Best hardware for quick transcoding?


Recommended Posts

I want to update my pc or go to separate server build to host my emby server. What I wonder about is the recommended CPU (intel i, intel xeon, AMD ryzen 9 or ryzen Threadripper) and GPU (nvidia RTX, Nvidia Quadro or AMD Radeon RX).

@@Admin - Looking at the hardware link, I notice the Intel Core 2 Duo CPU, but no recommendation on AMD. Is there an architectural reason for this, or if one chose a dual-core AMD CPU with a similar benchmark score be basically equivalent? 


My first venture to "try it out" was on an old laptop I had laying around, but am thinking I want to go ahead and get something a little more specific for Emby Server. I anticipate zero to maybe 1 transcode stream. 


Thanks -
