This is specialized GPU, amazon wants $250 for this card. This is not for gaming but too cheap to ignore. Its price at launch was $5099 in May 2012.

This makes me think this card wouldn't be good for Plex. But I want to be wrong here, so please correct me if I am. https://www.elpamsoft.com/?p=Plex...ranscoding

This got reposted..why? Its a GTX 690 with a few things ungimped like FP64. Worthless for gaming for 2019 (not that Telsa cards can be used that way) and the CUDA function is so outdated. The lowest end Telsa today is about 20x faster with Tensor cores.

Yes Telsa supports more than 2 streams for encoding, but this has gen 1 of NVEC. The encoidng is garbage in comparison to the Turing NVEC.

What about older games? Say from early 2013 and up? Does this card actually work with PC Games at 1080p? If so great price for a cheap build.

Telsa cards cant be used for gaming. It has no video display.

You can buy a used GTX 690 in ebay for $80 if you really wanted one.

So I bought 2 of these for my server a few weeks ago. I was hoping for decent transcoding, to play around with pass-through, and because I like server hardware. I have 0 actual use-case for Tesla hardware, and I knew this going in. Here are some notes from my experience, your mileage may vary.
Dell PowerEdge R720, 2 x E5-2660, 160Gb RAM, Redundant 750w PSU, Windows Server 2012 R2 + Hyper-V Ubuntu

- Bought 2, one showed up DOA. Arrow did eventually process the refund but it took a little less than 2 weeks.
- These should only be mounted in rack servers or direct airflow optimized cases, like the tower versions of PowerEdge and Proliant models. These are not blower style, they have 0 active cooling and require the airflow of the case to provide all cooling. Do not throw this in a standard ATX case.
- Plex transcoding performance is weak, and will only use one GPU die at a time. You will get more perfomance for your money getting something like a p400 if you want a cheaper transcode card.
- You cannot or at the least should not mix this with Quadros/GTX. Only one driver can be run at any given time, and cross-product line support between Tesla/Quadro/GTX is lacking to say the least.
- This will not game. Even with the integrated video adapter disabled, Heaven Benchmark was sub 5 FPS.
- To this day I have not found anything that would actually use both GPU dies. I am still unsure whether SLI has to be enabled to get this working, but I could not enable it because these cards have 0 display outputs, and Nvidia Control Panel will not run on a headless system.
- I was unable to test Pass-through PCIe but what prevented this is unrelated.

Final Thoughts:
If you get a kick out of old server hardware, and have $40 to kick around, go for it.
If you actually have a compute need and this is usable option against more current and expensive models, go for it.
If you don't have a clue what this is, but saw a dual GPU card for $40 and got excited, my condolences, keep looking.
