Using RTX 2060 with RX 580

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

Hello guys, I am an Engineering student. I am currently thinking whether i can use my RTX 2060 with RX 580 (currently not have) to work in one system.

The system is used for 3D CAD (Solid Works) and for playing games, Machine Learning and other stuffs.

 

So i am thinking whether it is possible to use the RX 580 for the solidworks and RTX 2060 for other stuffs beside solidworks?


If it is possible, do you think it is needed? any other recommendation for my usage?

Thank you for your reply!

Looking forward for your reply!

You can have two different GPU's in one system but you can't link them together.

Is there a reason to not just run everything on the 2060? I don't think you can have the drivers for both cards installed at the same time so that setup will get complicated pretty fast.

No, unless for whatever reason the applications you use run horribly on NVIDIA's hardware but great on AMD's, which I highly doubt this is going to be the case.

It still run the CAD pretty good on the RTX, maybe i should wait until the RTX cannot satisfy the needs of my CAD then i am going to move to Radeon or Quadro. Thank you guys

You can.

Used to do so back about 8 years ago, I had an old Nivida integrated graphics chip on an ASUS AM2 board, paired with an AMD 5450 for a second display.
