3060 Ti or 2070 Super for video editing and processing

overhyped

I currently have an old GTX 980 and it's not exactly optimal for video editing and processing.

 

I can only stretch my budget to around $400, so my best choices should be an RTX 3060 Ti or an RTX 2070 Super on the second hand market.

 

But i'm not sure which of the two would give the best processing performance i need, so i would really appreciate some guidance.

 

I'm using Premiere Pro, After Effects and Topaz Video Enhance AI.

 

The GPU will be paired with a Ryzen 3700X, an MSI TOMAHAWK 450 MAX (for the time being) and 32GB of RAM.

Very close.  I’d go with the 3060ti myself just because it will have a longer lifetime.  If you can get a really cheap 2070super though it may be the better move.  You’ll have to change video cards again sooner though.  If you’ve already got a 2070super I’d say it’s not time to move yet.  Wait for the 40 series.

Not a pro, not even very good.  I’m just old and have time currently.  Assuming I know a lot about computers can be a mistake.

 

Life is like a bowl of chocolates: there are all these little crinkly paper cups everywhere.

If the difference is not that much, go with the 3060 Ti, a lot more processing power.

FYR.
