Which GPU to get


#1

What GPU would be better for CasparCG, for CG only, not video playouts, GTX 660 or Quadro K420? Mostly SD and HD flash templates for sport graphic and lower thirds. I currently have inside GT9500, but used for testing only. Allso using Blackmagic Duo 2


#2

It probably doesn’t matter. Your GT 9500 is 2008, and the GTX 660 is 2012. I doubt you can buy either new these days. Given that you might use the card for more applications than CasparCG, you might think of looking at current model cards.


#3

We are using gtx560 with decklink duo 2 and it works great, but planning to switch soon. What is the ceiling for CasparCG? I presume it doesn’t have to be tesla.


#4

I recently got a GTX1070ti to go with a BMD Intensity Pro 4K for testing 1080i25 workflows. I don’t know if it was a bad decision, yet - but so far it hasn’t run out of grunt.
