I would like to ask multiple questions.
We are software development company that actually works on a project that uses multiple simultaneous video encoding proccesses (8 to be exact) in one appplication using MPlatform SDK.
We receive signal from SDI input, convert it using your nvidia codecs, and write it to file. The quality is lossless ( NVENC h264 lossless )
Currently we are using quadro P2200 graphic card, but if we run more than 3 simultaneous encodings, we get high number of unprocessed frames, after examination, we found out that graphic card is not fast enough for this kind of job and runs at 100% usage during this.
My questions are:
Will upgrading to higher model increase the number of possible simultaneous encodings ? Like Quadro P6000
Are number of cuda cores relevant ( used by nvenc dedicated chip ) during encoding ?
In case that question number 2 is true, what will happen if we use multiple GPU-s and connect it via SLI, will we get full potential of both ( or maybe 3 ) graphic cards for this type of encoding ?
Is there any other way other than change of video quality to get better results ?
Thank you for your answer
