I have a Dell PERC h710 already so will probably sell the 9361 onWell, the 9361 isn't useful.
I've been using the h710 on my Dell t130 for a long while and it's worked fine in HBA mode. Can't remember if a flashed it but I think I updated itThe H710 is a 2108 based RAID controller as well, although I think I might have seen references to someone having figured out how to lobotomize them to run HBA firmware, something that I haven't tried, but doesn't shock me that it could be possible.
The H710 is *only* going to be acceptable if it shows up as an HBA running firmware 20.00.07.00-IT
That does not take quicksync into account though, which this CPU supports ;-)The Xeon E-2176G gets a Passmark score of 13698. From the Plex website…
Very roughly speaking, for a single full-transcode of a video, the following PassMark score requirements are a good guideline for the following average source file:
- 4K HDR (50Mbps, 10-bit HEVC) file: 17000 PassMark score (being transcoded to 10Mbps 1080p)
- 4K SDR (40Mbps, 8-bit HEVC) file: 12000 PassMark score (being transcoded to 10Mbps 1080p)
- 1080p (10Mbps, H.264) file: 2000 PassMark score
- 720p (4Mbps, H.264) file: 1500 PassMark score
