DaVinci, Premiere Pro and the Nvidia GT 120 and the quadro 4000

Hi, I have in my macpro 2008 the quadro 4000 and work fine with the adobe suite, Now I'm just starting to use and abuse DaVinci Resolve, but for the minimal expecification need other card. I going to purchase in Ebay the GT 120, this configuration works fine with boths program?
Somebody write once you installed the gt120, premiere don't recognize the quadro 4000 for the cuda and the open GL aplications. That is true?

Thanks.

I answered in the other forum as well, so this is double posted.

Premiere cs5.5 and under needs to be connected to the card to benefit from it. However this may change in cs6. If you dont need killer speed you can use davinci with just one card.

You will not get any satisfactory speed i bet with relatively slow machine combined with not so fast gpu.

Just saying that you do not have any hi expectations.

You may as well need special 4000 and 120 from here:

Keep the 4000 as primary card, get a any 470 as secondary card and a Y-cable.
Perfect in-the-box solution

What kind of Y cable you recommend for the 470.
I still have my old ATI HD 4870, I think I need only for my monitors, and the other card for the CUDA process in Premiere and DaVinci.
Or if better buy the 470.
I read from other post the Y cable made some issues in the motherboard.

I made my own Y cable and no issues.

Just had extra cable and did cut this in half and soldered this to second cable.

Now i have 4000 and 470 running in one machine.

Really neat setup.

Hi Jose, I noticed you posted the same question at "Adobe Premiere Pro" and "Adobe After Effects Expressions" forums. You got some response here but nobody has really answered your question yet.

My situation is similar to yours. I have a 2009 Mac Pro (4,1) with the original GT-120 and was thinking on adding a quadro 4000 to get maximun acceleration with the Adobe Mercury Engine. This is going to be a multi-purpose workstation running also Davinci Resolve. This is an ideal setup as per Blackmagic Desing recommended configurations. What you and I want to know is if there is going to be any conflict with Premiere Pro not recognizing the quadro 4000 card because of the GT-120.

I'm eager to know the answer to this and hear about any user experience with a similar setup. I wonder if you can tell Premiere Pro to use the quadro 4000 and ignore the GT-120.

[Mel Feliciano] "What you and I want to know is if there is going to be any conflict with Premiere Pro not recognizing the quadro 4000 card because of the GT-120"

As I responded to Jose, the answer is yes. Premiere as of CS5.5 can only use the card the display is connected to for MPE. Resolve, can't use the card the display is connected to for processing. So you're damned if you do and damned if you don't.

The best solution is as Sascha proposed. Y-split for power, and a GTX470 + Quadro 4000, this would allow you to hve the quadro for MPE connected to monitor & the 470 unconnected to any display for DaVinci.

So what you're saying is that Resolve won't work if there is a monitor connected to the GPU that will do the heavy processing, in this case the quadro 4000. And Premiere Pro has the opposite behavior; it requires the GUI monitor to be connected to the same GPU that accelerates the Mercury Playback Engine.

Ok, now I get it. Thanks!

Well thanks.

Now I need to find the 470 and try to arm a Y split.

Or if I lucky enough buy other quadro 4000, but for the price I going to the first option, My only fear is not fried my motherboard.

¨I have a slightly used 470 from Dave P. if you are interested?¨

Colin, how much are you asking for the 470?
have you found another configuration that works better fot Davinci/adobe GPU functionality?

Hey Diego,

I am asking $300 for the 470 Dave P flashed for mac card. I have not tried to utilize the GPU accelerated stuff with the Adobe CS suite - definitely hope in CS6 it will just see my GPU only card even though monitors are not attached to it!

What i did i took 3 cables and made one of those Y.

1 you use as you do now but second and third i soldered from the middle to be Y.
So cables 2 and 3 i did cut in the middle and got rid of one start point of cable.
Then i soldered start point of the cable (motherboard side) with two end points.

If you know how to solder it takes you 10 minutes.

For me it was fastest and neatest option as final setup was relatively clean, no loose
cable endings etc.
