    Not to nitpick, but this is slightly incorrect.

    Codec stands for COmpressor/DECompressor and is a remnant from the days when codecs existed that performed both functions.

    H.265/HEVC is the video standard, and technically defines how a video will be decoded, an encoder is free to arrive at the compression video anyway it wants, which is why there is variance with the quality of the video encoded by various encoders. This is why there is such a thing as HRD, hypothetical reference decoder and no such thing as HRE, hypothetical reference encoder.

    How does it compare to a Radeon VII?

    Sorry, my bad. This is what happens when one goes straight for the graphs and skips all the garnish!

    Open-Source Graphics For Under $200 ?

    I just purchased a brand new ASUS Dual RX6600 that satisfies all my needs for £174 including the punishing UK sales tax of 20%. This equates to $169.78 less UK sales tax, with US sales tax averaging around a much more consumer friendly 7% (your state mileage may vary) this works out at $181.66. Too much wrong with the Intel card, better luck with ARC MK2 Intel.

    I've definitely been missing the sub-$200 GPU market. The 4G VRAM that Nvidia and AMD offer isn't cutting it. I'm just not interested in paying hundreds of dollars for a GPU that I use to pay ~150 for just a few years ago. I guess everyone has amnesia but you could buy a really good ~150 GPU just a few years ago that would run most of the new games. Of course now, I'm more interested in Stable Diffusion and these 4GB VRAM offerings are pathetic. Unfortunately, Intel is pretty much a no-go for SD.
    why not? I have a couple friends who have had a really good time using intel with SD

    At least Michael won't even have to consider spending money to test an 'RX 6750 GRE 10GB' or an 'RX 6750 GRE 12GB', because if Videocardz has the specs right, those two cards are nothing but an RX 6700 and an RX 6700XT with different labels slapped on them. Marketing bullshit aside, customers can decide whether or not they are better value than an A580, but they are not in any way RX 6750s.

    Continued bad news for Intel that AMD and Nvidia have so much last gen stock that they can keep pretending to introduce new models even three years after launch. RTX 3040... excuse me, RTX 3050 6GB ho...

    No, I didn't miss that part, but I assume this will be some sort of hybrid laptop so the Arc GPU can remain off while you're not gaming.
