    Isn't this exact mix of parallel and serial tasks the purpose for HSA? Would it be possible to write a software decoder with good enough performance and a negligible amount of extra power usage...

    That's strange, as the all open part already exists today (with the radeon kernel driver), the news from that picture was the hybrid driver. So if you don't care about using the proprietary...

    If you want to compare pure codec quality (like lets say what codec should your next smart phone use to encode your home videos) then you need RAW video files, there is no other way.

    Indeed, I only opened the original and it looks horible. Having so many encoding artifacts in the sorce can not possible lead to a good output. Encoding tests should only be made when using an...

    As Gentoo just found out, that is just plain wrong. They should try again for 10.5.3 https://bugs.gentoo.org/show_bug.cgi?id=545058

    It's hard to say if MacBooks are overpriced since competition for them is completely inexistent. Did Apple patent the laptop with less than 15" display, SSD and backlit keyboard? Oh, and also below 2...

    Did anybody having problems with ALSA just delete the /etc/asound.conf provided by their distro? By default (without any config file) ALSA enables dmix and it just works.

    You keep complaining about how slow the AMD CPUs are, lets try to see just how slow they are. According to PassMark the A10-7850K is slightly faster for single-threaded tasks than an i7 975 (yes, the...

    At least for the FM2+ socket, multiple connectors are not that rare. You can even get boards with 4 of them (like the ASRock FM2A88X Extreme6+), but since every one is a different type it's clear...

    AMD does have such a thing, they call it the R series. Not sure where you could get one or how much it would cost, but I surely won't be sponsoring you :)

    Given you constraints, you would get the best results by replacing the entire computer. Second best, yes, that appears to be the only choice.

    Actually Wikipedia is a reliable source, it also states 25W for the GT730, not sure where I got the 38W from originally, but beware such things do exist. The values on Wikipedia and the nvidia site...

    Ok, forgot about the Opterons.


    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/GeForce_700_series and http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/AMD_Radeon_Rx_200_series. Didn't find official TDP for either manufacturer.

    Those are all 95W+, I don't think a TDP of 30W for the R7 240 compared to the 19W of GT 720 will make much of a difference. BTW, the GT 730 is 38W.


    The GDDR5 variant, uses a 64bit bus and...

    That is quite understandable. Any CPU this days has a built in GPU and the above cards would be a regression compared to an AMD A10 APU and only a minor improvement over the Intel GPUs and other APUs.

    Are you ripping a 3D Bluray? That vertical spliting sounds like a SBS (Side By Side) 3D video.

    Non-compositing desktops are a thing of the past. And an i915 (or i945, whatever came with the first generation Atoms) can not handle kwin with compositing enabled. The Ivy Bridge I'm currently using...

    Big corporations and governments can also access MS Window's source code, but that doesn't mean anybody can. Unreal could have done the same, the small guys get a blob while the big guys get the...

    One thing to consider is that the AMD sensors are known to be highly inaccurate at low temperature even in BIOS or Windows. Just ran sensors again and this is the result:
