I know that Intel quick sync is supposed to improve performance when decoding/encoding Video files but what are the advantages of H264 on the Nvidia GPU??? I don't feel t comfortable using my iGPU and CPU for the same tasks I would think that it woulfd get hotter. Plus I nver used so I don't know how fast it can encode. So I was using CUDA acceleration with adobe CS6 trial and it seemed to ork fine though I don't know if I was using it correctly. I renedered a few Videos on an i5 3570k with CUDA on and for a high quality 1080p video i took about real time....Feedback would be great

Especially on 3rd and 4th gen Intel hardware,,, 2nd gen may lag behind the GPU (if its a high end one)

Well right now I am using a i5 3570k with the stock fan and a PNY GTX 770 2Gb which has exceptional cooling, Note: This is the referenced base PCB but has an after marked cooler with 3 fans. It does get hot where I live already so The temps have gone up especially on the CPU. I am sawping out some thing and I do have a Hyper Evo 212 but I have it installed on my other part that I am going to use soon. I am getting into video editing and getting ready for college for a course that they have available here(Interactive and Motion Graphics) So I am trying to learn and try as many things as I find. Also I am trying to figure out the best way I can create Videos. I plan on uploading them to my channel which right now has a few gameplay videos. So I would like to own adobe creative suite CS6 but it is very expensive I used up a trial and did like. That is where the CUDA acceleration would come in to play. I am not sure what other Video Editing software uses CUDA. So aside from having a good gaming experience I would like to use my GPU for as many things as I can as long as the software does not set it on fire...;p.

Don't worry about the fire.the days are off now. (Still you can use a Chinese low cost psu if you are fireworks fan boy or just short any connection on the running system.)

I would too prefer using GPU for most stuff (Because in most of cases it is faster at it.) Still if can complete a Encoding job in half hour instead of taking a full hour i would never mind taxing CPU.But if I am doing random stuff along with that on the system i would let the job on GPU so that other stuff has enough resources to run.

As far as i know, this is the only non-bank breaking NVENC implementation that I know of and have used: http://forums.adobe.com/message/6318671

All others seem to be locked to work only with the Quadro or
I've got a GTX 780M in my laptop and it has cut my encoding to 1/5th the time. I suggest using CQ@20 encoding for best results.

Oh..cool. I had to edit a text file to use my GPU for adobe like pretty anyone who does not won the 10 cards on that list.
