Nvidia GPU transcoding comparison data.

Thanks for the link. This somewhat confirms what I suspected, minimal difference between a 1060 and a top end Titan V. There seems to be a greater improvement between the 2060 and 2080's but I'm not familiar enough with Nvidia's architecture and pricing to determine if that is a fair comparison.

 

Seems like for the average person running a "personal" server a 1060 is a pretty sweet spot for price/performance.

Indeed it looks like the 1060 6gb is the sweet spot. I have a 1050ti in mine and it does plenty for one family. Probably overkill.

I just pulled my 1060 out my server. It's not working the way I want.

I saw your post in the other thread, something is up with it. Never seen those issues your having, seems like we would see more threads with similar problems if GPU transcoding wasn't stable.

No, it's ffmpeg, more specifically CUDA. I was testing specific things that I know can be troublesome. As mpv runs on ffmpeg, I was comparing things from experience. The issues I was having, everyone would have them. It mostly centers around HDR stuff. CUDA has issues with a bunch of that stuff. I've been through all of that with the mpv devs. It just needs to mature and be refined. NVDEC can be handled differently to circumvent the CUDA issues. These guys will get there, but right now my Threadripper kicks the 1060's ass. So it's just a problem I don't need to deal with :)

You go all software? What threadripper cpu do you have?

Yup! A 1920X. I was interested in trying the 1060 because I thought it would be faster than the TR, but it's pretty close to being exactly the same. There's 5-10 fps difference (sometimes). I even threw subs burn in at the 1060. It was the same as the TR. And no issues with decoding anything, unlike the 1060. Even if I unlocked the 1060, the TR can still do more than it.

You talking about one stream or total? I have a 1st gen Ryzen in my sever (1800x) one of the reasons I wanted a gpu was to free up the CPU for the stuff. I noticed sometimes when transcoding hammering the CPU emby dashboard would be unresponsive. I haven't experienced the issues you had but I don't do much HDR, actually when I do it through Emby the few UHD remuxes I have HDR is hit and miss, even when its not cropped. But I am talking about on my Shield.

I posted about it.

I've been using it for a couple of months now without issue. I just did that hack yesterday to allow more streams and that seems to be working just fine as well. Maybe it was a hardware incompatibility with your motherboard?

OOPs TL/DR. Now I did.
