    same way as they've neutered the Video Encoder on their non-quattro cards, to a maximum of 2 streamss at a time, and someone has made a patch for it? https://github.com/keylase/nvidia-patch
  • Nvidia has set a precedence that you no longer actually own your computer hardware.

    Another example is limiting the number of simultaneous NVENC sessions, because "obviously" only enterprise GPUs should be allowed the unlimited number of sessions. Luckily someone is maintaining a workaround for that too.

    You only need a group of people to reverse engineer the driver and then package the patch into something user friendly. Look at this for example. It's a driver patch so you can have more NVENC encoding streams. Not terribly uncommon for people who self-host things like Plex and run this patch.

    You're wrong though, look at this driver patch which unlocks transcoding multiple streams on consumer grade GPUs so they have same capability as Quadro. Been using this for years.
