Finally, what about AMD CrossFireX and Nvidia's SLI?
Do CrossFireX and SLI both support all functions of MGE and MPE?
That is, if one uses two identical (to be safe) graphics cards, will MGE & MPE both be able to take advantage of all of the GPUs?
Long and complicated post, I know - but Thanks for any help!
Incidentally, since I think it clear what my needs are (Modest budget Image and Video processing - not gaming) do any of you have other suggestions for a cost effective configuration giving the most bang-for-the-buck. I will not be building this system until W8 is out and stable with CS6.
I've been on the market for a new card myself, I ended up with a gtx 660ti 3gb. I think all the effects are enabled with Mercury Playback software only. The GPU acceleration is based on CUDA, which is proprietary to Nvidia cards. I had a ATI card for years and it was great, but as far as I know you wont see any hardware gains from the Mercury Engine with a Radeon card.
