I have been running BI for a few years but on an old machine that could barely handle the load - if I tried to playback or do anything remotely, it'd crash - and my video is critical for liability. I want to ask about GPU and also see if anyone sees anything wrong with my current build:
- Intel I9 12th Gen
- Samsung 980 500GB Drive for OS & BI Database only
- MSI Z690 Motherboard
- 32GB DDR5 RAM
- Adaptec ASR8805 RAID Card with battery backed write cache
- 4x WD Purple Pro 18TB (will soon add 4 more for 8x
Currently I'm not running anything Nvidia for AI - how important is this? I've had my eye on an Nvidia Tesla since they have like 4,000 CUDA cores and don't do graphics (which I don't need) - currently just using onboard Intel graphics. All recording is direct-to-disc and storing as long as possible. Are there any issues with an older Tesla card vs. a newer graphics card? Will I see much of a difference in AI, or is there a newer card I should really be looking at?
Feel free to ask any questions, call me an idiot, whatever - to see if I've got a good setup here. I currently record everything to a large single 50TB RAID5 array built from the WD Purple Pro drives. Recording seems perfectly fine. Playback in 4K sometimes struggles more than I'd like - so I try to review from the substream and only go to 4K as needed or for export. Overall it's a massive improvement from my old 6th Gen i5 with a single 10TB WD Purple drive.
Thx all - just trying to get this right - it's a big investment but it's for personal liability protection so I can't screw this up.
