Should he still get a radeon 7 for his kind of workload?

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

I posted a build for a friend's (video/music editing/animation rendering/streaming system) and someone suggested to get a radeon 7. Since the system isn't meant for gaming but for work he said the card is the best option for price to performance for compute power. 

 

Is that true? 

Should I go last gen or still stick with a rtx 2070 super ?

I found workflows that utilize OpenCL are still faster on RTX cards. Often I found a 2060 beating the Radeon VII in OpenCL workloads. The one area that the Radeon VII excels although is it's VRAM. It has 16GB. So if his workflow will utilize it, then that in itself is worth it, as nothing compares for the price.

 

P.S. Reddit hardwareswap has had these cards for SUB $500.

A radeon 7 isn't a great idea for OpenCL compute. Do some research on your specific workload beyond "(video/music editing/animation rendering/streaming system)". I need application names.


@BlueScope819 so I can see your post
