    Video Card Driver smackdown! MC 2020.12 vs.AE 2020

    Hi all, hope everyone's safe and well out there....

    Quick video card related question:

    Adobe After Effects CC 2020 is asking me to upgrade my video driver to QUADRO DESKTOP AND NOTEBOOK DRIVER RELEASE 460 and telling me it may cause all kinds of instability issues if I don't. I was ignoring it until it fell over horribly just now. Thankfully I'm back up and running but keen to update if possible....

    BUT Avid MC says we should only use QUADRO DESKTOP/QUADRO NOTEBOOK DRIVER RELEASE 440.

    What's best? Ignore Adobe or (gulp!) Avid...?

    Any help and guidance appreciated as always!

    This is quite common. I stick with whatever app is my mission critical. Generally that's Avid.

    Avid tests their products (PCs, Macs, drivers, Storage, I/O) and guarantees that it will work if you stick to this configuration.That is very important because NLE are "critical" infrastructure.

    But they can only test available drivers at the time of the testing. Afaik newer versions are not varified after release.

     

    If you got a minute, you can try to update the driver and test it. If it is not working, you can roll back.
