Hello,

I am in the process of building myself a mATX computer to travel with me as I do video streaming gig and there are two amd cpu i'm interested in, the 5 5600 and the 5 5600G. They are very similar cpu but each have their own advantage.

First option is the AMD 5 5600G, it is the recommended one in the OPAL reference system (https://www.vmix.com/products/vmix-reference-systems.aspx#opal).
It has an iGPU but it use pcie 3.0 instead of pcie 4.0. I heard it prevent the computer from using 100% capabilitie of the NVME drive.

Second option is the AMD 5 5600, wich is a bit more powerfull than the 5600G, it use pcie 4.0 but it has no IGPU.

So i guess the core of my question is really, does the IGPU of the Amd 5 5600G provide an advantage for VMIX ? Because if not, i might get AMD 5 5600 (no G). If vmix do use the IGPU of the amd 5 5600G, i will get the 5600G instead.

FYI, Im thinking of using my old gtx 1060 as a GPU or getting something more recent/powerfull as the main gpu and a decklink duo. The mobo is MSI PRO B550M-VC.

What would be your opinion on the matter ?

Thank you for your help

@ Chromascope

You probably won't actually notice much difference between CPUs, but the Ryzen 5600G is slightly faster and runs cooler, which is probably more beneficial to vMix.
Since you will be using a GTX 1060, the integrated graphics is inconsequential, however, you may want to rethink your choice of MB as MSI PRO B550M-VC only supports one slot at x16 and three at x1, so the Decklink Duo 2 is not likely to perform well for you as it requires a x4 slot.

May i ask something if you know please. RTX 3060 how much better is compared to GTX1060? In terms of supporting encodes into vmix. With 1060 i can do 3 1080 H264 encodes (multicorder 2 cameras and 1 output) even with the driver that says it support 8 encodes. 3060 is able to do more than 3 H264 encodes?

@ nikosman88

The GTX 1060 has 1280 CUDA Cores @ 1506 MHz and is very good for average use with vMix.
The RTX 3060 has 3584 CUDA Cores @ 1320 MHz and so slightly slower but excellent for general use with vMix.
The RTX 4090 has 16384 CUDA Cores @ 2235 MHz and is currently the best card you can get for use with vMix.
All cards can do up to 8x NVENC h264 encodes, although, you will likely see the older cards start to slow down with 5 or more such encodes.

Thank you for your answer. that`s why im asking. The GTX series (i didnt try the 1080 but 1050ti/1060 3gb and 6gb version/1070ti) if i do 4 encodes (3 cameras and 1 output) and same time i do virtualset (2 or 3 angles of the set, with 1 virtualset is ok but to the limits of the render time) i see the render time goes up (gpu mem is ok as number and 3060 has also the resizeable bar but dont know if it helps to the encode process) and the message GPU overload is coming up.
So i assume from your answer that also with 3060 my workflow will not avoid the overload.
