smoothmove Posted June 25, 2021 Share #1 Posted June 25, 2021 (edited) Motherboard: Asus B550m-Plus CPU: AMD Ryzen 3950x RAM: 16GBx2 Gskill Ripjaws GPU: AMD 5500XT 8GB HDD: Seagate Ironwolf 10TB Power supply: Corsair 450watt SFF I turned off SMT in the Bios as it only saw 16 cores anyway. Turned on CSM for legacy boot and it worked. Testing for Plex encoding and it is light speed faster than my 920+. CPU usage encoding is like 10% and multiple encoded offsite streams seem to not raise it beyond 40% I bought it for a gaming station and I never game. Had it sitting here. I am now debating on switching over my Plex server to the Ryzen. Is there a CPU benchmark to try? A way to test the amount of transcodes that can be done simultaneously?
