How many concurrent streams can it handle?

This depends on many factors that Plex uses to decide upon the method of playback to a client, this is based around (Client Quality Setting / Video & Audio Bitrate/Client file format support).
On average a 720p will require a CPU benchmark of 1500, and a 1080P will require 2000, however due to Plex ability to transcode and cache ahead, multiple streams can make use of this CPU time while another transcode session makes uses of the buffered content.
