    If you are using a server rack why don't you add both boards and give them a switchable lockout router and allow assignment of one board to heavy graphics processing. You are running a timeshare system anyway. or is your bottle neck the network cables and system? or use a fan and branching network system?

    Why is the ram not being optimized more in the control panel it is using 7gb out of 32 installed.

    Every apparently solid assumption I've ever made turned out to be bs after only slight changes in the workload ... and so this video was rather humorous to me.

    I'm interested how that would compare with just using ffmpeg to convert the final cineform video file using x264, crf 16, ultrafast.
