    Finally found a project that people were using to benchmark different cards with After Effects.

    Is there a trick?

    I double clicked on the file and AE opens up, the ray tracing turns on and then....NADA?

    Can someone take a moment and post how to run the benchmark?

    I am able to open AE but don't know the software well enough to know how to run this benchmark.

    I would be happy to post scores from a variety of cards in a couple different CPU Mac Pros if someone could spell that out.

    Just hit Composition -> Add to render list

    and then render it. If you see it twice on the list, make sure you untick one of the two. That's at least the way I did it.

    Yes, El Awesome is right.

    You can also hit: Shift, Command, 0 (Numpad) to bring up the Render Queue. Check the small box on the far left, set your output destination and then click render on the far right.

    Something still not right - never mind, got it working !!!

    Should there be an image in the window?

    I am using a 2008 with 2 @ 4 core 3.2, with 26GB of RAM and a flashed GTX670 4GB and it is running in 55 seconds. Way too fast, so something isn't right.

    Got it working, results coming !!!

    The AEP already has the render queued up. You should open the downloaded file. Go to Window->Render Queue. Click on "Not Yet Selected" to give a destination and hit the "Render" button.

    If you have GPU processing enabled in the Preferences->Previews then everything should work properly.

    Hac Pro - 10.8.3 / After Effects CS6

    16GB 1600 RAM
    GTX 670 2GB

    Seems like those extra CUDA cores on the 580 would have been worth it!

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but I thought the GTX580 has less cores but runs them at higher fequency, and that is what makes it faster in CUDA.
    For gaming, your 670 should crunch a GTX580.

    Oh, I stand corrected!
    Either way, I knew it was going to trump the 670 in CUDA applications when I chose the GPU, but it was also for gaming when I'm not editing...

    I give up. It claims 5 hours remaining...
    Can´t figure what I´m doing wrong.

    I had the same problem with an i7 3.5 GHz and GTX 670. The CPU was taxed and the 150 frames wanted four to five hours to be rendered.

    Then I remembered the CUDA trick for Adobe products, as I have already done it, but recently have tried an Nvidia Web Driver, thus the settings may have been gone.

    I tried the CUDA trick again, and schwuppsdiwupps, it took about 7m37s to render the 150 frames while the CPU was only taxed for 1/8th of its capacity.

    Here is the CUDA trick.

    ----------

    But you have a mobile GPU, thus while having that many CUDA cores, they are slower than their desktop GPU counterpart.

    I have a GTX 670 (desktop GPU) and get it done in 7m37s, some here even have benchmarks done in 6mxxs.

    Yup, I know it's a mobile GPU, but many of the features are comparable/better to older cards on this list getting much better results. I guess my expectations were just a little higher. (although I don't expect results like the newer Nvidia cards)

    You have more CUDA cores than the older cards but they got ride of shader cores..so your 1536 cuda cores is actually 768 cores and they run slower because it's mobile. What you will see though is your mobile card beats the older ones at gaming which was nVidia's intent.

    Is there a reason why the file is called "CS6 11.1"? Is that the Creative Cloud version ? Here at work there is a box version and that seems to only be 11.0.2?
    Want to try different benchmarks this weekend in regards to PCI slot configurations, but just want to make sure that we have the right version before coming in on a Saturday :p

    I have 11.0.2 as well and it worked. :)
