Yes that was for this sample, but if you use another sample:little sumary:
- idle ~12W
- GL/XV ~18W (6W more than idle)
- VDPAU ~15W (3W more than idle)
So it looks like UVD uses about half the power compared to the CPU for decoding the Phoronix sample on the E-450 APU.
Which is more CPU resource hungry, VDPAU will stay on his 3W, so for that one playing with Xv/GL i guess will consume 12W... end result would be 4 times more power consumpation .
edit: actually you can't play that 60 fps sample with Xv/GL on E-450, could you? But with vdpau you can ?
