ESXI 6.7U3: 3615 - 3617 or 918 for Plex usage (Hardware decoding)

Recommended Posts

Hello friends,

I decided to change my ESXI and remake everything on a new machine.

I took a DELL Precision T1700 (XEON 1270 V3 + 16GB), the graphics card is a Quadro Pro K600.

I have a Plexpass that allows me to activate hardware decoding on Plex.

Since my processor is a Haswell, I can imagine an installation in 918, 3615 or 3617.

What do you recommend?

Your opinion interests me greatly, thank you in advance

HW transcoding will not work under esxi, only SW. You need baremetal installation and real sn and mac to start HW transcoding.
