I know this manner of thing is discussed ad infinitum, but everyone’s got their own specific setup and needs, so it’s worth getting right…right??
I’m running a Mac Pro, using a lot of After effects and Premiere, and am thinking of getting a GFX card to boost performance the following parts of my workflow.
– Raytracing in AE
– Invigorator plugin in AE
– VCP Element plugin in AE
– The Cinema4D functionality when it becomes active in AE
– Cinema 4D itself
– Premiere, though not essential
Oh… and I still need to be able to run a non-thunderbolt apple cinema display, and a straight Asus monitor via an HMDI cable.
Does such a solution exist? Budget cap at around £1300.
Many thanks in advance!

See the benchmark results:

benchmark results for After Effects:
Note how well the GTX 6xx and 5xx cards do in those results.

Cool, thanks for that, Todd…
Although having found another of your blog posts…seems that there’s only a couple of cards that will work for me anyway?
Any plans to support the GTX 680 Mac Edition when it comes out?
