Roman Der8auer Hartung managed to buy Intel Visual Compute Accelerator (VCA) 2 through eBay.
The Intel VCA2 is specially designed for cloud computing and seems to have a very advanced design. The device can be remotely paired on both Windows and Linux. Since it can be connected directly to the device, it has been developed with cost in mind. It will reduce overall costs for businesses, allowing more than one user to use the card, whether gaming or working remotely.
The VCA2 was released in 2016 and was discontinued shortly after. It has integrated Iris Pro P580 graphics which helps with the QuickSync video acceleration. The device can support 44 streams at 1080p resolution or 14 streams simultaneously at 4k. This is made possible using three quad-core Xeon E-1585L v5 processors that are on the board. These processors are based on the Skylake architecture. Each of these processors comes with its own memory bank that provides up to 64GB of DDR4 memory.
Der8auer is already making some progress to show the device in the system, but he still can’t find the full software solution to use the device.
