Hi,

I am looking to build a hybrid COAX and IP Camera NVR (12 cameras total) using a "system on chip" mobo if possible (perhaps this Supermicro board https://www.supermicro.com/en/products/motherboard/A2SDi-8C-HLN4F).

The COAX cameras will be connect to a Geovision GV-800 PCI-E card, which I believe will do most of the processing work (not CPU).

Will an Intel Atom Processor C3758 suffice in handling the IP Cameras streaming in H.265? Just wondering if it would be wise to use an Atom processor for this as an i5 seems like overkill nowadays (but I could be wrong).

Any insight would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
