Claude.Rivet Posted September 29, 2014 Report Share Posted September 29, 2014 Good day, I just built two Watchout display machine using the knowledge found on these forums so I come back here to get your inputs regarding the fine tuning. I ran some test on both machine and some results are puzzling. The machine are: -X99 chipset -i7 5960x -AMD Firepro 9100 -AMD S400 sync module -Datapath VisionSDI2 -16GB DDR4 ram -128GB Samsung EVO ssd for system -512GB Samsung XP941 M2 ssd for shows -Encrypted WD 250GB HD used solely by Acronis with b/u images -Customized win7 64 installation (many features removed, services disabled and of course all settings configured according to the manual and past experience with building WO stations) My goal was to be able to run 24 mpeg2s at 40mbps concurently, done deal but according to my maths I would even be able to run more so I started intel XTU and made the graph show the last 1 hour results. I started the display and ran some content. I will spare you the details but essentially when running only videos I was able to mix 12 videos into 12 other videos with no hiccup, when including live camera feed trough the visionSDI2 I was able to run the same content but during the mix the live feed would greatly stutter and lag, to be able to run the live feed and videos and mix without any issue whatsoever I could mix 3 videos with 3 videos. I haven't tested many file format and I am sure they were not optimal but I had to figure where my bottleneck was or what part of my system was not performing well. According to intel XTU my processor never got used by more than 30%, spent most of it's time with only 4 out of 8 cores running and the most ram that got used was barely above 4GB... weird no? Other than that I realized that my processor speed was all over the place and that got me thinking, could speedstep and turboboost actually be detrimental to WO? Since the processor keep adjusting itself as the cues are sent maybe the stutter and lag comes from this adjustment? I am not able to test right now but in the meanwhile can you guys provide me with your knowledge regarding hardware and software settings that could help WO make the most out of these machines? thanks much and sorry for the long post regards Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
