I am upgrading my surveillance system from a 2 cam to a 6 cam system (maybe 8 in a year) and upgrading from an Arm based QNAP which was sufficient but heavily loaded to a new system most probably running Netcam Studio with the following specs:
- i5 6600
- 8GB DDR4
- 2x 4TB WD Purple Raid 1 (Windows RAID)
- 120GB Entry level SSD (For OS and applications)
- Windows 10 x64 Pro
The cameras will all be Brickcoms recording at 2MP at 15FPS continuously. Motion detection isn’t going to be a thing as there are constant movement in the scenes and the areas are semi public, though I may experiment with motion detection if I can figure out how to make it work for the scenes.
What I would like to know, is how do these specs (particularly CPU) stand up to this and if switching to a i7 6700 instead would be worth it?
I already purchased everything but I’m returning the motherboard due to some error on my part and while I’m at it, I noticed that the 6700 has the same TDP of 65W as the 6600, but has Hyperthreading and an 8MB cache vs the 6MB cache, so I was wondering if I made a mistake with the 6600.
