Can't choose GPU

Hi, I have next config.
CPU i5 7400 @ 3.00 GHz
Mainboard Asus Prime z270-p
Memory CRUCIAL 32 GB 2133MHz (2*16)
NVME 512gb for soft and OS
HDD 1TB for storage
GPU AMD RX 570 Pulse 4 Gb

 

PC Used to work and sometimes for games, but now there is a need to use in Adobe Premiere. My graphics card RX 570 does not give an increase in performance, what with it, what without it, the result is one, even fullhd video playback slows down. That's why I want to replace it with a version from nvidia. Tell me which graphics card is best for me? 1660ti or 3070? What is the difference in performance between them in my configuration? Does it even make sense to take the 3070 for my configuration? Won't my CPU be a bottleneck for this? Or should I even sell this PC and buy a mac mini m1?)
Target, want to do fullhd/4k video editing without lags and friezes

Video editing uses both the CPU and the GPU differently than gaming and simple media playback. Video editing is still heavy on the CPU (utilization-wise), meaning that you really need a beefier CPU in order to achieve best performance. Unfortunately, that i5-7400 CPU is too wimpy on both processing power and clock speed these days: It has only 4 cores and 4 threads, whereas video editing software typically needs a 6-core/12-thread or better CPU (8-core/16-thread CPU or better is recommended) in order to function at its best.

 

And LGA 1151 v1 is a dead socket: The only meaningful performance upgrade for the first version of LGA 1151, an i7-7700 (K or non-K), still costs too much money to justify even that level of performance increase. The 8th-Gen Intel Core CPUs, which introduced 6-core CPUs into the mainstream market segment for Intel, require a newer chipset as the socket (LGA 1151 v2) that it uses is physically compatible but electrically incompatible.

 

With that stated, I would dare say that even a GTX 1660 SUPER is overkill for that CPU. The CPU will still bottleneck anything above a lesser-performing GTX 1650 SUPER.

 

And if you were to buy a Mac Mini M1, I would wait a while longer: Current versions of Premiere Pro have some teething issues when running on macOS 11 (Big Sur) regardless of the CPU platform that Mac uses. In fact, no current professional-level NLE outside of Apple's own Final Cut Pro is certified compatible with macOS 11 yet.
