I thought they announced this last week? OpenCL that is. It was on their website.

Well, then I'm lame.

Sorry.

Nice to hear that it's going to be more than a one off effort.

I was under the impression that they had simply announced for the current MacBook Pros, but hey--if Jeremy hadn't posted it, I still wouldn't know next week.

I saw this too. Seems Adobe does care if people keep using Macs.
Hmm, we know Autodesk does.

The question is does Apple care.

Grabbing all the information from the information superhighway before those lanes close down for extensive resurfacing.

Plus, I'm an editor, late nights are part of the gig!

Odd they just mention the MacBook Pro. What about MacPro's with VASTLY faster GPU's? Or iMacs for that matter?

Those two MacBook Pros cards are the only ones that are currently qualified, which might not be the same as saying they're the only two that will work.

Prior releases of Premiere could be made to use some unqualified NVIDIA cards by editing a text file, if you were so inclined.

What Walter said.

There's ways to unofficially add more GPUs to the approved list of GPUs.

People have doing this for CUDA cards for a little while, and supposedly it works.

I can build a hackintosh as well and it *should* work…

There's building a whole computer, or modifying a text file.

Bananas and kumquats, my friend.

The Nvidia GPU trick really does work. Not sure on the ATI trick, but check out here:

I know there is a difference it's still very odd. But I guess Apple forces Adobe / Autodesks hand since they aren't given them solid desktops to work with?

Or doesn't have very good Nvidia support, and also has rather closed systems when you move beyond the MacPro.

What is interesting is that, this means working with current Mac laptops/iMacs is more viable.

MacPro's can get a bit of CUDA if they'd like, and slowly and sort of unofficially, Nvidia is getting more support in Lion from Nvidia themselves, and mountain lion seems to have even more support.

I'm not sure if there's going to be another MacPro, but tea leaves point to more GPU options for macs.

If not, this relationship with AMD is very welcome in my book, and it shows that Adobe does give a rats ass about us sorry Mac people.
