    Premiere and Avid on same system with Nvidia Quadro 2000 - which driver?

    I'm in some confusion about video drivers.

    I've just instaled the 2020 version of Premiere Pro on my system on which I've been running Avid for some time (now on 2020.12).  

    The two NLE's require a different version of the video driver for my Nvidia Quadro Pro 2000 graphics card.  It appears that Premiere wants the latest while Avid requires an older version.   I've seen this discussed before, but can't seem to find anything specific about it.

    Anyone worked out the solution to this problem?

    Thanks.

    Use the latest one and work backwards. If that doesn't work, try an earlier version.

    Hi Simon,

    Just to confirm, you are talking about the quadro 2000, not a k2000, m2000 or p2000?

    If it is the quadro 2000 you need to use the 353.82 for windows 10 drivers. These were however never tested/supported for MC 2019.x or MC 2020.x. They do work for MC 2018.12.x. although also not supported.

    There are newer drivers for the quadro 2000 but they do not play nice with MC 2018.12.x.. I never tested these newer drivers for the quadro 2000 with MC 2020.x though. So they could work but I expect you will run into performance issues. 

    If you have one of the newer k,m or p cards Avid advices to use 443.66. But I have seen systems with newer drivers working fine.

    Here is a link to the knowledge base article that has all the info:

    Hi Jeroen


    Thanks for this info.  It is indeed the Quadro 2000.   So if I'm looking for better all round compatibility with Avid and other programs on my computer is my best path to get a newer card?  If so, what would be the 2020 equivalent of the Quadro 2000?

    Thanks

    Re: Premiere and Avid on same system with Nvidia Quadro 2000 - which driver?

    Hi camoscato

    When I installed Premiere 2020 I allowed it to update the video driver to it's preferred version.  After that, Avid (my main editing tool)   gave the usual warning that my driver was incompatible, but appeared to operate OK.  However, the video of my system in general became unstable particularly with online videos.   For instance, video thumbnails on a stock shot site went completely black and I experienced similar problems with Youtube playback.  Changing back to Avid's recommended driver solved this, but I'm concerned I am not getting optimum performance from Premiere, which seems to crash quite often.

    Ideally I'd like a set up which gives optimum performance for both NLEs.

    Dual boot is the only other system. 

    Personally I'd stick with the Avid driver. 

    I don't think it has a big impact on premiere and its crashing.

    Re: Premiere and Avid on same system with Nvidia Quadro 2000 - which driver?

    Hi Simon,

    When on a tight budget I would search for a used quadro K2200.

    If your budget is not so much an issue I would buy a new p2000. 

    If sky is the limit go for one the RTX cards but what you might gain from that in Media composer was, is and will propably for ever be, a better kept secret than the nuclear missile launch codes.

    Just make sure that you check if the card of choice requires direct power from your PSU and that your PC has that 6 or 8 pin connector available. Some quadro/rtx cards , like your quadro 2000, don't need it but others do.

    Premiere, which seems to crash quite often.

    Is normal, means it's working.

    Premiere now has acceleration to crash faster.

    Right now is not the time to buy GPUs. Completely sold out till at least may I recon.

    Unless you get another quadro, which hasn't been necessary for a while.

    Re: Premiere and Avid on same system with Nvidia Quadro 2000 - which driver?

    If it's any help...

    I have an older workstation that used a Quadro K4200 which was having problems with some of Adobe's software (crashes, no output to Blackmagic card) but was stable with MC using the recommended drivers.

    When I upgraded to Resolve 17 (which had been stable upto then) it also started to crash even with the latest drivers, so I thought it time to upgrade my GPU.

    I took a chance with a second-hand Quadro M4000 from Ebay (around $200) and it's been a positive experience all around. With the latest drivers from Nvidia, MC is stable, as is Resolve. I can even get video output to my external monitor with Premiere and After Effects. This is all running on Win10.

    At some point, these older graphic cards just hold you back, as they don't support later implementations of things like CUDA.
