Some video editing software will use multiple cores, some won't. You should check the recommended specs for the software you are going to use.

Matrox has a very good list of recommended motherboards for the RTX2 LE on their website.

We are running the RTX2 le GREAT inour DIY 6 machine http://www.videoguys.com/DIY6.html

rt.x2 le question for the Videoguys
on Jul 7, 2008 at 6:36:42 pm

I saw in the Videoguys FAQ on the RT.X2 that the you "could not match the real-time performance of the Radeon card with a Quadro FX <1700> until we installed the thousand-dollar Quadro FX 3700". I bought a Quadro FX 1700 thinking I would not buy the matrox, but I may now be at the point of buying it.

What kind of difference - quantitative or qualitative - was there between the Quadro and the Radeon cards when used with the RT.X2 LE? Thanks.

Matrox originally designed the RTx2 card to work with Radeon cards instead of nVidia, that's why u'll see a better performance.

Though nVidia cards work better with Adobe products, and you'll get a better perfomance from a Quadro card on a software only station than on a Matrox based.

To be more specific, CPU and Matrox cards handle the video streams, encoding, decoding, resizing, DVE; and Gpu handles filters and transitions. Matrox has its own library of RT filters and transitions and were written to work with Radeon cards. nVidia cards can do the job but the code is not optimized to work with them, but still u get a great general performance when using GPU transitions.
And if you use After Effects a lot then the Quadro 1700 was a good purchase.
