hello pros,


I plan to upgrade graphic card from NVIDIA to AMD.

I have found a good conditioned used Radeon R9 380x 4GB PCI-E.

My PC is Win 7pro on x58 motherborad with I7 CPU of the first model.

So I read here recommended R9 270 , 290 for Vegas pro and I think 380 is higher model so that there should be no problems. I have 24GB RAM is already working VEGAS PRO 13.

I expect to better viewing performance while editing and rendering mostly Mainconcept MP2 for DVD architect DVD and Mainconcept Internet 1080p.

What do you think my plan or please advise something useful.

THANKS alot.


My pC case is quite a big enough. Power is OK.


BY the way, If using my PC to rendering MAINCONCEPT preset, do you think it is better to choice nvidia GTX580??

mainconcept and GTX580 old card set is better result in rendering but not previewing?

AMD R9 is getter for previewing and rendering??


Thanks in advance again.

The GTX580 will be okay - but it is only a pci-2 card !

Still using my GTX560ti - it works! Previewing, like many things in life, is load-dependant.

Hi Graham

The GTX 560 Ti, is a nice Fermi Architecture card.

Had one GTX 560 Ti (384 Cuda core), which was perfectly with GPU and CUDA in Sony Vegas pro -
then I switched to a GTX 660 Ti Architecture card (1344 Cuda cores). The GTX 660 Ti, was okay for Premiere Pro - but not for Sony Vegas !

The GTX 660 Ti was a no go for Mainconcept - Sony change the AVC template, so the GTX 660 Ti, was okay for GPU rendering !

[Ole Kristiansen] "The GTX 560 Ti, is a nice Fermi Architecture card. "
I had a pro PC Company in UK build it. They knew what I needed and they were Vegas Users too! That helped. So they knew which NVIDIA card to install, and what NOT to either. I hadn't a clue.

Made this small render test in 2013

Sony Vegas Pro 12 (Build 563) 64bit - used 9 stk. H.264 (.mts) 24Mbits footage - length 01:00 min.
According to Sony - the Sony AVC template, in Sony Vegas Pro 12 build 563, was a beta Kepler version !

MainConcept AVC template only CPU rendering:

GTX 660 : 01:55
GTX 580 : 01:48

MainConcept AVC template CUDA rendering:

GTX 660 : 01:49
GTX 580 : 00:29

Sony AVC template only CPU rendering:

GTX 660 : 01:06
GTX 580 : 01:01

Sony AVC template GPU rendering:

GTX 660 : 00:55
GTX 580 : 00:55

Couple thing to consider when switching NV to AMD.

Make sure the to not run both cards in the same system, even though the x58 has the lanes to support both in X16. I think there was someone that used to run AMD and NV cards with Vegas, but I would think there would be more crashes in that configuration.

Uninstall the NV software/drivers before pulling the card out of the machine. Make sure to get the GPU back to the default windows driver, such that is stays after a reboot. Then shut the machine down and install the other card.

Its just important to remove as much of the old driver as you can.

Its a good time to verify your OS files with SCF /scannow, run memtest86 to verify your memory is still good, run CCleaner after removing the old GPU, and make sure all the windows updates/Bios are pushed. Verify OpenCL operation with something like Luxmark, or the Min/Max Vegas plugin playback while monitoring your GPU load.

WOW, exciting discussion.

Thanks folks, there all advice is very useful.

Eventually I got this.

Palit NE5X580N10CB-1100F (GTX580 1536MB PCIE)

And AMD R9 for next machine maybe next year or more...

The card arrives soon and I will see what it is like.


Thanks again
