This card isn't worth looking at. It requires such a high spec workstation (in terms of memory, processor and gfx card) in order to work, that unless you are editing HD, you'd be better off using the workstation without the card.Accelerated export is NOT available to users running Adobe CS4 products, and Matrox have no intention of making that feature available. I'll just say that again, NO ACCELERATED EXPORT UNDER ADOBE PREMIERE PRO CS4!!! You can render faster than realtime with a high speed workstation anyway, plus matrox haven't bothered to implement multithreading so one's nice multi-core workstation chugs along on a single core!And finally with regards to HD, the card only supports HDV format, AVCHD, P2, etc are not natively supported. Anyway you must capture (via component input, no HDMI) any HD footage you want. This hardly speeds up your workflow. Don't believe me, have a gander at http://forum.matrox.com/rtx2/v...
I can`t even read the review since all these Ashley ads pop up and another pops up when I hit close. Later
