All else being the same, which is a better combination of CPU & GPU in the eyes of vMix?


Alienware Area 51m
9th Generation Intel Core i9-9900K (8-Core, 16MB Cache, up to 5.0Ghz w/Turbo Boost)
Nvidia GeForce RTX 2080 8GB GDDR6


OR


Dell Mobile Precision 7730
8th Generation Intel Core i9-8950HK (Six Core 2.90GHz, 4.80GHz Turbo, 12MB 45W)
Nvidia Quadro P5200 w/16GB GDDR5



Is it worth purchasing an older and weaker CPU for an extra 8GB of VRAM and NVENC advantages?

VRAM is not that important. The primary advantage to the Quadro is unlimited access to nvenc. So you must ask yourself, how many encoders are required by my typical production?

In general, the RTX2080 is a substantially more powerful GPU. Passmark reports it as over 50% more capable than the Quadro P5200.

https://www.videocardben...orce-RTX-2080/3888vs3989

Both are reasonably current hardware, so very capable. I suspect you're better off with the RTX based system.

Remember, in many cases, if pressed you can offload some of the encoding to another computer. Take program out via NDI to another system. That system could be very simple since its function is limited.

If you want a good combination, 9900k plus p5200.
All people speak about nvenc but custom edid is my favorite thing about quadro cards.
If you use hdmi output for live imag, custom edid is a must. Basically you can change a cable or add a second output without need to restart nothing.
