I purchased a Dell R720 server to use as a hypervisor. One of the VM’s I plan on running will be used for Emby Server. This Dell came with an Nvidia Tesla M2070Q graphics card installed, which was a surprise.
I did plan on seeing how Emby ran on the VM first and if needed I would passthrough a graphics card to take over the transcoding roll.
Does anyone know how the Nvidia Tesla M2070Q would perform, or should I just sell it on and use a more suitable card if needed?
Transcodes would possible max at 4 streams and I’d ideally like to start using 4k content, so assume 4x 4k transcodes.
Side note, I have an MSI HD R6950 Twin Frozr III Power Edition/OC graphics card in my current HTPC that should become free once the server is all up and running. Would this AMD card be a better pick for the transcoding, or should I stick to Nvidia for now?
Thanks in advance for any info.
