The last desktop NVIDIA GPU I had was a 8400 GS, but I've had a few laptops with GTX 1060s. For the most part, I've had AMD GPUs, and for probably the longest time a RX 580. Ever since getting a Quest 2 VR headset when it launched, I found it lackluster on my RX 580, notably being worse than the Rift CV1 I upgraded from. It turns out AMD doesn't handle H.264 GPU encoding too ideally which then requires the overall resolution to have to be lowered for it to keep up. Overall, this made PCVR not as-enjoyable as I would have liked, as everything was a blurry mess. Forcing the highest encode resolution made everything look amazing (at the cost of it being a frame-dropping mess), so I knew that in order to enjoy the Quest 2 for PCVR I needed a better GPU. I wanted my next GPU to be NVIDIA largely because of that. Did about a month of trying to keep up with stock Twitter accounts and Newegg Shuffle and gave up, but I did queue up some entries in EVGA's system. Recently got the notification for a 3060, and bought it! I tossed it in my PC, did some quick tests out on Linux, and the GPU seems to work fine, but I plan on rolling a Windows 11 install in a bit to see how well things really work! I'll use this thread to share my experiences with things.
