Windows 7: Video Render iGPU vs GPU

Video Render iGPU vs GPU

Hi I have a small question regarding video rendering.

I have a 3570K with the iGPU currently disabled and a GTX460, my question is which should I use
for rendering videos? CUDA or iGPU?

Should meaning in terms of best performance = less time.

Thank you.

It rather depends on what you are rendering to! I would try both and see which one gives you the perfomance you are looking for. Personally I would always go with quality of the finishedfile, time to render would be of secondary importance to me! What Video Software are you using BTW?

Not sure what you are asking here:

Quality isn't affected by what chip i'm using to render it , it's the preset or the settings that count.
Sorry I meant what which will be faster in rendering

I'm using Premiere Pro.

Unless it's been added, Premiere Pro doesn't support intels Quicksync, so I'd stick with CUDA.


However you can always try both on an example project and time it yourself.

In this case I think the CPU would be faster ... try and tell us.

As I said before try both and see which suits you. If you are rendering prior to making a DVD has Premier Pro got the otion command "Do not re render mpeg compliant files"? If so using that can drastically reduce rendering time and has the added bonus that as you probably know every time you render a file you loose some quality so not re rendering maintains quality!

Neat I didn't know that!
Where is that option?

I don't use Premier Pro as the version I tried did not handle AVCHD that well so I found an alternative and what I think is a much more straight forward Video Editor. I can't help you finding the facility in PP but if it is any use at all here's a screenshot of the window where it is on my software:

Oh man I totally forgot about updating this thread!
*hides*

So I with the hardware available to me the CPU was the winner!
although when looking at resources being used in procmon while rendering the GPU was also being
utilized even when the CPU was doing the heavy lifting.
