    My 6 cores Coffee Lake encodes 1080p 10bit HEVC at 5-20 FPS.
    well, the fast answer is... it's not for some people. SVT-AV1 encodes on cpu faster than HEVC. it's worth trying, AOMENC is a much more efficient coder, but it's not as zoomy. the issue right now is you need to do some work yourself since ffmpeg preset's aren't exactly great.

    so while IMO the speed is there. ffmpeg isn't yet -_-

    According to the recent investor presentation, Arctic Sound-M (a DC targeted device) will be the "Industries first GPU with AV1 encoding". Since that will not ship until after the desktop parts, that suggests that AV1 encode will not be included in the desktop part. AV1 encode hardware may require additional die space only available on the DC targeted GPUs.
    Its likely using the same die as consumer parts. Not even Nvidia/AMD can afford to make unique dies for smaller server GPUs, and Intel has used consumer dies for similar products in the past.


    "Industries" could refer to the server GPU business, not the gaming card industry... but I admit that's a stretch, and arbitrarily fusing off AV1 encode would be such an Intel move.

    Nice, probably means that ARC will have AV1 encode support.

    EDIT: nvm, probably just the datacenter edition of the GPU. That's unfortunate.

    We don't know either way, right?

    I think Intel needs to enable every silicon feature they can if they want to gain market share from amd/nvidia.

    highly doubt we will see av1 encode in consumer gpus for a while, decode however I can see new intel gpus having it

    They haven't yet announced the encode/decode capabilities of client DG2.

    Nice, I'd be in the market for an accelerator card that can just perform some transcoding, if it isn't too expensive (where can I find prices?) My use-case is using it with jellyfin: for now I use a W2100 that barely has the capacity to encode a single 30FPS real-time h.264 video. Bonus points if it can still drive displays and has basic 3D support, but that's not strictly necessary.
