Speed of 680 MX for Premiere Pro?

Sorry if I've missed this answer somewhere, everyone is talking about the speed of this GPU and gaming. I'm interested in any information on it's speed etc for video editing (using Premiere Pro). My early 2008 dual core with a 256 MB GPU is withering and about to expire from overwork. I expect my new i7 3.4 GHz 680 MX tomorrow!
So any info would be appreciated

It should be a huge improvment. The 680mx has 1536 CUDA cores, thats a lot for a mobile GPU.

Only if you want to render quickly.

"Premiere Pro has the Mercury Engine encoder that uses the GPU but only for clips that use "accelerated" effects. If you have none of the Mercury approved effects applied to your clip then it's entirely on the CPU... unless you use a Quadro card and Elemental's Accelerator plug in."

Rendering is traditionally seen as a CPU task - this may/is likely to change.
