Are you sure the IGP is disabled ? in some intel cpus , the video decode block is separate from the main graphics , also even if vp9 is isn't directly supported, if vp8 is , then it may be partially hardware accelerated..

The i5-3470 IGP was completely disabled. It wasn't even showing up in Device Manager.
The i7-4930K is an LGA2011 CPU and doesn't even have an IGP. In GPU-Z, the GTX 970's video decoder was showing 0% utilization while playing VP9.

Update: I just finished building a Ryzen 7 machine for a friend and added results to the chart. AMD's latest is not bad at all, easily beating my 4.6GHz i7-4930K in software decode performance. But what I found most impressive was just how much faster it was than the old 4GHz Phenom X6. Yowza!

The X6 1090T was released 8 years and two whole generations ago. CPU innovation has slowed over the past few years, but advances are still being made. :wink:

And to think I still have an X6 1060T sitting in a server chugging along :O! Just got news a few days ago that we are seeking out a server replacement however.

My home server is still a 1090T. In an AM2+ motherboard (DDR2 RAM), no less. For my use case it is actually overkill; I probably should have something more power-efficient in there, but the 1090T is what I had on hand when I built that server. At least all the cores throttle down to 800MHz under light load, so the idle power isn't that bad.

Maybe I did have the 1090t, now I'm curious. It's in an AM3 platform with DDR3 ECC though. When they retire it, I'll probably use it. They want to go with something more like a Dell this time even though they got an amazing value out of this server, just dead rock solid for 8 years. It is in my favorite case in the world to build in, the Corsair Carbide 600t. Heck, I might even move my main rig into that case and re-purpose the 400r.

That was one of the cool things about that generation. The dual-mode memory controller allowed you to re-use your old AM2+ mobo and DDR2 RAM (BIOS support permitting), or go AM3/DDR3 if you were willing to spring for an entire new platform.

Hmm... I wonder if swapping out the motherboard in that system would reduce the power consumption by a meaningful amount. I have a spare AM3 mobo and some DDR3...

I'm still using a Core Duo T2700 in my server. Not the Core 2 Duo; rather, the old 32-bit "stopgap" Intel was putting in laptops to compete with Turion X2 before Core 2 was ready. It's not the fastest thing in the world, but perfectly adequate for what it needs to do.

It's amazing what 32 threads will do.
Flashback: 4-10% CPU usage is roughly what you'd see playing an MP3 file on a 300MHz K6. :D

Yeah for my own really small file server and sorta test environment, I've got a Q6600 still :lol: . Running on an Intel brand board none-the-less.

Curious if this is spreading the load a little or just stressing 1 or 2 threads.
