I just needed clarification before looking to source NVIDIA cards if the server even supports it.
I was confused about the documentation. I thought the NVidia cards were not supported at all. So if we get one of the suggested cards , NVENC can be used for encoding and NVCUVID can be used for decoding off the same card ?
See this. the specification writing is a bit confusing.
so it needs any one of these cards ?
- NVIDIA Quadro K4000 and above - Desktop Workstation
- NVIDIA Quadro K2000M and above - Mobile Workstation
- NVIDIA Tesla K10 and above - High Performance Computing
I don’t know what is required then for Quicksync support. Is a graphics card and specific cpu still required ?
With the quicksync requirements. It seems to suggest it needs a cpu with integrated graphics ?
2nd-generation Intel Core Processors with Intel HD Graphics 3000/2000 or later
3rd-generation Intel Core Processors with Intel HD Graphics 2500/4000
4th-generation Intel Core Processors with Intel HD Graphics 4400/4600
5th-generation Intel Core Processors with Intel Iris Pro Graphics 6200
6th-generation Intel Core Processors with Intel HD Graphics 510/530 or Intel Iris Pro 580
7th-generation Intel Core Processors with Intel HD Graphics 615/620
We first need to figure out hardware specs. The software mode option isn’t so great.
