Quick post – Some great nerdy info on GPU and scaling
Todd Kopriva has posted an article on some of the other benefits of using a CUDA enabled GPU card with Premiere Pro CS5. As he points out, a lot of people equate CUDA to FAST, FASTER, FASTEST and the Mercury Playback Engine as the GPU. Neither of these are necessarily or exclusively true.
In Todd’s article, he outlines why GPU can make video better and sometimes faster as well. It’s definitely worth the read and I hope you’ll follow the link.
