Should I change my AMD Radeaon R7 450 graphics card for Premiere Pro ?

Hello,

I recently start a job where I need to edit and export a lot of video.

The problem is that it take me 8 hour to render and export just a 30 minute video in H264 3840x1080 (yes it's a strange format).
My computer at work is equiped with an Intel I7-6700, 16Go RAM and an AMD Radeaon R7 450.

The GPU acceleration (OpenCL) is enable on my Premiere Pro project.

I did the same export with my computer at home and it only took me 30 minutes to export the video with the same settings. I have the same config but instead of the AMD R7 450, I have the Nvidia GTX 970.

So my questions are :

- Do you think the problem come from the AMD graphic card ?

or

- Do you think there is an other problem on my computer at work or in my Premiere Pro preference ?

 

Thank you in advance, it's hard to work with those 8 hours of export...

Here's the problem:

 

The R7 450 is simply not as powerful as the GeForce GTX 970. In fact, even if it weren't for the differences between CUDA and OpenCL, the R7 450 is weaker than even a GeForce GT 1030 GDDR5 edition, let alone your current GTX 970.

I moved your post over from the poorly named "Using the Community" forum, which is for getting help using this forum system, to a better forum.


I hope this helps. Best of luck to you.

Some general notes - Not everything uses CUDA - and other hardware acceleration notes

I'm still using a GTX760 with 2Gig of video ram, which works OK with the 720p video that I edit at home (Canon SX510 camera) so if you are editing 4k video you will want something with a lot more power

 

The last I looked this one was about $300

Less at about $160 but still fairly powerful is

I agree with the others, Nvidia will definitely perform better.

To AMD's credit, when the R7 450 was developed, it competed primarily against the GT 730 (those models with the newer Kepler GK208 chip and 64-bit GDDR5 VRAM) - and there, the R7 430 did outperform all flavors of the GT 730, especially those models that used only DDR3 VRAM.
