Can anyone help me figure out what Nvidia Driver(s) (and the Nvidia CUDA Driver(s), that I need for my Mac version "Nvidia Quadro K4000", to use on MacPro, OS 10.9.5, and Premiere 9.1? Do I need to install the CUDA driver and the card driver? Or just one or the other?

Here's my system not showing any Nvidia installed icon:



Here's the website options for card drivers:



Here are the CUDA options:



Any help would be great.

Thanks,

So, I found this website:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/adobe-premiere-pro-cc.html

And downloaded the latest CUDA driver here:

http://www.nvidia.com/object/mac-driver-archive.html

And when I installed the CUDA, this icon suddenly appears in My System Prefs:



So, I guess this means CUDA is installed, and then I opened Premiere Pro 9.1, and this ( 3rd option ) a new box shows up: "Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration (CUDA)",



When I click on "Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration (CUDA)", my video previews DO NOT go away, like if I select "Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration (Open CL)", it looks like this:



So I change it back to "Mercury Playback Engine GPU Acceleration (CUDA)", my video previews come back up:




So, HOW do I know that the CUDA is working?

You simply start editing to see if everything is working as expected... If not, then come back for additional help, if yes, then get to work being creative.

I installed the CUDA driver, selected it in Premiere, and everything smooth. This machine is a beast, wow. And the Nvidia CUDA seems to be working, the reason I can guess, is because, yesterday, I opened several time-lines or Sequences in Premiere, and saw a lot of sections that we RED (un-rendered), and even though the CUDA was not enabled, the Software Only feature, with this amount of RAM, the playback was smooth, HOWEVER, with opening the same timelines or sequences today, after CUDA enabled, ALL of the sequences are now YELLOW, I have no RED stuff at all, not that it mattered during playback FULL or 1/2 quality, using Software ONLY, but now with the CUDA, nothing is in RED, or showing that is needs to be rendered. WOW! Thanks Dave!

So for now, I'm back to editing and being creative.
