My fastest workstation is six years old running an 8GB Quadro M4000 for a GPU, Topaz stuff is slow but the computer does pretty well CPU wise for most things. I think I will get an Nvidia RTX 3060 when there is wider availability.

Just received my RTX 3080 (Asus TUF OC). A three month wait, but got it for the original price, over 100€ less than it is now. Amazing performance.

Luminar 4 cares.
Topaz DeNoise cares.
Topaz Video cares.
Photopia cares.

Those run decently on any Nvidia 10n0 card, as I've advised in this thread.

Luminar 4 is faster with improved CPU
Topaz DeNoise is faster with improved CPU
Photopia is faster with improved CPU
Topaz Video is faster with improved GPU

Recently upgraded from 4 Core Intel with Turbo max of 4.4 GHz to 12 Core AMD 3900X.
GPU upgrade was from GTX 1060 to GTX 1660 Super.


I've been doing upscaling on Topaz video. 4K to 8K.
A 10 minute slide show took 29 hours to do the conversion.
The conversion goes at about 1 frame every 6 seconds, all GPU powered. Pretty much the same conversion rate for all I have upscaled.
The program only uses about 8 GB of ram, ( I have 64GB installed )

So yes, all but Topaz Video run OK on old GPU.

So with regard to my post to HKGuns, what's your point?

Very nice minimal profile on the CPU water block there HK. I assume all of the "plumbing" from the CPU and graphics card goes to some sort of big radiator? I can't tell from the photo - does that go across the top or front, and is it one of the big 360mm jobs? Thanks!

Yes, those two hoses at the bottom of the photo are where the radiator sits.

Performance on what may I ask? I just don't even know what to use these monster cards for :)

Well, one thing is to play any modern game on 4K with all graphics settings set to ULTRA, it gives > 60fps all day long ( I use a 32" 60Hz monitor so that is just the right fps for me). I'll be checking the CUDA calculation power later, that should be even better. One thing I want to see what Blender (external link) can do with it.

Me too, my CPU rendering in cycles is much faster than with my GPU right now.

I will not be doing any video editing, just still photos with Capture 21

Capture One uses OpenCL. AMD excels in OpenCL over Nvidia.

Neither really matter though for Capture One.

completed the son's 'puter build on the weekend:
Ryzen 5 3600 CPU (std cooler)
Asus ROG B450-F motherboard
G.skill ripjaws v 16GB DDR4 ram
EVGA GTX 1650 GPU
Crucial 500GB M.2 SSD
EVGA 600w Gold PSU

seems to run okay (he's not complaining - yet!)

must say I showed him what my water-cooled radiator looked like for comparison & it severely needs dust removal!


some fairly old canon camera stuff, canon lenses, Manfrotto "thingy", and an M5, also an M6 that has had a 720nm filter purchased for:

You should have just built him a Cray Super Computer and have been done with it. :)

Well if I can turn out event photographs quicker to a client, I think it does :)

I'd love to see a side by side comparison on this. I'd bet there's very little difference between GPUs. C1 in my experience doesn't really use the GPU for much of anything. Doing a little more research it appears that it mostly helps with exporting... But given that the weaker of my 2 machines (the one with a GTX 960 4GB) exports large numbers of JPEGS in less than a couple minutes, I find it hard to imagine it being worthwhile spending extra money on a nicer GPU.

There's a thread over on the CaptureOne forums ;)
