But it's not either/or. The GPU will be priority, once it's maxed out , transcoding will fall back to CPU. So you'll have both.

 

To add to this,    when he says "maxed out" this means one of the other video cards that have a stream limit like the 1050.   Once those two streams are in use and you do a third it will use the CPU...  However the cards with unlimited streams like the P4000 will just keep taking on streams until it starts to bog down causing skipping...    At this time it wont roll over to the CPU if the FPS starts to drop too low..    I would like to see that feature..  :-)

How many streams do you think the P2000 could do if the 4000 is doing 35?

35 going from 1080p to 720p 4mps      But, If i was a betting man, i would say 18 or so.. specs are pretty close.

Yeah, sorry, I should have specified that I was responding to the 1050 Ti post.

18 sounds perfect, I am going to be building a server around HW ACC and a P2000, thank you for all the info it has been extremely helpful!

I would still enable transcode throttling, it does a good job of staggering transcoding you can have a bunch of streams, they each transcode little chunks then take a break..  it will allow you to get more concurrent streams going.   See I have two transcoding right now, but neither are actually using gpu time, they are both on break and when they do trancode they are only doing it at a relatively low FPS...

Thanks for the tip! I’ll be sure to enable that.

there's a plugin to be able to use the GPU for transcoding on unraid. Figured I would put this here for anyone who was thinking of installing a windows VM like me.

I'd like to add to the knowledge of this thread,others may find this helpful if they plan to use Nvidia consumer gpu's to transcoding.

I am using this mod with a 1050ti and it is working well, also tested on a gtx 1060 6gb.
