Closed Video Editing and Encoding - 680Gtx Sli vs single card & Quick Sync Tags: Nvidia Quick Sync Video Editing Encoding Graphics Last response: January 28, 2013 4:46 PM in Graphics & Displays Share melodymoony January 28, 2013 1:59:32 PM Greetings! What do you guys think is better for Video Editing/encoding? Single 2gb 680 GTX with Quick Sync enabled or 2 680s Sli I use Power Director 11 (I think CyberLink was going to take advantage of NVENC on PowerDirector 11, but I'm not sure if it's working yet) I also read that Quick Sync + Single card might be faster, but less quality than 2 sli cards? I use my Pc for gaming too and my system specs are I7 3770k, 16gb Ram, SSD Samsung 830 512gb and a 3tb barracuda. Any advice would be really appreciated, thank you.
