I just installed the Quadro 4000 for Mac in my 2009 Mac Pro (Quad core 2.66ghz, 8gb RAM, RAID, 10.7.4) and it plays back red 4kHD files at 1/2 res with a stutter... EXACTLY the same results I had before I even installed the card. So in effect, no difference at all.
I have the latest CUDA drivers installed and the latest drivers for the Quadro 4000 for 10.7.4. Am I missing something? I have Mercury Playback Engine enabled. It was found and (CUDA) enabled.. but zero performance. If I turn the playback to "software only" I get the same results, 1/2 playback stutter and 1/4 res it plays fine. Whether I enable the Mercury Playback Engine or not makes zero different in playback.
I talked to Nvidia and they said to talk to Apple and Apple said to talk to Adobe and Adobe suggested I re-install CS6, which I did, and.. nothing. Am I missing something? After all the rave reviews of the Quadro 4000 and RED playback I dont see any difference whatsoever. This cant be right.
Premiere Pro CS 6.0.1 w/ Adobe Labs Plugin
CUDA 4.2.10 Driver
Quadro 4000 Driver version 270.00.00f06
Quad-core Xeon 2.66ghz
3TB RAID 0
I also have a GT 120 card and 3 monitors but I took out the GT120 card and unplugged all but one monitor to eliminate conflicts and still no results from the CUDA.
