I finally managed to get NVENC working in OBS on elementaryOS Loki. Had to manually compile ffmpeg with nVidia's Video Codec SDK and CUDA and then compile OBS. I am getting about 70% less CPU usage when using NVENC H.264 compared to regular x264. OBS supposedly ships with NVENC support included in newer versions of Ubuntu-based distros, so this ordeal may no longer be necessary after updating to the upcoming version of elementaryOS. #obs #nvidia #nvenc #elementaryos
Installing latest nVidia drivers "only" took like 3 tries. And many more reboots with troubleshooting. Had to confirm several intimidating messages the installer threw at me, like "the kernel was compiled with a different version of cc, are you sure you want to continue?" I guess so, what do I know. It's not like I'm going to be updating my C toolchain without an X-server. At least it's "kind of" automatic, I had to just keep trying to run the installation script while adjusting some settings.
The nVidia 20-series graphics cards have just been announced.
From what I can see, they managed to improve data throughput (by 75%) and memory access speed (by about 30%). The clock speed is the same.
If they have added an additional HW chip for RTX (ray tracing), I think the price is very interesting.

NVidia just released a sneak peek into their real-time ray tracing technology, presumably available with their next-gen graphics cards. Exciting stuff.
