Default Suitable video card Edius 8

Hello everyone use edius 8 ultma version, and I installed a gtx 960 2gb, I would like to upgrade to a gtx 1060 6gb, do you think I would have the benefits and improvements?
For now published with avchd mts 1920x1080p files, but next year I would start with 4K files.
thank you

A GPU upgrade will not matter much so if you don' t plan on using the GPU for programs like Resolve which unlike edius does use a GPU to it's full potential then I would consider it a waste of money, only some GPU accelerated effects like neatvideo will benefit from it but don't expect better playback or encoding times when working with 4K files. Edius takes most advantage from the build in chip on the CPU like your I7 4790K has. As far as I have experienced (I also still have my "older" i7 4790k) adding a videocard or using no videocard at all did not improve playback or encoding times.

I'm still on a old GTX 560 card driving a 27 inch screen, been editing 4K footage no problems. Rebuilt my system to a 8700K recently and did not bother to upgrade the card.

Thanks for your advice, so for edius a video card like mine (gtx 960 2gb) may be fine, I would not have improvements, but only for neat video or for some video effects, I mean well?
I ask you more experienced than me, because I had been told that for 4K files you need a video card with at least 4 GB but better if 6 GB, and since mine has only 2 GB I thought it was not suitable.
thanks again for your very useful tips.

I can only speak from my own experience but I did not notice any difference using no graphics card at all and using a gtx1060 6gb card when editing 4k files on my I7 4790k.
I never measured encodingtimes to compare but it didn't feel any different to me, the only reason I added a gtx card was because the chip on the CPU didn't support the higher resolution screen I got and I wanted to play some games that needed a bit more gpu power.

Only if you use a lot of GPU accelerated effects or plugins like neatvideo that use a videocard you will see some improvement but no massive difference compared to your old card. You will sooner see a difference in editing performance for 4K when you overclock your cpu.

If you also use resolve, sony vegas or any program that uses a videocard then I is a good investment to buy a recent fast card but for edius alone I would say better save that money to get you a years supply of beer.

I don't think you will notice much difference going from a 960 to a 1060, but if you had an older card (560 etc) with 1GB RAM I have found the overlay in 4K projects is sometimes jerky, so would want to update for that.

The overlay is never perfect anyway and even with an old card it would still look fine though a Blackmagic output card, but it is nice to have as good as possible picture on screen.

Thanks to you for the advice, but I would like to know, Edius 8 sees all the video cards?
For example, does it work better with an Nvidia GTX or AMD video card?
Example for edius is the same working with a gtx 1060 6gb or an RX480 8gb?
thank you

I have done some tests with a gtx1060 6gb and a amd rx570 in March this year and also reported here about my findings regarding using the primary color corrector because that does support gpu acceleration, this is what is said back then:

Quote:
Some other useful info for those buying a midrange videocard to help out with the primary color correction playback speed, I have a 6gb 1060 nvida card but also have been testing with a amd rx570.
For best playback when you are using the primary color correction definitely get the 1060 card, I get a clear bump in playbackperformance with that card compared to the rx570, the 1060 manages to keep the buffer more full while with the rx570 it starts to stutter much quicker. The rx570 also runs hotter much quicker then the 1060 card.

I generally stick with nVidia because that is what most editing and effects software supports before supporting AMD.
