Hello, very interesting.
I have a gtx 550 ti (with lion 10.7.4). I would like to move to Mountain lion but I have to upgrade the GPU.
I do not play, but I do video editing and use Adobe premiere, after effect, final cut, potoshop etc. ... maybe it is better to fermi a card for me? ... 570/GTX GTX 580 vs GTX660 ti / GTX 670?

Fermi card 570 and 580 are fully supported in Mountain Lion?
Sorry for my bad English. Hello.


I have the 570 and it works great in AE and photoshop. Lux mark is about 1200. I had to hack in the CUDA for adobe after effects, but realistically unless your doing ray-trace you probably don't need it, but it's pretty simple to do (basically just putting it in the list of supported cpu)

cant say for the the other programs you listed, and to some extent, it looks like you'd really benefit from a strong processor and ram more than anything.

Is the 5xx series all better than the 6xx series for both OpenCL and CUDA? I got a GTX 660 Ti, but it sounds like I'd be bettor off with a GTX 580.

I figured I'd share my Lux scores as a point of reference. I have a GTX 690 and I received a combined score of 1415 for both GPUs on 10.8.3. Does anybody know if I still need Nvidia patch for GPU memory larger than 2gb?

No need for the OpenCL patch since 10.8.3

id like to know too. I wont be gaming much these days. Would be using more indesign, illustrator, photoshop work and the occasional FCPX.
Am i better off with a 5xx series?

Hi kev7in,

I just wondered what your install procedure was for getting the 570HD fully working in 10.8.3?
I have the same card. I started with a working 10.8.2 install as per Alfas guide and installed the 10.8.3 combo update and the cuda update, and I got errors in Photoshop and AE stating incompatible device or cuda driver. Also luxmark gave me an opencl error.

I also lost the ability to hot plug the DVI sockets and I had to resort to using graphicsenabler=yes again, even though I had a working device properties string, at least it was working in 10.8.2

Appreciate any help you can give me.

Cheers

Bonce

Are there any real benefits to installing the CUDA package on 10.8.3 with a 650 TI? Or maybe a better question would be if it will do more harm than good?

I am running a GTX670 but everything that I have read says that 5xx series is the way to go over the 6xx. The AMD 7970 seems to almost double it's score. Not sure what the move is here, I'm probably going to wait until the mac pros are released as those cards are going to be optimized for FCPX (and hopefully the adobe suites).

I guess the question to mac man is. If you do photo/video editing can you give us a definitive answer on what card to get within the $350-$550 range; just to put the issue to bed.
