970 to 1070 or 2060 for nvenc?

I'm have 970 and want to upgrade. Which one should I look at, 1060, 1070 or 2060 if I'm not very much gaming but would like to use GPU for HEVC encoding mainly?
Is NVENC block of 2060 improved much versus 1070? Or power of nvenc is similar between 1060 and 1070 hence I'd better prefer 1060 and not bother spending extra ca$h for 1070?

I'd prefer more energy efficient, silent and cooler one than any superoverclocking loud and expensive card
