Creative collaboration between AMD FirePro™ and Adobe®
AMD FirePro™ professional graphics solutions are fully optimised for Adobe Creative Cloud™ Applications , giving you more choice and providing cutting-edge application performance and reliability when using Adobe’s latest video production tools, including Adobe Premiere® Pro CC, Adobe After Effects CC, Adobe Media Encoder CC, Adobe SpeedGrade CC, Adobe Prelude CC, and Adobe Photoshop CC. You can unleash your creativity by tapping into the immense power of the latest AMD GPUs and APUs using open standards technology and get lighting fast results when working with your content, in HD, 4K and beyond.



OPTIMISED PERFORMANCE

Following the successful release of Adobe Premiere Pro CS6 in 2012, Adobe Premiere® Pro CC expanded GPU-acceleration via OpenCL™ to include Microsoft Windows® workstations, with a broad selection of certified AMD graphics hardware. This continued support of open standards gives you more choice and helps to future-proof your investment.

WORK IN HARMONY WITH ALL YOUR OTHER ADOBE SOFTWARE

Premiere Pro CC isn't the only Adobe application to support heterogeneous system architectures to speed up your workflow. Other video production tools such as After Effects, SpeedGrade, Media Encoder, and Prelude leverage AMD GPUs for fast performance. In Adobe Photoshop CC includes the Mercury Graphics Engine to also take advantage of your AMD GPU for blazingly fast performance on even the largest of images when using demanding tools such as the latest Blur Gallery, as well as features such as Smart Sharpen and Upscale.. And since it's based on open standards like OpenCL™ and OpenGL, there's no need for graphics hardware using proprietary programming languages.

1AMD FirePro™ W8100 graphics card provides the best performance on Adobe Premiere Pro and Media Encoder compared to other AMD FirePro™ graphics card models. Based on AMD internal testing on Adobe® Premiere® Pro (output settings: 1920x1080, 29.97FPS, Progressive, WMV, VBR, 2 Pass Constrained, Avg 8000.00 kbps, Maximum Render Quality) using a 252MB MP4 file, AMD FirePro™ graphics cards render and encode time with the Gaussian Blur 100px, Lumetri Blue Steel, and Lumetri Cinespace+5% Noise effects, respectively, as follows: W8100=402/411/399 sec, W7100=420/372/541 sec, W5100=610/487/795 sec, and W4100=988/729/1115 sec. AMD lab test system configuration: workstation with Intel Core i7-4790K @ 4.0GHz, 16Gb DDR3 RAM, Asus Z97 motherboard, Windows 8.1 64-bit, AMD driver 15.20. Media input: 3846x2160 MP4, 23.97 FPS Progressive. Render and export in Adobe Media Encoder. FP-146
2AMD FirePro™ W7100 graphics card performs up to 14X as fast as the Intel Core i7 CPU alone using the Lumetri Cinespace effect, and up to 10X faster on Adobe Premiere Pro and Media Encoder. Based on AMD internal testing on Adobe® Premiere® Pro (output settings: 1920x1080, 29.97FPS, Progressive, WMV, VBR, 2 Pass Constrained, Avg 8000.00 kbps, Maximum Render Quality) using a 252MB MP4 file, AMD FirePro™ W7100 graphics cards render and encode time with the Gaussian Blur 100px, Lumetri Blue Steel, and Lumetri Cinespace+5% Noise effects, respectively, was 420/372/541 sec, compared to Core i7 times of 4813/4080/7666 sec. AMD lab test system configuration: workstation with Intel Core i7-4790K @ 4.0GHz, 16Gb DDR3 RAM, Asus Z97 motherboard, Windows 8.1 64-bit, AMD driver 15.20.
