Supernoob, please guide !

Hi guys, i am setting up a separate PC for the learning of deepfakes.

I wish to know if an older built with an Intel 4790k coupled with an Nvidia 1660 Super would be considerable or its way to low for creating deepfakes. Thank you.

It is not an ideal setup, no. However it should work just fine, but will likely be a bit slower than a more modern setup, and you will be limited to lower resolution models.

However, if you are just looking to learn the process, then this should work ok for you.

Oh i appreciate the reply. Thank you. True, it is not the recommended set up, i guess i will first learn the process before going for anything recent.

Lower resolutions like 640 x 480, or much lower.

Model output size, rather than final frame size. You may be able to get up to 256px face patches with that setup, but when learning the process you are going to want to work with lower resolution output anyway (64/128px) as models at this size train quicker, so you will learn what works and doesn't work faster than waiting for a higher resolution model to train.
