    Can either encoder reliably handle grain yet?

      What about video decode?

        The current generation so 3000 for NVidia and 6000 for AMD have decode already. I expect that is just 4:2:0 as well but maybe Brigman can enlighten us as to what AMD is doing in RDNA2 as all I have ever seen in the marketing material is "AV1 Decode". I am hoping Van Gough is going to be my next HTPC as it is supposed to be a low power chip aimed at chrome pads but with AV1 decode up to 4K. If some one throws that into a mini PC form factor I'm in.

        BTW I tried launching FastFlix on FC-34 and it doesn't work.

          I consider AV1 video codification a sort of revolution because it allows modern hardware to replace h265 codec in a better and more convenient shape.

            Only a few years ago VP9 and HEVC were equally slow and they were included. There might be a point though in the sense that VP9 and HEVC are more than good enough for 99.9999% of home users' current use cases (the target audience of HandBrake) so they don't really need to support AV1 just yet.

              I wouldn't say HandBrake is deprecated., it's still a better GUI than FastFlix and FF does not support vaapi-h265 encoding, it supports Nvenc, not the same thing.

                Fastflix is actually pretty good. Wishlist: a few more filter options, tiles>0 with pass 1 for libaom-av1 (more cores = much faster pass 1 and it doesn't impact quality), and MAIN10/Professional profile. And I guess pre-populating the colourspace inputs from the ffprobe data would be nice too. And it would be nice if you could specify a wildcard for the input so it would glob files to the queue. :-)
