Hello everyone,

 

I was just planning on upgrading my GTX 1060 3GB to a Radeon RX 5700 XT. Is it still buggy in the recent Premiere update?

 

I'm looking at the price to performance, although it would be best to really buy at least a 2070 Super.

 

I'm just here to here some of your opinions if the 5700 XT would be a bad or great pick.

 

Thanks!

Right now the RX 5700 XT is not a great choice at all for Premiere Pro due to the bad drivers that are currently available for it. It actually performs slower in Premiere Pro than even a cheapo GeForce GTX 1650 SUPER, let alone an RTX 2060 SUPER. In fact, it does not perform sufficiently better than your current GTX 1060 3 GB card to justify its current street price. Now, if you have other programs that somehow work better with an AMD GPU than with an Nvidia GPU, then go for it. Otherwise, there...

Many thanks for clearing this up!

 

Yeah i'm also happy with the new premiere update that supports nvidia cards oh so well. It really improved my render times with just a 1060 3gb. Will save up for an rtx then 👌

I'm looking at the new iMac for working with Premier, AE, LR, PS, etc. Would you go with the Radeon 5500XTor 5700? The 5700 is a $300 upgrade. But, I'm wondering if one has tested better with heavy video and photo editing. TIA

Avoid 5700XT. I just made full reply to someone else with issues that are happening with it but moderators marked it as a spam.

Thank you! Yeah I was just thinking of giving AMD a chance for editing but went with the Nvidia RTX 2060 Super after a lot of comparison. So far, I'm happy with Premiere having support for Nvidia GPU's and it really sped up my renders 60% more. Cheers mate!

Yep. The 5700 XT is problematic in Premiere Pro. Even when it worked well, it is no faster than a GTX 1660 SUPER in Premiere Pro. But the 5700 XT costs $400-ish, compared to only about $250 for the 1660 SUPER (prices are in USD).

It's a common problem with all RDNA-based AMD GPUs, even with the latest drivers.

After spending 5 days understanding what is going on, i found out that Windows update changed my power plan from Performance to Balanced. You can check first if if that is your case too. Set it to performance and see if crashes continues.

 

Also, disable Windows gaming mode. Just turn off all that crap there. I am running Radeon Pro 20.Q2.1 drivers and my 5700xt is finally stable.

Can't play is not crashing at least. You would be better with video cards for 4K editing role.

Hey, I know the thread is already a bit older, but I was hoping someone could help.

 

I have a 5700xt, and the card is not recognized at all in Premiere or After Effects (the  Renderer Dropdown is completely greyed out, no GPU acceleration option available).

 

Is there anyone who at least managed to get the card to show up? (even if slower than other cards)

 

Adobe Support stated that, because it is not in the recommended list, it is not supported, so they could not really help me with the issue Either.

 

Many regards
