Appropriate Graphics Card for 4K editing.

Go to solution Solved by PorkishPig,

Woah woah woah, DO NOT buy that GTX 1070! 1070s are worth ~$200 USD.

 

There are plenty of guides on which graphics cards to use with Premiere, and you're on the right track with the 1660 SUPER. Check out https://www.pugetsystems.com/recommended/Recommended-Systems-for-Adobe-Premiere-Pro-143/Hardware-Recommendations, for example. It's a bit dated now, but it's a good reference point.

 

My PC specs are shown in my profile as of this month. Currently, I was thinking of getting the GTX 1660 SUPER from Gigabyte right here: https://www.newegg.ca/gigabyte-geforce-gtx-1660-super-gv-n166sgaming-6gd/p/N82E16814932295?Description=GIGABYTE GeForce GTX 1660 SUPER&cm_re=GIGABYTE_GeForce_GTX_1660_SUPER-_-14-932-295-_-Product

 

I thought maybe I could go above my budget and maybe consider getting the GTX 1070: https://www.newegg.ca/evga-geforce-gtx-1070-fe-08g-p4-6170-kr/p/N82E16814487247?Description=nvidia gtx 1070&cm_re=nvidia_gtx_1070-_-9SIAFA48NK3637-_-Product

 

My brother told me not to cheap out and so I told myself "Screw it." The real question apart from my budget, just forget it... What would be the appropriate graphics card for my system currently? Keep in mind, I'm still planning to upgrade my RAM from 32GB to 64GB.

 

My Blackmagic Pocket Cinema 4K is coming out soon, actually in a day or two. This beast shoots RAW 4K at 75 fps max. A computer that can handle this kind of footage is crucial. Especially when dealing with RAW, color grading, etc.

(I'm editing in Premiere Pro CC 2019 by the way.)

 

Give a list of all your recommended cards ASAP that would be appropriate for MY SETUP. Again, the specifications are listed on my profile.

(NVIDIA only please. I've heard that even the lowest NVIDIA cards out perform the best AMD cards, and Premiere Pro supports more of NVIDIA cards than AMD... I think.)

 

Either way, thank you for your time. All is much appreciated!

I'd strongly look at resolve and stop paying for PP. you get a free studio copy.

you need a large amount of vram which NVIDIA fails to give you. a 1660 super may do well.

I found this guide VERY helpful! An RTX 2060 (6GB) is recommended for 4K editing. But I'm thinking I might need to step up 2GB more and get the RTX 2070 (8GB) because of (GPU accelerated effects). I'm going to be doing a lot of color grading after all. What do you think?

Yo won’t be hitting 4K on a 1660 super I would say at least Rtx 2060, 2070 or an amd 5700 or xt model

Make sure that if you're going with an RTX 2070, you go with a RTX 2070 SUPER, this is where the guide is getting dated. The card should be perfectly capable for color grading and effects.

An 8 gig card will help for 4k edting.

Laptop: HP Spectre x360 13t, i7 8565u with 16 gigs, 512 gig  nvme ssd, UHD 620 4k

Other laptop: Acer Chromebook cb3 431 with 4 gigs, celeron n3060 with hd 400 and 16 gigs eMMC soon to be a minecraft server?

Board partner is really up to personal preference, and clearance in your case. The one you picked is fine, though a bit pricy because of COVID. The 8GB RTX 2070 would also be fine if you want to save a buck.

Also, this will do fine with the 850W Platinum I have right?

850W Platinum is a bit overkill actually. You really only need 650W, so you're fine!

Also, you could look for the 2060 Super. Basically the same thing a a regular 2070, with the same 8gb of vram, but cheaper then the 2070 Super.
