I thought I would share my thoughts and usage on the above Processors. I have 16 cameras. 9 are Annke cubes at 12fps and 1080p 7 are Dahua 14fps at 2304×1296 To achieve a low CPU % on the Xeon I had to have the FPS set to 10 on all cameras and have Quicksync enabled as well as limit decoding. But if more then 3 cams were recording at the same time it would peg the CPU % to about 90%. Using the new i7-9700K I was able to turn up the FPS to the above specs and shut off the limit decoding and im seeing a 30% on the cpu. Both machines used the same memory. Just the processor is different. I was hoping to see a better CPU % using the i7-9700K. Maybe some more tweaking. So far very impressed with the i7.
