Win HTPC with alder lake n100
Just wondered if anyone had tried kodi on the n100 hardware. The reviews of the box I've found say it's performance is a step up from the n6005 and it also supports vc1 hardware decoding.
A box on the beelink site can be had for just over £200.
Thank in advance for any feedback.
That box was introduced only 3 weeks ago, I doubt if it's already plenty available in shops.

Seeing reviews, this is also a (minor?) factor:
"As mentioned, this particular processor has limited RAM support to one channel DDR4. This is a limiting factor for integrated graphics which can easily result in double digit performance loss."

So you 'might' even be better off with a J5040 box (UHD605 gpu) with dual-ram support.
Thanks yes totally agree single channel memory is the big drawback with a bench mark I've just read saying gpu 15% deficit compared to n6005 with dual but performed better than n5105 with dual.
Just seems a little bit more future proof with vc1,WiFi 6, and does support DDR 5 memory which could help close the GPU deficit but will probably wait until a few more reviews are out.
shortcut for future viewers - alder lake n100 specs

it has a generic designation as Intel UHD Graphics with limited specs on that page

second shortcut for future viewers - alder lake gpu specs (includes list of codec based hardware capabilities)

considering VC1 is practically deprecated as newer gpus are not supporting it and nobody is using it anymore makes me think of it as an added feature of a gpu but independent of any future proofing

2018 amlogic can do VC1 decoding

(my offering of specs links is because in order for me to figure out what was being talked about i had to look them up for myself)
I've got an AL N95 box (a bit of a step down from the 100) and it is blazing with the libreelec nightlies... I also think you mean it supports AV1 decode in HW (which I've confirmed it does). I very much recommend it.
AV1 would certainly be useful towards future proofing
Thanks for the info sounds promising and yes I meant v1 hw decode. Are the libreelec builds the nexus 11 nightlies ?
Yes, libreelec 11 nightlies/betas. The Alder Lake graphics need the newer Linux Kernels (6.1 IIRC in these LE versions).
