I just installed the new driver mentioned in the post, but I have no issues with my Nvidea titan-x (Maxwell).
If cspvideo is looking for a nvidea 1080 with pascal architecture to replace his current card, maybe go for the (unfortunately more expensive) new nvidea titan-x (pascal). It has much more memory (12GB) than the 1080, so excellent for 4k, and is rated to be 20 to 30 percent faster than 1080. It is a bit a pity nvidea das not changed the name of "titan-x" from maxwell version to "pascal" version, So be careful when ordering or reading reviews..
Possibly the old card is gtx titan-x, and the new just called titan-x (without the gtx)
As far as I know the new titan-x can/could only be ordered from nvidea themselves and maximum 2 cards 😕
I am happy with my (older maxwell gtx titan-x) which is a great performer for preview, editing and plug-in use on vegas 14. For the actual final rendering it does not excel as gpu rendering is generally underwhelming (or even not available for your card/driver) in vegas. You may as well just final render with gpu disabled.
I have also an "old" card, GTX 550Ti. With the last update, I have no preview in Vegas Pro 14, but with Vegas Pro 13 (build 453) all is working perfectly. Thus, I am not convinced with the explanation about "old cards"!
I have a GTX 1080 and I had to roll back the 378.49 driver because of problems with other software I use. So older cards may no be the issue. I also had a Windows 10 update recently that seems to have had some funny effects.
Yes: As an old MSc it goes without saying that all other parameters are kept unchanged.
No: I just switched the two cards from/to the very same slot on the MoBo - attached the very same two monitors - fired up the machine, installed the drivers from the included DVD - rebooted - and let it update the drivers from the Internet automatically. After a second reboot I eagerly made the tests.
Today I'm going to download the newest Nvidia Driver Uninstaller and let it remove all traces of Nvidia from the machine.
I'm not saying that Nvidia is a bad product - just that this simple change to the RX480 has made veritable wonders concerning Vegas on my machine - and I know that my grandson swears to Nvidia for his computer games... which also means that the GTX970 will have a reasonable resale value.
I have an Nvidia GeForce560 with 344.65 drivers. I've had a lot of problems with multi cam editing and crashing using V14. In the process of trying to troubleshoot I've installed and uninstalled driver updates that made a total mess of my video preview. With this current combo I can now more or less edit in V14 but now my V12 will no longer work with GPU on! I get a completely scrambled preview window with V12..which goes back to normal if I turn GPU off. Meanwhile, the preview window in V14 is now working with GPU on.....why? I uninstalled V12 three times now, reinstalling various versions hoping to get a functional V12 again...but no change. It used to work just fine with GPU on...but no more. Any idea what I could try to make the preview work in V12 with GPU on?
@OldSmoke: Thank you. Since I just installed the Gr.card I have only the newest and the one before that - which version would you recommend, please?
That said, I have changed the Dynamic RAM Preview to 0 - and the last couple of hours I have not had a crash. Interesting.
I also experienced similar crashes with the Nvidia card and drivers...
It was always so easy to say "The Vegas crashes are probably caused from your graphics driver" - but here is a proof that such crashes can appear even if one has changed from Nvidia to AMD - and thereby has uninstalled the Nvidia drivers totally (not only by normal uninstall, but by the program from the net available for total removement... This Preview RAM-thing has been mentioned for years btw...
For me our issues are coming from the fact that all new driver versions are justified by new games or issues to run some of the existing games (see release notes). Never for best performances in video editing programs. With my three years old NVidia card, I have never seen an improvement after having updated my drivers in the different Vegas Pro versions I have used (12, 13 and now 14). Sometimes serious troubles justified to go back to previous version. That's all. Conclusion: do not update the drivers if you are not facing issues in your favorite editing program!
