Programming Neither GPU has any impact here. Editing raster graphics It depends somewhat on what sort of editing (and how large the graphics are), but most editing can be handled adequately by a modern CPU. Note that GPU-accelerated editing is generally only present in high-end software; if you're using something like Paint.Net or GIMP, you probably ...

I ended up using the Aten CM0264, which is a matrix KVM switch targeted at the small-office-home-office market; advanced, but not too pricey. While the software is rather flaky (don't bother trying to do a firmware upgrade; it doesn't work), luckily the firmware it came installed with works fine and the physical build quality is excellent. It had 4 device ...

LGA 2011 processors typically don't have built in graphics like lesser models. That said nearly any modern card will quite handle video at up to 60hz at common resolutions. 4K might be tricky, but at worst you need a mid range card. That said, I disagree on the suggestion of a super cheap, old card. There's a few reasons. The specific nvidia line that ...

Apparently the solution is one of two possible options. There is a DisplayPort standard called Multi-Stream Transport (MST) that was introduced with DisplayPort 1.2 (Wikipedia, n.d.). The other option is a display with a VGA in/out configuration. LG makes a series of monitors that provides this function, the N225WU-BN Cloud monitor, which is designed for ...

Mark's answer covers most of the main points, so I'm going to add this: There are different types of GPUs. It's a common misconception that any GPU will work for any graphics intensive task (video editing, gaming, etc) - not so. The M series GPUs in your question are more geared to be editing GPUs - their optimization was mainly focused on calculations ...

According to this page on Intel's ARK, the integrated graphics card inside your processor already supports 4K video at 24fps over HDMI or 4K video at 60fps over DisplayPort. tl;dr - You don't need to buy a graphics card.

I am using Unitek Y-5115 with 15m cables for 2 years now and it just works. I suspect that the 2*ethernet cable extenders simply use analog amplification of a digital signal (number of pairs in 2 ethernet cables > number of pairs in HDMI cable), so even other format still pass (eg DVI, I've tried) and no loss of quality is possible (until eventually digital ...

I've had good success with the following card on Mac: Diamond VC500 It has Linux support as well according to the link, but I have not tested it. Here are the specifications: USB 2.0 Supports NTSC and PAL Captures Composite RCA or S-Video input 640 x 480 @30FPS NTSC video capture 720 x 576 @25FPS PAL video capture Included Software: Videoglide for Mac OS, ...

You may be able to use the video-transcoding capabilities of the Intel integrated graphics, but with no video port on the board, you won't be able to use it to drive a monitor. If all you need out of a video card is the ability to play movies and show desktop graphics (ie. no gaming), any low-end card will do. $30 will get you something like the XFX One ...

The best webcam I have used are the various models of Microsoft lifecam. With the lifecam, I have had good success with: HD quality Great color balance (the best I have had with any cam) Very good low light operation and color balance -- best I have experienced. The Lifecam Studio, which is a notch above the lifecam model I have used, looks to meet all ...

After some considerations I have decided for HIKVISION platform. I chose that platform over DASHUA mostly because of better support in my country and better firmware upgrade program. Multiple platform (like DASHUA, HIKVISION, AVTECH etc.) cannot be mixed nowadays mostly because ONVIF G standard is not yet widely implemented. Some attempts like Ozeki SDK ...

The RAM is probably the main change I would make to your proposed specs. Narrowing Down the Options If you're going to want an iMac, especially for video editing, you're going to need a fast hard-disk, enough RAM, and definitely a good GPU. This immediately narrows down the selection to a 27-in 5K iMac. Why? The 5K iMacs are the only ones offering discrete ...

After some consideration I am going with Plex layered on top of FreeNAS, and using a Chromecast for the HDMI head end and using the Plex/Chromcast App on my tablet to perform the control.

Thanks for this BTW. I had a similar situation: DisplayPort ports on computers, DisplayPort switch, DisplayPort monitor. And of course, the windows jumping around every time I switched the monitor. I tried and tried to find a pass-through EDID adapter for DP to no avail. All I could find were headless plugs meant to fool some server's GPU that it was ...

That should be good enough. I have a slightly worse laptop (aside from GPU) and it can run more intensive things like a Windows virtual machine or Unity game engine without a problem, so you should be fine.

You need something like this, where the computer is an all-in-one unit. This pricing isn't too bad considering what it is, and you don't have a ton of options. Note that it doesn't have video inputs for the monitor portion of the unit, so it does not classify as a television. This model also has a touch-screen, so no need for a keyboard and mouse.

A package like the KKmoon HW0029 or the FREECAM C310 would probably do it pretty neatly. To mount something on the poll you can use a bracket like this https://www.ebay.com/itm/Pole-Mount-Bracket-SUNLUXY-Universal-Column-Camera-Mounting-Bracket-8-inches-/282935918551

Chaining worked, but I had to check with the manufacturer for model numbers and to confirm it would work. Their tech team kindly tested it for me, to check that the HDMI EDID adapter would work behind a DP to HDMI adapter, and told me the exact parts they had used to make it work. The parts I used were from Lindy, and were a 41068 DP1.2 to HDMI 4k 60Hz ...

I've had success using two devices. One which is a self-contained device: Composite, S-Video, and HDMI to HDMI Converter and Switch with HDMI PAL NTSC Support - Monoprice.com and the other which is a video capture card: Diamond MM VC500 Video Capture Card References 240p — HD Retrovision How to get the best picture from your Retro games

Consider this build: Intel 8th gen i5 8600k G.Skill Ripjaws RAM. These ones can be from 4 to 16GB in each stick, but of course more costly. A motherboard that supports overclocking (z370 PRO4 for example) and has enough RAM slots, GTX 1050 Most importantly, your CPU cooler must have high TDP( like the H7) Also, your PSU I would say should be about 600w ...

This GTX960 seems to meet your needs. 3 display ports, and with this one or any OpenCL API, it meets your other criteria. Under $200 also meets your "As cheap as possible" criteria. Now, like others have said, most newer cards are going to meet your criteria, and using PCpartpicker you can select cards that have 3 display ports. So if my suggestion doesn'...

The fastest solution is a desktop with integrated+dedicated graphics that both support 2+ 1080p monitors, like this. That's around $440. The other solution is to build your own, of course! A machine capable of doing what you want would look something like this: PCPartPicker part list: http://pcpartpicker.com/list/gYDtgL Price breakdown by merchant: http://...

Get a capture card! The AVerMedia AVerCapture HD that you linked is along the lines of what you want, but it's not my top recommendation. Take a look at the Elgato HD60 S, a low latency USB 3.0 HDMI capture card (should work just fine with your laptop's USB 3.0 ports.) It's not exactly cheap by any means at $180, but it's the best I know of. You should ...

I would recommend the Logitech C920. It fits perfectly in your budget at $99.99. Here's the features it offers: 1080p Full HD Recording Dual Microphone H.264 compression Tripod mount Low light correction Autofocus Connection through USB

I have a 55' Samsung Q6FN. It's a QLED TV. It has everything you listed except for 3D. The current model is the Q70R. It costs around 1.2k USD. Check out the RTINGS review for this TV. https://www.rtings.com/tv/reviews/samsung/q70-q70r-qled
