I haven’t owned (or really even used) a PC in 15 years so I just want to know where I should focus for maximum performance converting lots of short lower quality (SD/web) video. I’ll probably need to deinterlace some, and maybe run something like DAIN to interpolate frames.
Graphics card - I’m thinking the RTX 3090’s 10k CUDA cores are what I really need. Dual 2080s or Titan RTX worth exploring? They’re still less cores than one 3090. Are AMD cards a bad idea since there aren’t CUDA cores? I know they’re supposed to be releasing something new next week.
CPU - I see the Topaz software is optimized for Intel, so again, would AMD be a bad idea? What do I want to look for here to optimize performance? 10th gen i9?
RAM - is 128gb overkill? Will speed and latency have a big impact (DDR4-3000 vs 4400 for example)
I think those are the main things to focus on. Motherboard, PSU, storage, etc. can all be decided on once I have those main items locked.
