The trouble with hardware recommendations since the 20xx series has been that you always have to add "if you can get it for a good price" to the end of ANY recommendation. Will a 4060 TI with 16gb of vram work? Definitely. Will it beat a $100 1080? Yes. Is it worthwhile to buy it for FaceSwap? That's ENTIRELY up to you.
16gb of Vram is good enough for any of our models. Most of which were designed to work with 8gb 2060 tis or 1070s. The 16gb of ram will be plenty for most FaceSwap tasks.
Is the 4060ti fast enough? Unquestionably. I started training with 2x 970s in SLI. They'd take days to do what a 4060ti could do in hours.
Is it the right price? That's up to you. For some people spending ANY money on FaceSwap is spurious as it's just "for the memes". Others spend thousands on A6000s and consider them a bargain.
So I repeat: Will a 4060 TI with 16gb of vram work? Definitely. Will it beat a $100 1080? Yes. Is it worthwhile to buy it for FaceSwap? That's ENTIRELY up to you.
I would also add to the above, that if you are wanting to do this professionally (as in full HD + ) then 16GB is unlikely to be enough. You'd really be looking at at least double that, but it becomes hard to recommend for this, as 'professionally' is a broad term, and the prices start to become somewhat insane.
