Re: New GPU For NVEnc vs GTX 1650

Hello, Currently I Have GTX 1650 on My Ryzen Build 3970x (32c/64T) and i had Some how learnt that Nvidia GTX 1650 Have old nvenc Encoder, and I am Currently planning to go with Nvidia GTX 3080 The "new" 7th gen Nvidia encoder is in the SOME 1650, all 1650 Super and any 1660, 20xx or 30xx card. So s...

Re: RTX3060 vs RTX 3070 vs RTX 3080,which should i choose?

Especially with the AMD chips, you need fast RAM not a lot of RAM. The optimum for video encoding would be 8GB at 4000Mhz with a 2000 Mhz FCLK. Thanks for your advice,i also use it do other works,so 32gb is needed,i will choose 3600mhz or above. To expand a bit more on mduell's answer, for best per...

Re: NVENC versus CUDA and Hardware Encoding Performance

I have put together a dedicated encoding workstation with a GTX 1650 Super (Turing generation GPU). With my new understanding of the integrated encoder, it seems that all Turing generation cards use the same NVENC ASIC. This means my entry level GTX 1650 Super has the same capability for encoding a...

Re: RTX 2070 not recognized for NVEnc

GTX1660 is based on a very old card design, first generation NVEnc IIRC, that's just not supported in HandBrake. 2070, on the other hand, should work (as far as I know), not sure what's going on. No, GTX1660 has the exact same Turing NVEnc hardware as the RTX2070 (Turing), they both use the 7th gen...

Re: Crashing when transcoding 4K MKV

Yeah, like I mentioned in OP, H.265, H.264, and MPEG-4 all crash. MPEG-4 actually gets into pass 2 (the others crash immediately after 1st pass). So, I figure if I can’t even get the tried-and-true MPEG-4 going... Crashing the entire machine is almost ALWAYS hardware issues, the rest of your descri...

Re: NVENC using constant bitrate

Hmm, I tried with my GTX1080 PC and got almost an identical filesize. The filesize the CPU encoder gives me is different (and in the case of the file I'm testing just because it's small, is actually larger). Fair point that the GTX960 is an old card, but the 1080 should support everything should it...

Re: NVenc presets slider.

No, as the Nvidia encoder support matrix shows you need at least Maxwell 2nd gen for even the most basic h.265 encoding support (2 generations newer than Kepler) and even then it's not very useful. Pascal/Volta NVEnc adds more variants but is still not v...

(I don't have Turing or Navi data yet. Note the 1660 doesn't have Turings new ASIC as far as I'm aware. It's still the older NVenc version. ) No, 1650 has the older Volta encoder, 1660 and up have the new much improved Turing encoder. For the Turing series Nvidia uses the exact same (and same amoun...

Re: Intel Quick Sync?

Seems to be very confusing if the RF settings aren't compareable to each other. Not only isn't RF scales comparable between different encoders (x264 vs x265 vs QSV), it's not always comparable between different settings on the same encoder! If you use the same encoder and don't change settings too ...

Their answer is kind of hard to decode (to me) but my best guess is that they're saying that the file they got had 3 GOP but that their code incorrectly didn't pick up that x265/Handbrake is using "Open GOP" and as a result their code decides that it's really ONE large closed GOP, presumably it does...

Re: How can I test for successful encode in bash script?

True. But (ever since Maxym added more return codes, IIRC), any known errors will result in a non-zero exit code. HandBrake can't report errors that went by undetected I'm afraid… I guess if one wanted to catch even more failures one way for full encodes might be to compare the run-time for input a...
