Enjoy overpaying for a card significantly slower than the 6400 https://www.techpowerup.com/296063/intel-arc-a380-desktop-gpu-does-worse-in-actual-gaming-than-synthetic-benchmarksI'd sooner buy a Intel Arc A380 6GB for $153 + shipping from China than a 6500XT.
I've been wondering over the past 2 yrs if he's much overrated. People with big ideas are not that rare, those with realizable ones are, and the people who can navigate the pitfalls to actually accomplish them even rarer. Raja is definitely not in the last group, details matter.Shows why Lisa was right in firing Raja (or made him quit, whichever is true). He might know how to make GPU computing work but trying to force a GPU compute device to run games is not something he has figured out after all these years.
Assuming Raja is really talented, contrast him and Keller in their "lust for power", and who appears to be more effective. Raja would never accept a subordinate role.Raja is probably one of those types that's a really talented engineer, but an awful manager. The industry is rife with people who were promoted past their competence.
3rd time? no wayCorrection: Second effort. This is DG2. Maybe third time will be the charm?
First you must find AV1 videos, or even on Youtube AV1 videos are like Elephants in a ballet studio.That isn't the point. HW decode is more energy efficient then SW decode. With current insane energy prices, every little bit helps.
That plus the fact even the most basic Celeron (G6900) from Intel has full HW support. Its just a bit disappointing, that's all. AV1 does stand to become very common.
Red has no Nvidia NVENC, it is a big minus because every AMD APU has VCN.Rembrandt APU has AV1 support, or in AM5 socket every new CPU will have iGPU/VCN with AV1 support.1030 is not an upgrade over latest AMD APUs, it is even a downgrade in many games vs 5600G/5700G.
You don't think it matters? Try paying 57¢ per KWh, and get back on that. Spot prices here have been above $1 per KWh during peaks. Probably with worse to come due to a gas crisis in Germany.Desktop CPU+iGPU power consumption 4K/30 AV1 Youtube playback is around 50W.
3 hour movie, at 50 watts, at 57 cents per kilowatt: 9 centsYou don't think it matters? Try paying 57¢ per KWh, and get back on that. Spot prices here have been above $1 per KWh during peaks. Probably with worse to come due to a gas crisis in Germany.
If you can reduce that to 25W, that is literally double the playback time per KWh you pump in.
50W = 20 hours video per KWh. 25W = 40 hours of video.A cost difference of five cents is insignificant.
Wow! That is amazing.Most monitors today really shouldn't be using much more then 20W. My "TV" uses 8W. As measured with a power meter.
I've always been slightly obsessed with efficiency. Am I glad about it right now? Being a bit weird has saved me a small fortune with the current climate.I guess my watt consumption is in a completely different ballpark compared to yours. Along with that, what I view to be significant consumption.
Multiply your current bill five times. That gives a reasonable approximation of what we've experienced.All of these electric costs seem irrelevant to me, as soon as I plug my car in they cease to be a significant component of my bill.
Electricity average price in Denmark is ~$.35 per KWh from a quick Google search. That makes the cost difference a bit under $10. Even doubling for higher prices lately is only $20 per year. For most people that's just eating out for lunch one less time.50W = 20 hours video per KWh. 25W = 40 hours of video.
Across a whole year that is a significant difference. If you f.x. watch 3 hours of whatever video/tv a day (about danish average), on a monthly basis that is 2.325KWh less. On a yearly basis 27.9KWh less.
