GeForce GTX 1660 or GTX 1660 TI?

Post by linuxuser » Tue Sep 10, 2019 9:25 pm

For my new linux pc (Ubuntu 18.04, soon newer) I have to buy a new graphics adapter too. The decision is between GeForce GTX 1660 an GTX 1660 TI. CPU will be a Ryzen 3700X.

I know OpenCL is experimental with Linux and handbrake. Do you recommend the GTX 1660 TI or the cheaper GeForce GTX 1660?

OpenCL support has been removed so it makes no difference which card you take. Making encodes slower wasn't beneficial to anyone. (That's when it even worked). It's only real use-case was for those old, slow AMD APU's, Ergo, It's gone.

NVEnc I believe is identical on both in terms of performance (but, very limited support on Linux)
