I was having the same hour long default training times so I picked up a PNY GeForce GTX 1650 at Best Buy for $179

Win 10
I9 10 core 10850K
16G Ram
GTX 1650 running the default NVIDIA driver that Windows installed automatically V
Default Training under 3 min usually ~2:50
Advanced Training Under 20 min ~19:15

These are real close (even better) times that some are reporting with $530+ RTX 3070s.

A few things of note: I do not have any monitors hooked up to the 1650 yet so it is just really being used for ToneX. Video is through a Dell D6000 USB docking station. Also, the 1650 runs pretty quiet. I thought that the two fans on it might cause a noise issue but it turned out to be a non issue.

FWIW, I also did a capture on a MacBook air M1 (7 core GPU) w/8g Ram and Default Training took about 15 Min.

Hope this helps.

Hi all!

Just for your concern, I had a NVIDIA GTX 1060 6gb with a Ryzen 5 5600 X and 32gb RAM and advanced training took (total) around 25 minutes. I changed the graphics card for a Radeon RX 6600, which is newer and performs better in games. It took advanced 5.5 hours. Does this avoid the capturing process? No, but it's really tedious. You can of course go ahead but it's really annoying. I don't know how the training process works, but it's a HUGE difference.

I had to do it with my laptop to speed the process up, it's got an Intel i7 (3 years old), a GTX 1650 and 16 gb RAM. It takes (advanced) 40 minutes.

Maybe there could be a software update to make the program use all Radeon graphics' potential.

Rock on!

I had a NVIDIA GT610 and Intel Core i5-3470 setup with 32 gb memory in my old trusty desktop PC and I couldn't get a capture to complete, even though it could do most everything else I threw at it. I let the training run overnight etc but ultimately nothing. I just upgraded to NVIDIA GTX 1650 and i7-3770 and I am getting advanced training done in around 30 minutes with default in about half of that. Pretty cool and a relatively inexpensive upgrade.
