Choosing between Quadro and GeForce graphics card

Quadro and GeForce cards perform the same in vMix except for the number of "hardware encodes" available.
 
GeForce cards allow for up to 3x hardware encodes. This is used for recording and streaming where the "Use Hardware Encoder" checkbox is ticked.
Otherwise the cards are identical so we usually recommend GeForce cards as they are cheaper.
See below for more information:
 
To determine the performance of a card, check the number of "CUDA Cores" in the specifications.
If it is similar to the a GeForce model it will perform the same as that.
