[Chris Borjis] "I like the report, but its for Ray Tracing in After effects.

Does that equate to Mercury Engine performance on par in premiere?"

The short answer is "no", and from what I am seeing, the GTX-680 is the fastest card for Pr purposes, unlike for Ray Tracing ones.

It also seems that PPBM5 focuses more on benchmarking whole systems rather than individual components, and thus isn't a great source for figuring out which GPU is best for Pr.

E.g. all I see (on PPBM5 site) is the "MPE gain" chart (2nd one, "Mercury Playback Engine gain") which while does help a little, is not really a proper GPU-specific bench test but rather a statistical table.

Studio 1 test is the proper test on a fixed system, and it shows the fastest card being GTX-680, the slowest - GT-240, with the delta between them in the 25% range for timeline render, and in the 100% range (twice as fast) in MPEG export.

To me it means, get the least expensive card suitable for your system if your don't encode a lot; and if you do, the GTX-680 is the best choice by far.
