you use intel systems... intel means outdatet...
try a IBM Power7! or a Opteron6000 48 core system!
Intel can't compete against these 2 CPUs!
"But using cpu decode on hd video is not usefull"
because you use outdatet non multicore software ?
"The combined power consumption will be always higher than using the right chip for that."
you are just wrong phoronix test this! CPU do need less power consuming!
"You might "feel" better not using the bad binary stack"
its not just a feeling nvidia is watching you... (now i know why you write good things abaut nvidia because they hack your system via the clousedsource nvidia driver and highjack your phoronix password)
"Ok the latest highend nv fermi have too high idle consumption,"
Fermi=80idle with good idle energy saver
my hd4350=5watt and my 4670=16watt
i call you nvidia fanboy a tree murderer!
