro line of video cards, as powerful a non Quadro card can be, You'll never enjoy its full potential.

    I am looking at a new system as well, but I am uneducated about what uses what and what is really necessary.  However, wouldn't Sorenson Squeeze utilize the cuda cores?  Would MC 6 not work as well with the card mentioned above?  Heck, I have been using a geforce card a for about 7 years now with no problems, it is or wasn't supported at the time.  Anyway, I am looking for a good all around card and the best bang for the buck.  Can you convince me that a quadro is essential?    Any info would be appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Re: PNY Quadro 2000

    Qualified Quadros cards have drivers that are specifically designed to be used with MC. There is a lot that goes into displaying video and the techniques that the card can use.

    An example is antialiasing. The video card can try to remove the jaggedness on angled straight lines. This may make things look better when they are displayed, but how will your rendered files look on another display device? Using qualifed drivers makes sure that those methods are implemented with video editing and MC in mind. FWIU, this is not the case with a gaming card.

    I can't honestly point to any specific difference between Quadros and Geforces and say, "THIS is it, that's why you need a Quadro." But I believe that as computers and NLE's get ever more complicated, it's best to simplify when possible. So using a Quadro 2000 removes one variable when troubleshooting.

    Well this is different, as I was talking about an Avid dedicated video card, if You want the best possible Avid performance get the most powerful Quadro card You can afford, if You want a general porpouse card that will also work with Avid get whatever you like. As You can find out by Yourself by searching the forum, the Quadro implementation of the OpenGL routines is different from the GeForce's, Avid is written and complied to best work with the Quadro OpenGL flavour, it will definitely work with other video cards, even non nVidia cards, but the best performance is only going to be achieved with a Quadro, not to mention that a Quadro will work out of the box, with the Avid supplied driver, no thinkering with exotic settings or hunting for a driver release that will be FULLY compatible with MC.

    Re: PNY Quadro 2000

    Thanks Lucus,

    When I said all around, yes this is for editing not gaming.  But I need sorenson to be as quick as possible.  As far as antialiasing, are you saying that they could be rendered incorrectly if I don't use a quadro card?  I use an HD monitor for final inspection and haven't noticed anything funny in the last 7 years.  Maybe there has been "problems"  but call me fat, dumb and happy I guess.  I'm just not convinced that the final video is going to be affected by an "unauthorized" card.  Response of the interface durring editing, yes, but will the final video be affected adversly?  For what it is worth, I am looking at a 4000.  But it is my understanding that the newer quadro cards are using different technology than the ones of a few years ago which are still Avid approved. 

    I don't mind spending the money if it is neccessary, but if it isn't neccessary and is going to make Sorenson slower, why pay more money?

     

    Thanks for your insights,

    I'm working with an ATI 4850, Both MC and Squeeze do not display artifacts...

    I'd like to point out that CS 6 which has an extremely potent playback engine supports Quadros and select GeForce cards.

    matt,

    It is possible that a Geforce card used to render Avid's ACPL effects will do so differently than would an Aivd certified card. Have I seen a concrete example of this for MC? No, but I also don't go around looking for this type of stuff.

    Also the image might look different when displayed on a computer that does not use a video card and driver combination designed for video.
