Ok my main computer rig is in the signature below and this computer is on 24/7 because I share my Plex library with seven family and friends outside my home. I have had ten concurrent streams before (yeah) and four concurrent trans-codes before and this system has handled it like a dream. My problem is I had my gaming machine being on 24/7 to wear out and this system is not energy efficient.
Here is what I want to do. I want to build and energy efficient Intel machine for my NAS that must be able to handle this amount of streams also. Would a modern and efficient four core Intel handle Plex streaming and trans-coding as good or better than this older AMD 6-core?
I am just looking at great advice on processor as all other parts I know what I am doing. I've been AMD so long I just don't know what to get in the Intel world that would meet my needs.
