I have the posibility to buy an GT 1030 in the spect says CUDA 384, but I still donīt know if that card 1030 still better than QSV from i3 7100 or QSV still better than 1030 ?
If you donīt understand me feel free to tell me and I will to tray explain more detailed

new NVDEC and NVENC codec support table: https://developer.nvidia.com/video-encode-and-decode-gpu-support-matrix-new
I did a bunch of testing to find what looked acceptable to me. I settled for NVENC H265 through VidCoder. It may not look as good as the default x264 settings, but it saves time and looks good enough for my needs. I settled for Constant Quality 24. You can see where there is some softness but it's not really noticeable most of the time. At Constant Quality 26, I got smaller file sizes but I could see where the compression was causing artifacts.
The nice thing is that these files are nice and compact. My Roku Ultra and Xbox One S can both Direct Stream these through Plex without any transcoding. I don't really even buy Blu-rays anymore, favoring Vudu these days. I just took a step back and asked if it was really worth my time spending literally months compressing things through x264 and I just don't think it's really worth it considering how much faster NVENC or QSV are. The nice thing about Intel Quick Sync is you can get a laptop with an i3 or something and compress stuff in a fraction of the time versus x264 or x265.
By the way, I'd say that QSV on the newest Intel CPUs is going to be better than Pascal or older NVIDIA cards but I think the NVIDIA Turing cards are supposed to be best for GPU encoding.
