I am building a small, headless computer to run vMix & I am looking at ZOTAC options. Who has an opinion on which graphics card I should chose, the NVIDIA Quadro RTX 3000 6GB GDDR6 or the NVIDIA Quadro P5000 16GB GDDR5? There will be no more than 2 displays, recording of 2 HD feeds. The single camera will be sent back via vMix Call.
Thanks

I'm guessing you're looking at Quadro since GeForce cards are more or less impossible to find?

I am going with the Quadro cards because that's what the ZOTAC boxes come with. That and the limit on hardware encodes that the GeForce cards have make the Quadro cards a better choice.

You won't hit the encode limit with the given scenario, but it makes sense to futureproof.

Personally, I would go with the RTX 3000. It's newer and will likely be more efficient than the older P5000.
