    Hi MIkhil - 

    Is this server going to be used for the Desktop client and Server, or just the server application?

    Hi Tony, it'll be used for both.

    Hi Mikhil - 

    In that case I'd go with the 8 core Intel, for several reasons:

    1. Intel has Hyper-Threading, so an 8 core Intel should have 16 virtual cores and perform about the same as the AMD.
    2. Intel has better accessories and driver support. So you can avoid headaches.
    3. We do not currently support Quick Sync but it's something that's been in discussion for awhile and may happen in the next 12-18 months.

    Tony, not to sidetrack, but you mentioned potentially adding support for Quick Sync. Any thoughts for nvenc/nvdec as well? (nVidia's hardware encoding/decoding)
