Should hardware acceleration be default if available? I rendered a video with an Intel I5-11600k (using iGPU on PC) without hardware acceleration and the CPU temperatures elevated to 92°C, where I promptly canceled the render. It could have gone higher, I didnt want to risk it.
I turn on H.A. and it renders a little faster while the temps don’t raise above 70°C.
I have read where you can lower priority in task manager. Also, in Power Options you can limit CPU power percentages. Haven’t tested too much but just lowering to %90 seemed to shave +10°C. But of course H.A… weird.
