    You have mountains of hardware and instead of doing a comparison in a separate test machine you rip out the server, change the hardware and only then do you do a comparison? Linus you're a retard.

    How does Intel Quick Sync factor into this? Using an Intel CPU with a built-in GPU (e.g. the 9900K) would enable Quick Sync and make H.264 rendering much faster. It seems Quick Sync is not used for CineForm. Are there other benefits from CineForm worth the increased rendering time? (Full disclosure: I've spec'd out an Intel-based video editing machine, but haven't purchased any major parts yet; with Ryzen 9, I'm reconsidering. My current editing rig is too old to support Quick Sync and I'm using a ProRes workflow anyway).

    Every time I watch a video, I am shocked by the like/dislike ratio. And wait, It's not what you think. The first time I look at the likes and dislikes, I see that the dislikes are floats(ex. 1.1K) and likes are too big and are turned to integers(32K). As a result, I see that 1.1 is longer than 32 and think that there are less likes than dislikes. Hope someone understands my explanation.

    apollo.backplane.com/DFlyMisc/threadripper.txt Threadripper 2 Tests Matthew Dillon DragonFlyBSD 2-Sep-2018 14-Oct-2018 ...apollo.backplane.com/DFlyMisc/synth_times.txt A full bulk build with a recent DPorts (with flabors) takes around 21 hours on the xeon and 18 on the opteron systems. The 2990WX runs the build in 12 hours which is 75% faster than the 2 socket Xeon and 50% faster than the quad socket Opteron. Not only that, but since I only had 64G of ram in the TR2 (the Xeon and Opteron systems have 128G), I had to balance the workload against paging load with the result being significantly more cpu idle time on the TR2 during the test than either of the other systems. This means the TR2 will be even faster on this test once I get 128G of ram into it. Statistics graph for for 2990WX synth run: apollo.backplane.com/DFlyMisc/synth_tr2_64g.jpg ... ...My conclusion is that at least for these kinds of loads, its a waste of watts to run the cpu at high power levels. Even more importantly (and I hope this isn't lost on people), look at the efficiency at lower power levels! For many workloads we can get nearly the same performance for significantly less power. Running the TR2 at 260W (at the wall) is 70W lower than stock and it gets nearly the same performance on this test. ...

    But AMP works fine, also a 12 core 3900x would probably be better suited for the task. Please, just stop saying AMD is pretty much the best for workstation workloads and then do this stuff. And when that 3950x hits the market, that will be an even better option.
