RAM issues discussed here: NUC5i3RYH RAM issue - dual module configuration fails to boot
From Video side, I can say my NUC5i3RYH running OpenELEC play 1080p H.264 content without any problem.
In regards of the CPU usage and video issue, did you try updating the BIOS?
Does the issue occur when on full screen mode?
My system came with RYBDWi35.86A version of the bios, which is the latest one anyway. I forced a bios updated and reinstalled the same version again, and it seemed to mak no difference.
The video issue happens regardless of whether it is full screen or not. However, it is gets noticeably worse when I go in full screen mode.
The BIOS version is actually listed after 86A.
So, you are using the Intel® HD Graphics driver version 4080?
Can you determine what specific process is using most of the CPU capacity?
Im also absolutely not pleased with the Performance. But i have also the Problem that the graphic produces These snowy artefacts.
I installed 2 times Windows 7 from scratch, bios update dont´need to be because its the latest but did anyway, tried installing chipset Driver than graphics and vice versa, tried on three differnt Screens, but nothing. Besides if you can make a snapshot of it i think ist definetely not the Screen (TV and Monitor btw). Oh and yes, i tried also 3 different types of HDMI Cable.
I also have openelec, but there, These snowy artefacts become more lines flying around than dots, its desastrous.When i start a Video the lines go and the dots come back jumping massive all over the place
Crucial CT128M550SSD4 interne SSD 128 GB
Crucial CT8G3S160BMCEU (2 pieces 16 GB Ram)
The BIOS version i'm using is 86A.0137 which I believe is the latest.
As for CPU usage, whatever process is trying to play the video consumes almost all the CPU bandwidth. So, if i'm trying to stream through Chrome, it will be Chrome that will take all the bandwidth. Same results with IE and firefox. Playing media from local storage using MPC (Media player classic) also causes the same same issue.
Shelique If you are running WIN7 you should not have driver issues like reported for Linux. I cannot say anything about OpenELEC with HD6000. I can only confirm that my NUC5i3RYH, plays 1080p@24 flawlessly (OpenELEC + Plex, Kernel 3.18.1 , CPU temp near 42°C, RAM used 950MB (I have 4GB), CPU max load 15% (Video HW acceleration is ON).
Wolf666 i agree. I just thought that it was a general problem with the graphic card in general or bios. i dont know what would cause this. I ordered a miniport cable to test if things will change. I will report later on today how it went. What disturbes me is that you can see the dots even on the screenshot which means it comes right from the graphic card, right? And since i installed win 7 twice and all updates (bios, graphic card, aso.) it seems that it may be graphic card failure.
I will later on post also some video and pics.
joe_intel no they don't.
I opened a new thread with detailed description and also put 2 videos.
joe_intel looks like the vidoe problem only happens under windows7. I have tried the exact same hardware with Debian and video plays just fine and CPU usage does not spike. I'm guessing this is a driver issue with Windows7. I am running the latest chipset and graphics driver. I am about to do a clean install of Windows8 tonight and see what happens. Will report back.
Update: finally did a clean install of windows 8. And the problem unfortunately is still there.
Here is one example of trying to play a 1080p video from YouTube through Chrome. The video looks okay, but the CPU usage is way too high.
Things get much much worse when trying 4k content. Check the dropped frame number..and of course the CPU is maxed out at 100%. The video is unwatchable.
Not sure what to make of this anymore...
I do not see this issue happening with my system, it is the NUC5i3RYK with Windows* 8.1, latest BIOS and graphics driver.
Did you notice if the fan speed and temperature have increased? It could be a hardware issue after all as it happened to Shelique, see the thread he linked above.
