Premiere Pro CS5 delivers with ATI cards too!!


Apple recently unveiled their new range of products including the new MacBook Pro’s. These laptops dont ship with Nvidia cards anymore instead they come with ATI cards installed. You can find more information on these new macs here http://goo.gl/LKhzd

Last year Adobe introduced Premiere Pro CS5 with Mercury Playback and Rendering Engine which leverages Nvidia’s CUDA technology to provide realtime playback and rendering. Mercury Engine just like mercury is quite flexible and volatile in adapting to various systems. This includes the new MacBook Pro’s too!

Check out our very own Dave Helmly’s video below as he showcases the blazingly fast performance of Premiere Pro CS5 with RED and HD footages using the new MacBook Pro.

  1. Thanks for the video, I wonder if it’s really taking advantage of the AMD GPU chip or the more powerful quad-core processors?
    Is there any way to tell?
    I have this new macbook, and using a few effects and avchd footage, it’s certainly not super smooth at full resolution playback.
    Lets hope Adobe releases an update for the new Macbook Pro 2011 !

  2. How was he able to get the yellow bar instead of red on the time line? Doesnt the yellow bar indicate gpu acceleration? Im very new to premiere pro on this new macbook pro but i know on my windows machine that bar turns yellow when it utilizes my cuda card.

  3. Hi Andrew,
    If a yellow render bar appears above the clip, Adobe Premiere Pro can probably play it back in real time without rendering. If, however, a red render bar appears above the clip, Adobe Premiere Pro probably can not play it back in real time without rendering.
