Mid-Range GPU for Adobe Premiere Pro

Hey Bellabichon, im back again... 

i was wondering what do you think of the MSI GeForce RTX 2060 Super ARMOR OC 8GB GDDR6 ? 

i had a long talk with my editor and he said that he won't be doing any 3D animations or heavy 6k/ RAW or RED Files. Mostly just Lightroom, PS, Adobe PP editing 4K. You think this card should be sufficient?  

 

That GPU should be sufficient for that workflow. The hardest-hitting task on your GPU will be 3D rendering, so if that's not in the picture, you can easily step down to the 2060 Super. The only noticeable difference will be your encoding times in Premiere Pro (GPU acceleration makes a big difference in video encoding), but if you can wait a few extra minutes when you're rendering video, I don't expect that you'll encounter issues. 

My GeForce TITAN Black just died on me and i am currently in the market for a mid-range GPU for Adobe Lightroom, Photoshop and mostly Premiere Pro, 4k editing, minor graphics using AE. Doing lots of color grading and a run through of effects creating glitches and such. 

Can anyone recommend a GPU that would provide me a smooth and efficient workflow using Adobe software.  

 

Thank you,

 

My current build is:

Intel Core I7-5960X 3.50GHZ
ASUS ASUS X99-E WS LGA2011

Corsair Professional Series HX1050

Two quick questions for you:

 

1. Do you need RTX cores to render ray traced content?

2. What budget range are you looking at? 

 

If you have a limited budget, a GTX 1660ti should do you just fine for most content-creation workloads, but if you have a bit more cash on hand, an RTX card will give you the edge in performance plus some future-proofing headroom. 

My System: 

AMD Ryzen 5 3600XT • Noctua NH-D15 • MSI MAG B550 Tomahawk • 2x8GB G.skill Trident Z Neo 3600MHz CL16 • MSI VENTUS 3X GeForce RTX 3070 OC •  Samsung 970 Evo 1TB • Samsung 860 Evo 1TB • Cosair iCUE 465X RGB • Corsair RMx 750W (White) • ASUS VG27AQ • Logitech G810 Orion Spectrum • Logitech G502 Hero

 

Got any questions about my system or peripherals? Feel free to tag me (@bellabichon) and I'll be happy to give you my two cents.

I have about $500 - $800 dollars to work with. 

Yeah there will be some ray tracing but not a whole lot. Only when i play Red Dead Redemption 2 in off time... does that count? lol

Alright, sounds like an RTX card will best fit your needs. I'd say your decision is between the RTX 2060 Super and RTX 2070 Super. Both should work just fine, but the 2070 will give you the edge in rendering performance, and gaming. 

 

Quick sidenote: because of COVID-19, most PC components are drastically inflated in price at the moment. That doesn't necessarily mean you shouldn't buy, but I would be a bit more careful with your price comparisons right now. PCPartPicker has a fantastic tool to track the prices of hardware overtime, so you can make sure you're not being overcharged. Just click on the GPU you want to price check, and scroll down to the graph at the bottom.

 

Good luck, and let me know if you have any more questions!

Considering his location is Vancouver, I'm assuming thats $500-$800 CAD, not USD. An RTX 2080 Super goes for $900-$1000+ CAD right now, so I'm not sure if that's an option for OP.

Thanks for taking the time to respond and give me caution in regards to purchasing at the moment due the current climate.

I was wondering - which brand for RTX should i go with ?? Asus, Msi, GigByte....  or is there one i should stay away from?

I don't think you really need to. Because video editing isn't a ridiculously GPU-heavy workload (other than rendering in RTX, etc), you should be fine with a 2060 Super/2070 Super.

As for GPU brands, there aren't really any objectively  terrible ones. EVGA probably has the best reputation within the PC community, but the main things you're gonna want to look at are Core/Boost clocks (higher is better), price (obviously) and cooling solution. Although all GPU companies get their PCBs from Nvidia, they tune the cards themselves, and design their own coolers. Feel free to shop around and compare, read reviews, etc. A GTX 2060 Super from EVGA and a GTX 2060 Super from MSI aren't going to have much difference in performance, but you should still try to get your money's worth.

That specific model does look like it's a bit on the pricy side for an RTX 2070 Super, but it seems to have good reviews, good clock speeds, and I definitely like the look of the triple-fan cooling solution. If you're willing to drop the extra cash, that looks like a great option to me.
