AMD has announced its collaboration with Adobe Systems Incorporated to deliver OpenCL hardware-accelerated video editing for the first time on the Microsoft Windows platform with the next version of Adobe Premiere Pro.
The next version of Adobe Premiere Pro has been optimized to take full advantage of a wider range of AMD professional- and consumer-class graphics processing units (GPUs) and accelerated processing units (APUs), delivering real-time editing with formats from DV to HD and 4K Ultra HD at high frame rates. Now Adobe and AMD extend this advanced OpenCL functionality to creative professionals running the Windows operating system. The expanded support on Windows and OSX complements the Mac OSX OpenCL support available on Adobe Premiere Pro.
From its APUs and notebook graphics cards to professional workstation cards , AMD technology works transparently with Adobe Premiere Pro to provide scalable GPU-accelerated editing solutions. The software is accelerated by OpenCL to efficiently harness the compute power of AMD APU and graphics products and achieve up to 4.3X faster exports from a source format with effects to a preferred final destination format.
