I hear nVidia nvenc is great and encodes H.265 50 times faster than software encoding. So I started looking around, and of course, here it is, even with free shipping!

So, what else does it do, or is it primarily a professional piece of equipment?

I don't know, I was just discovering my options for H.265 hardware encoding. So I found out it has to be 5th gen chipset. And this card turned up ... I'm postponing the purchase indefinitely. Software encoding suddenly seems OK again. :roll:

Two years later the price has dropped 100x. Got myself a GeForce GTX 1660. The speed is incredible and the result is pleasant quality-wise. Encoding a 720p movie with H.265 runs at 380+ FPS. 8O
