  21. We are using Firepro w7100 since few years now.. we have no problems. but recently i heard Nvidia is better in few features like no need of active adaptors, edid locking option.. am thinking of using Nvidia cards in future builds, anyone can suggest me which card would be ideal for 4 out puts with 8gb memory or more. ??
  22. Dear sir, we assembled our servers ourself. we never set any of cores to in parked mode.. all servers has 8 core processors, among 8 cores, 4 cores are in parked mode. now we have enabled all cores through regedit value change. i just need to know . activating all cores all times would be a problem? also i need advice regarding watchout ethernet switch, which switch is good ? what is the minimum specs required for a switch?
  23. We are facing a problem of CPU core parking... i wish core checking should be added in tweaking list.. cos i feel newly assembled servers always run in core parked condition.. we recently found it out.. our CPU running on single core among 8 cores. that was shocking.. now we need to figure out how to enable all cores for best performance.. my question is does dataton has any advice on it? or is there any problem if we enable all cores//.. any method to permanently enable all cores?
  24. Hi i heard about HAP codecs been used in watchout.. what is the benefit of it? where its best to use? and what is the best format and codecs should be used when the pixel sizes goes more than 4k?
