Hi, I browsed through the forum for Graphics card and what I found was dated from 2012 down. I'm sure there has been upgraded versions since then. I'm thinking of buying a computer (xps 8940) that has AMD graphics card. I thought the Nvidia was more for video editing, but now I'm comfused. I appreciate if you could help me with this - which graphics card is best for video editing, AMD or Nvidia? Thank you. Vivian.

According to the Dell website, the NVIDIA® GeForce RTX™ 2060 6GB GDDR6 is recommended for the external video card on the xps 8940. I don't disagree with their selection.

Nvidia Video with CUDA capability is what really moves the needle when it comes to encoding video. AMD is good, but Nvidia is better.

If you plan to do a lot of video production Nvidia CUDA capability is what you need

I'm afraid that PD hasn't supported CUDA for many years, and the only hardware it can access for producing is NVDEC/NVENC. This chart shows the capabilities of various nVidia GPUs.
