I am not sure if I’ve ever seen a P2200 or T1000 based Video wall box, or at least, not something like a USFF or SFF box. Although, it does depend on your definition of what a video wall happens to be. If it’s 4x4 4k120 displays you might need a beefy rack mount with multiple p2200s running SLI. For 4-6 4k60 screens that might be an HP t740 (or its DFI clone cousins) with an APU embedded Vega 8 and a E9173. As for something like this IEC4660 it’s probably only a physically large LCD (88”) with 1 1 or 2k screen that sits in an interactive touchscreen video wall kiosk situation that might require only a single Intel GPU.I know this thread is slowly drifting off topic, but that was such a clear and succinct description! Bravo!
When I put my current desktop together, it was an easy decision to passthrough the Nvidia GPU to the Windows VM, and use the AMD one for the host system (Ubuntu Mate 20.04 at the moment). The Quadro behaves VERY NICELY on Windows and doesn't suffer from the AMD VM disconnect issue, while the Radeon Pro runs perfectly on the seemingly mature and stable open source AMDGPU driver. I'm happy all around.
I think that Nvidia's current "embedded" Signage/Video Wall solution includes "embedded" Quadro P2200 or T1000. These are discrete PCIe cards (as opposed to mobile), and I don't know what the difference is between the "embedded" and desktop/workstation models. Maybe just software? In any case, I assume it won't be an inexpensive or super compact box if its got a full size P2200 or a T1000 in it.
