    Nvidia Driver advice please.

    Using MC version 8.9.2 I have installed  and been using an NVidia  Quadro FX 3800 on my machine.

    Opening up previously editable projectss ceated on earlier version of MC with a 6 way video split using Multi cam editing playback of all 5 Video clips was perfect when clips were grouped.

    Under version 8.9.2 I would be lucky if I am getting 10 frames plackback rate so I thought better install the latest driver applicable.

    Hunted out the supplied Avid/Utilities/nvidia driver for win 7 tried to install it and the installer just advises that there is no applicable hardwear on the machine.

    So the question is should that supplied driver be comaitable with the FX 3800 if not what one am I surposed to be using ?


    Any advice warmely recieved


    Many Thanks

    Re: Nvidia Driver advice please.

    There should be two drivers in the utilities\nVidia folder, one is specific to Windows 7 and 8. You may need to experiment with different nVidia drivers in order to find one that works well with Your ageing card and MC. The latest is not necessarily Avid friendly. Is everything configured as per the Avid instructions in the nVidia control panel?

    We are using MC 8.8.5 with a Quadro FX4800 and the  Nvidia driver 340.84 and it works pretty well.
