is this feasible?
I recently created a system to be used only with vMix. It is a case like a suitcase with the entire computer inside, with side entrances and exits.

I selected this configuration:

-AMD Ryzen 7 2700X 3.7 GHz Eight-Core AM4 Processor
-Patriot Viper Steel Series 16 GB DDR4 3600 MHz CL17 (2 x 8 GB) UDIMM memory kit
-MSI Radeon RX 580 ARMOR X Video Card

-I already have the 4K blackmagic SDI capture card

We usually use 3 cameras.

The audio comes via SDI along with the images (we studied the audio direction for a mixer before)

I was only a few meters away from buying all of this, but with a last minute problem I stopped buying and, after a few days, I read things that vMix is ​​not friendly with AMD processors.

I want to know, how much does it work for sure?
50%, 100% or in no way works?

Second, I can use the OPAL configuration (AMD Ryzen 5 3600X)
But does it work with good flow?
SDI blackmagic capture card with 3 to 4 hd cameras, sending to Facebook and Youtube, HD 720p quality, but I study 1080p without gagging.

Other hardware I intend to add are:

-3 monitors (one for me, one for video return, and a monitor for recording from blackmagic)

-1 Elgato stream deck (or x-Keys)

I also think, in the last case, 2 computers, both with vmix.
1 for cutting cameras without streaming, only output via sdi or hdmi

and another for lettering and streaming

@ euomauricio

AMD 3000 series CPUs are OK with vMix as they have improved AVX instructions.
(as evidenced in vMix's Opal Reference System)
I would still avoid AMD Radeon Graphics and opt for an NVIDIA GTX or RTX line of card.
