    Phoronix: Intel Celeron N3050 Braswell Linux Performance

    This week has been fun testing out the Braswell-powered NUC5CPYH. This NUC features the Celeron N3050 SoC and in this article are some of the first benchmarks of this new Intel design when testing under Linux.

    vainfo would be much more interesting, compared to Broadwell it should feature HEVC decode support. Then check this using mpv, kodi.

      Hm, interesting. I need to choose a new laptop for my parents now, and one of the two options is using this processor (Acer). The other one is a Pentium 3805U (Dell). Both come with Linux. Right now I'm leaning towards the Dell, since the performance here isn't that great.

        Don't know the state of Kodi, but mpv will only get hardware hevc decoding on Intel when someone writes a hevc_vaapi hwaccel for ffmpeg. mpv doesn't have its own hardware decoders, it just wraps the ffmpeg hwaccels. For now ffmpeg only features hevc_dxva2 (for Windows) and hevc_vdpau.

          How does Intel manage to put a Atom-renamed-into-Celeron CPU in a notebook that's slower than the old generation mobile Atom, yet still be able to charge 5x more for it?

            Because it has hardware HEVC decode support ;-)

              Marketing is a miracle . Let say people will care about HEVC decode in future, decode feature which in whole laptop price probably worth about $1 - dunno how much really, so that might easely be less

              Yeah, people usually buy whole new thing to get one small thing
