  1. i have build quite a lot of these systems. These are typically enterprise plattforms which make certain things easier and somethings harder. Go for Gen 4 PCIe - RTX A5000 should be the right card - fill every memory channel - set your bios correct - consider buy a server of the shelf or from me Dual CPU is working good.
  2. Switch off the interrupt moderation in your production PC card and your clients. Maximize send and receive buffers. Intel cars are cool but if you want to reach maximum performance go for Melllanox or Atto cards! Keep in mind also the max write speed of your media disks. M.2 is getting hot after 30 seconds. So go for u.2 or PCIE cards. PM1725a Intel P4510 or HGST....
  3. I currently redesign the Wiki. Please find the Bios tweaks here: Sleep States: Talking about real time applications you should get rid of all settings which makes your CPU going to save energy. They are often called C- States and should be set so that your PC never sleeps. Sometimes you can also find a setting which is called "Block Sleep" (S3 State) So thats what you need to check and set to not stop your mediaserver from working at full power. Some mainboards have high performance modes. This is a good starting point. But dont just use auto tuning settings! Intel Speed Ste
  4. Hey Weckmuller. The intel SSD 750 series is quiet old right now. Go for Samsung PM1725a or any 8Lane SSD. Intel P4510 is also ok. Depends if you want to play uncompressed or not.
  5. Get the latest AMD driver. They added the functionality to manually force your GPU fan to run at full speed all the time. This might help. Do you use high quality active dapters? Also try what Thomas said. Get a new generation GPU might also help and can be easily changed without settimg up your whole machine completly new.
  6. I built based on a Xeon W-2145. (Xeon w-2155 is also ok if you want to use the machines for rendering etc.) It will run at 4,25 Ghz in all 8 core turbo mode. Note that you should populate the Ram slots with 4 memory channels. These are very important for uncompressed workflows! If you want to spent more money: Im testing Xeon Gold 6144 and 6146 this month. They have 6 memory channels available. These are usually Dual CPU boards so they come at a certain price point. Its also a massive difference if you want to play 4K 60 or 4K0 streams. With TGA(A) the current maximum is 4 layers of
  7. Did you check the following points? https://watchlab.net/wiki/Troubleshooting_FAQ (Happy for more advice on this!) What EDID are you using?
  8. Did you checked the "syncronisation chain master" button in the display settings? Without it the system will not deliver the power it has.
  9. Some things to check: - How long are your file names? - How many hops (switches between production and display) does your network infrastastructure has? - What switches are you using? - Do you checked cables? - I can have a quick look at the project file if u pm me.
  10. Well I would say if you can wait then go for the new Newtek HDMI 2.0 NDI converter box and buy 4 of them. If you need something now go for the Decklink 8K which has 4 12G SDI Inputs and put a simple HDMI to 12 G converter in front of it. For handling 4x4K inputs I wouldprefer a WX 9100 which give you a lot more overhead but I would give it a try first...
  11. The goal should be to have the CPU at maximum speed state and to minimize the time to ramp up the speed. I will add a little video later. Did you set the CPU minimum frequency to 100 % in Win 10 edvanced energy settings? This should be done in every case independent from the os! If so the CPU will still ramp up and down a little bit, but arround the maximum possible speed of 4,3 Ghz. "Overclocked" is not the right term in my opinion as people may think this is a dangerous thing. You can not overclock a Xeon CPU in the way people think about overclocking. You are setting the Intel tur
  12. Didnt tested with Win 7 so far but its just a Win 10 feature I guess. What is your mainboard / CPU? You should be able to hand over the task to the cpu. https://pureinfotech.com/windows-10-fall-update-enable-intel-speed-shift-skylake/ Never been happier than with the latest Win 10 LTSB update and AMD 2018Q2 drivers!
  13. Of course a question of resources but we sometimes apply an additional HD output just for timecode / countdown display reasons. Feel free to use it (50fps). Send me a pn for the simple ae project. vimeo.com/267041786
  14. I just want to quickly share some basic network tweaks. When dealing with 10G and 40G networks there are settings in the network drivers which become very important for the file transfer speeds. As the Intel X-550 series card is one of the most used cards I will explain with their settings. Most other cards use the same names for the settings: Interrupt Moderation: OFF / The interrupt moderation prevents the CPU from getting the load from the network card. Means when to much traffic is incoming the network card will not give away load to the cpu but will simply "moderate" the in
