Crazy Output machine

Hi guys,
I have the chance to build a very, very powerful machine.

The aim would be having around 40 Full HD synched outputs from a single server. 
Do you think it is doable?

I was thinking of a Threadripper 3960x machine with 3x A5000, a quadro sync II and a bunch of Datapath FX4 to split the outs.

And since the output resolution will be very massive, maybe even a Nvme raid.

In the end, I think it would be less expensive than building 5 media servers...

 

Do you think I could reach 60fps smooth playback on Hap footage? 

 

Cheers,

Manu =)

The benefit of running 40 outputs from one server is of course that any hardware or software problem during the show will lead to a total blackout on the screen.

Maybe building smaller server and one for backup purposes might be more suitable.

I agree with you!!

You could build a single mammoth EPYC/Threadripper Pro based machine with 3x A5000 GPUs, running Watchout in 3x VMs on VMWare/Proxmox or similar... or you could build 2x much cheaper machines based on a consumer Ryzen/i7/i9 platform with a single AMD WX9100 each, running Windows on bare-metal, giving you 12x total 4K60 outputs for 48x 1080p60 via FX4s.

Will cost less and be likely more reliable.
