    Building a new Server

    I am looking for some advice on building my next server. I am running Emby Server on a Windows 10 machine with an i7 3770 @ 3.40GHz Ivy Bridge. This is fine for home use as everything is Direct Play but struggles if we want to access it remotely, particularly for HEVC content or higher bitrate H264 as the transcoding pushes the CPU to its limits, lower bitrate H264 (1,024k or less) is fine. Access (away from home) is via Nvidia TV Shield 2019, iPads and phones (running Android 9 and up). I am looking to build a new server and have seen very positive reports on the Rocket Lake i5 11400 and as this has a built in GPU it would cut down on components. Typically the server runs 1-2 items at a time and never more than 4. I will probably start adding HDR content in due course. Is the Coffee Lake liable to be able to handle the transcoding duties or do I need to look at a Ryzen CPU and/or adding a dedicated GPU. Also is there any substantial advantage is moving to Linux (Ubuntu) instead of staying with Windows? Thank you. Archiel
