Claude.Rivet Posted September 2, 2014 Report Share Posted September 2, 2014 Good day! I need to build 2 display machines with 6 output each. They will be able to act as a production unit as well as a display unit, they need to be beast. 3 years ago I built workstations for a client with an SSD drive and a 6 output ATI card, it worked very well, I was able to play 16 HD 40mbps mpeg2 files with no problem. Considering we are 3 years later I was planning on dual m2 ssd raid0 or 3 sataIII SSD in raid, combined with an X99 i7 (8cores) and DDR4 ram (whatever is needed, last I checked WO was still 32bits, 3 years ago). Now one of the issue I am having is the graphic card. I need a card that can drive 6 output and was wondering what was the go-to card for that, they seem rare nowadays. Also I guess WO still doesn't use the graphic card much and does most of the processing on the CPU but this might have also have changed so an old card could do the trick but I need beast so let's go with what's best. Also input cards, I would like to have 3g HDSDI inputs (ideally 4:4:4) with minimal lag, ideally 2, or 2 DVI inputs, whatever has minimal lag between both. What would be the recommandations? I remember having a list from Showsage on how to configure Windows properly, probably got updated, is it availlable here on the site? Maybe you guys post example builts, haven't found some on the site but can't hurt to ask . One last thing: licensing is the same or it changed? (need a key to drive a display or to output QT movies or MIDI/DMX from the production unit), how much? Thank you for considering my questions regards Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
