I guess it depends on the software you run. I run XBMC and the YouTube plugin with HD video as well as any other 1080p content plays just fine. My setup:
OS: Win7 with Intel Nov'14 drivers package
XBMC/KODI video settings:
- Decoding - DXVA2
- Deinterlacing - DXVA Best
- Scaling - DXVA
- Rendering - DXVA-HD
hardware SSD and 8GB high perf (9-9-9-20 @ 1600) DDR3 running at 8-8-8-18 @ 1333 via the N2030 CPU
I have so far only used VLC,XBMC and youtube (also tried it in explorer as I heard chrome had issues, but same result)
Also the N2030 CPU is a bit faster I believe.... so you can't compare the unit anyway
Please allow us more time to check on this.
I'm very annoyed to be honest as I was informed by Intel staff via the live chat box all the issues regarding these types of problems had been fixed. However in your own forums for the last six months people are still reporting
the same issues.....and your staff have stopped replying
What I really don't understand is why Intel canceled the N2820 NUC within two months of it coming out due
to all the problems it was having and replaced with the N2830! so you are fully aware of this but yet they are
still for sale? I brought mine a few days ago at retail.
IF YOU KNOW IT'S A FAULTY DEVICE OR HAS SERIOUS ERRORS YOU CAN'T FIX WHY IS IT STILL BEING SOLD!!!!!!!!!
I'm quite a fair person. I understand about software issues and other stuff, but you've had more than enough time
to sort this now...almost a year. going to have to return the unit now so I'm going to be asking intel for a refund as I don't see this being fixed and I'm not waiting weeks or months for you to do so... this was supposed to be a Christmas present!.I've spent over 200 pounds on a device that is useless and it's wasted countless hours the last two days trying to sort the issue out
The people would like some answers!!!!!! I'm not alone here!
I don't think I'm ever buying anything Intel again, I could not be anymore unhappy :-(.
seems like internet explorer have done the job youtube videos are running smooth in explorer html player cpu use 10-20 % while chrome uses 80 -100 % i am running windows 8.1 64 bit all updates installed
Hi all, after being more and more frustrated by this contraption, I am here to say I am having exactly the same issue with my 2 month old NUC 2820
Video stuttering on YouTube, Netflix and Amazon Prime, when run on both Chrome and Firefox.
No other programs opened.
Ethernet cable delivering 88Mbps.
Gaming PC on same network delivers smooth HD through Netflix etc.
CPU regularly hitting 100%
I have tried:
Updated BIOS. (using Windows Express Download)
Pleading with it/ pretending the stuttering is not there
Crucial CT51264BF160B 4GB DDR3 1600 MT/s (PC3-12800) CL11 SODIMM 204pin 1.35V/1.5V
Kingston 120GB SSDNow V300 2.5inch SSD
The only thing I have yet to try is LeszekMs suggestion, however I am not sure how to dedicate 512mb of RAM to video.Set up has 4Gb of CL11 Ram @1600mhz. This is being upgraded to a Hyper X 8 gb CL9 stick.
Would really appreciate any advice or guidance
