This is a long standing bug or more anomaly of TVAI with Apple Silicon. For SD material you should set RAM to 10% and the hardware will be used much better and the encode going faster.

This is a SD → FHD upscale here on my M2 Ultra with Iris and RAM set to 85%:

Bad hardware utilization and slow encode (5fps).

The exact same task just with RAM set to 10%:

Resources much better used and about double the speed.

What was in this post that it needed to be immediately hidden??

Same ip address did respond.

Did he create two accounts?

Ip address from opener and the last reply to you was the same.

Very likely

If you look at his details it is the same person, email address and same IP address for both user names.
