Sandy Bridge Intel HD 3000 graphics
« on: March 25, 2011, 11:35:11 AM »
Just wondering if anyone has any experience with using the new sandy bridge cpu and its on-die graphics. Im building a new computer and it would be great to use this for video editing rather than getting another graphics card!

Any thoughts? I can only find reviews which compare it to discrete graphics cards for playing games!

It depends on your workflow.   

At present, some of the adobe tools have HW acceleration that leverages Cuda specifically on nVidia cards.   If you do a lot of work with numbered stills for video (time lapse) then you might care about that.

Adobe Premiere Pro and its Mercury playback engine works with certain graphics cards to greatly speed up video.  Even with a fairly decent graphics card, Canon mov files are difficult to edit.

There is a lot of info online about it.

Capture One Pro also utilizes NVidia CUDA when available.  I'd definitely use a third party NVidia based card for photo apps unless you know for sure you'll never use an app that utilizes CUDA.
