For a fixed installation, we are using a Lenovo P510 tower with 2x nVidia Quadro M2000 cards, each with 4 Displayports. We need to connect 4 or 5 projectors, so we need all the outputs. The system drive is an SSD and there is a large data drive that we use for footage. We do play show footage from the SSD.
It's working OK so far though we occasionally get jerky playback with very large files (3840 x 800 encoded using DXV3). Things will be playing at 60fps then suddenly it will drop to 2fps for a second or so.
Any thoughts or advice? I was thinking of adding a second SSD for playback files, so it doesn't share the system drive.
