RTX 2060 shows as $350 ($360 - $10 rebate) on the website. Is something else missing?

Quick note for those thinking of getting the GTX 1650 for hardware transcoding: NVidia cheaped out and did not include the newest Turing NVenc engine one the 1650 and instead put in the old gen Volta NVenc engine.

What does this mean? The problem with NVenc on previous generation GPUs is that it didn't have the greatest quality and it also produced larger video files. (Normally larger file size should give higher quality). This was because the old NVenc couldn't use B-Frames in their encoding. With the new Turning chips, they included a new NVenc engine that added the ability to use B-Frames. All the Turing GPUs before the 1650 included this new NVenc engine. Then the 1650 came out and is the only Turing GPU that doesn't include the improved NVenc.

So if you want the new NVenc, you'll have to get the GTX 1660 or higher.

Interesting note, thx for the heads-up.
