After reading one of the older discussions (https://www.vegascreativesoftware.info/us/forum/nvidia-1080-video-card--104895/#ca648307) about combining NVidia and AMD card on the same PC I'm tempted to try it.
I run Vegas Pro 14 on W10, i7-6800K, 32GB of RAM, old EVGA GTX580, PS EVGA 1000W. No plans to upgrade to 15 or 16.
The good old GTX580 CUDA works great for my MainConcept AVC mp4 rendering for internet but it's not good enough for smooth timeline with videos modified with heavy effects (color correction...). I know, this is nothing new for you. I found in this forum that smooth preview / timeline in Vegas 14 can be achieved with RX 480. Seems to be the most recommended card for Vegas Pro 14.
Q: Is it possible to combine GTX580 and RX480 (8GB) on the same PC without problems? Do you think that I could really benefit from the both worlds? Did anyone try this already? Do you foresee any conflict with drivers (please recommend the versions)?
I'd really appreciate your opinion before I buy RX480?
BTW if anyone knows where to buy a used RX480 please share it here. The new one is impossible to find. The miners got them all. I found some used on EBay, Kijiji and few on Amazon.
