I stumbled on this price while researching building a Plex server...which I started to do because of the prior P2000 FP deal for $350. The need for the server has increased so today I was pricing out hardware. I randomly went to Dell and there's this 17% off coupon that dropped the total price from $379 to $315.39! My total price + tax to PA was $334.31.

I did not see this on the main consumer site.

https://www.dell.com/en-us/member...d/490-bdtn

Coupon code is: SAVE17

While checking out it says this is a door buster. So it may sell out quickly!

EDIT: Added YMMV as my account is still linked to my old employer. There are three discounts on the page for me: $150 off, 17% off and 5% off for members.

This item still gave me the funniest line I've read anywhere on the internet:

"Today I learned people use this for streaming"

Oh yes! Snagged one of these for one of my workstations on the last deal for $325, tax made it $355. Just grabbed another one for the other workstation for $315, tax makes it $337! Best price I've ever seen for this awesome card.

Big ole THANKS to the OP!!!!!

You can see above some reasons why you may want this Quadro card over a GTX or RTX. If you want / need 10 bit color through OpenGL (Photoshop for most of us), you MUST have a 10bit monitor and a Quadro card, or the Radeon equivalent. See how to set up here:

I don't. There are plenty online in forums and on Youtube. For my server, I bought a Lenovo TS440 from a deal I found on SlickDeals years ago, sold the 4GB of memory it came with, replaced it with 32GB. Slowly purchased 8x 5TB Hard Drives from deals on Slickdeals as well, installed FreeNAS on a USB Flash Drive. Created Windows Shares for my media, set the 8 drives up on a RaidZ2 (Raid 6), created a Jail in FreeNAS using the GUI, installed plex using the built-in plugin, pointed it at my media, and that was it. I've made smaller upgrades over time, but for the most part, all I did was add drives and memory.

Again, there are a TON of guides online. But it's not terribly difficult. I commonly see Dell Server deals on here. They would work equally well. You can also use any old desktop and build yourself a media server. I chose FreeNAS for lots of reasons, but there are plenty of great OSes out there that can all do Plex or the like.
Omg that's an overwhelming lot of information and it sounds quite complex. Wish there was a single device or "package" (for lack of a better word) that already came with all the things you mentioned. Really looks like a lot of things to, first learn, and then, do (set up). :-(

Most of that sounds alien to me. FreeNAS, RaidZ2, Jail .... Isn't there like a single hardware+software package with a UI that total idiots and newbies can use?

True, but for sake of completeness I do need to note that you can also do 10-bit OpenGL (again, PS) with an AMD Vega FE (Frontier Edition), both air-and-liquid-cooled versions. This card was billed as a work/play card, so it runs both 1) the professional/enterprise drivers for 10-bit OpenGL, and 2) the highly-updated gaming drivers on a relatively-modern beefy card. In theory it's supposed to be capable of switching between drivers without (un)installs... but I have not found that to work well in practice. To cover both bases (or just high-GPU-power professional applications; note that the Vega FE is not suitable for mission-critical engineering as it does not come with necessary certifications for those) in the true professional/enterprise Quadro/Radeon Pro range would otherwise put you deep into 4-figure territory.

Aside from the upfront cost, the other cost is juice use. It's 14nm and not terribly efficient.

They're not very common terms so they probably should sound alien! I think a lot of the reason that many people like to use FreeNAS, Unraid, Ubuntu, and other OSes is because they're free. For example, you could easily buy a desktop w/ Windows and just install Plex and point it at your storage and you'd be done. But the cost of that machine will have the cost of Windows worked into it (around $100 or so). So when I bought my server, I wanted something without an OS so I could use a free one. I also knew that since I wanted to use FreeNAS, I wanted a Server/Machine that had a Xeon CPU so I could use ECC Ram, which FreeNAS likes. You could just as easily find any desktop with Any OS, and any modern CPU and it would run Plex fine. Heck, I used to run Plex off an old Laptop I had and it worked fine locally and remotely. But now, my server supports my family and a handful of friends, and the Laptop wasn't enough.

Like I said before, The internet is your friend. Decide on an operating system, and then google it. For example, when I decided on FreeNAS, I just googled, "how to plex freenas" and got tons of results with great tips and advice. "how to plex windows" sounds like it'll be more up your alley.

This page touches on a few options for setting up a plex server: https://www.makeuseof.com/tag/bes...ex-server/

Yes.

There was a method released by the community to unlock more than two streams on consumer hardware in Windows. The P2000 "just works" and is the "right" way to do things but you can get a faster more capable GTX card (i.e. 1060) unlocked and it will support more streams at a fraction of the cost.
How do you unlock the consumer version? Thanks.

if you want to convert 10bit to 8bit with Adobe Premier, does a Quadro card better than the GTX/RTX? I don't have a 10 bit monitor but I do have a drone that records in 10 bit and does an excellent job at it.

Wow. That's good to know. Never heard of that card. Reviews of it aren't great, and it's more than double the cost of this Quadro p2000 deal. Would be nice if Nvidia would add / enable some of the Quadro properties, at least the 10bit OpenGL, on some of their GTX / RTX cards. I know I would pay a premium price for that card if they ever do.

I have some experience with Quadro cards with Solidworks. They are typically a fraction of the speed of their GTX counterparts. The GTX cards periodically have driver issues with Solidworks to an extent that it becomes unusable. Since they're not officially supported, drivers and Solidworks updates don't address the problem for months, if ever. There are also certain video accelerations in Solidworks that don't work at all with the GTX cards.
With the Quadro cards everything works on Solidworks. Unless it's specifically required for your software I would stick with GTX.
This is unusual. I know when I checked a couple years back, both Quadro and Firepro would dominate the consumer cards at SW even with huge clock speed disparities. Granted, that was a generation or two back.

I understand that people have asymmetrical setups, However, shouldn't THAT be what the money is spent on Rather than this half ass solution of watching double degraded streams ?

I agree transcoding has gotten better in quality, But that's only because we have faster hardware, Not a better transcoding process.

When they say equivalent, they only mean, if you stand far enough back , or squint your eyes enough , you won't be so bothered by the degraded-ness..


There are much better solutions, 23awg network cables. OR just buy Network AC cards, they have more than enough bandwidth, used 580 or 1060s off ebay, AND it's cheaper than running plex.


Best solution is obviously, just walk your ass down to the media center room. Hahahaha.
I've never quite understood the allure in real time transcoding going back to defacto xvid/divx days other than playback on devices that don't support native codec support (non existent these days) or limited bandwidth/cap while traveling I guess.

I suppose the practical use might also be to watch a 30-50GB rip on a portable device or like case use. Sure as hell not to transcode 3-8GB rips, that's just dingy. But then I've always favored kodi/xbmc/xbmp to plex & have never really been big on streaming while out, except going wayyy tf back via memory lane, using Orb on candybar ph as proof of concept. Maybe legit if you travel for work though,particularly if one is a hardcore sonarr/radarr pvr type. I think walking through a park and smelling some dank pine might be more enjoyable at this stage tbh.

VDPAU levels determine HEVC transcoding capaility.

Feature Set E is "kinda sorta supports it" but effectively it does not support it due to the limitations.

Feature Set F or higher is where you get cards that can handle all the modern resolutions and codecs.

The K220 is built on the GK107 chip which supports Feature Set D which means no.

That being said, your K2200 is probably okay for h264 and 1080p, but so are CPUs for that stuff.
Yeah, my k2200 is almost 3 years old... lol thanks for the info.
