Can anyone else confirm that AE is misreading the GPU on their 2013 Mac Pro? Here's my GPU Information from AE:

Yep, that's what it is on my machine as well and that's how it will stay until Adobe gets around to optimizing AE for the nMac Pro.

Cheers!

I'm not sure if this answers your question but here's an article on how to support unofficial cards by changing a text doc:

Also make sure your card's driver is the most recent available.

I can appreciate that you're trying to help, but you do realize that the D700 is an AMD GPU and that CUDA is an nVidia technology?

Nothing in the article you linked is going to help in this case.

Thanks, at least it's not just me! I suppose we won't see an update until NAB.

Anyone know if Adobe has announced when they will have an update to AE that allows it to utilize the full VRAM of the d700, and the use of both GPUs?

[Brad Bussé] "Anyone know if Adobe has announced when they will have an update to AE that allows it to utilize the full VRAM of the d700, and the use of both GPUs?"

AE barely uses even one GPU now. Other than third-party plugins and the (obsolete) ray-traced renderer, AE does precious little with it. I would love for AE to have a GPU-accelerated workflow because I have a nice big GPU that's just raring for a chance to shine.

Adobe has hinted that the After Effects team is working on making AE faster across the board. So, to answer your question, probably in version 14 or 15. Seeing as version 13 just came out, this might take a while.

But I'm assuming that if Ae is limiting dual d700s w/ 12gb of VRAM combined, then plugins like element 3d are limited to 1 gpu and 1.5 gb VRAM. It would be nice for Ae to at least properly see both gpus and all VRAM for the sake of plugins, even if Ae itself isn't yet gpu or gpgpu optimized.
