i know it wont be near as good as the newer cards but what i want to know will i even be able to "open" or "install" PP/CC with this older card?
i plan to get something newer soon but want to see how Adobe has done with the OpenCL stuff vs nVidia CUDA.
thanks!

i just downloaded a trial of PP CC. it plays as good as it did in CS6 PP as to performance on my ATI 4870. as soon as i start making several CC adjustments on the 3 way color plug the CPU cranks up to about half of its usage on my 2.93ghz 8 core (16 cores counting hyperthreading). im really wondering how good the AMD Radeon HD 7970 @ $399 or the AMD Radeon HD 7870 2GB for $219 would fare against the GTX 680 that is now available for the current macpro?
