My NUC7PJYH with Ubuntu 18.04 has a glmark2 benchmark value of only 750.
Is there anything I can do to make it better? Newer drivers? Newer openGl vresion?
So let me get this right... You purchased a low-end NUC with a Pentium processor and now you are worried about its graphics engine's performance numbers? This is like worrying about closing the gate after all of the horses have left the corral. If you wanted a solution with better graphics performance numbers, you should have purchased one with a Core i3 (like NUC7i3BNH or NUC7i3DNH) or Core i5 (like NUC7i5BNH or NUC7i5DNH) processor. Even then, you really aren't going to see scores anything like what you could see with NVIDIA or AMD graphics engines.
The only thing that I can think of that might make a difference (but I am not sure how much) would be adding additional memory and reserving more of it for the graphics engine.
Scott, so your advice is: "always buy a Porsche, never try to make a cheap car faster"?
Or: "never paint an old house, always buy a new one".
Actually, for the most part, I am exactly the opposite - but I do have to admit that I have some disdain for the folks pimping out their Ford Fiestas.
What I am saying is that most folks who purchase systems with "just enough" performance are usually not going to worry about running - or being upset by the low scores from - particular benchmark tests. While I do applaud your interest in getting the most out of your system, doing so in terms of one particular benchmark result seems strange to me.
P.S. (I can't help myself) And I thought everyone was purchasing infused siding so that painting was never again an issue.
I bought an NUC7PJYH as an HTPC for movies and TV. But when I switch the system to 4k, the hardware is too slow.
Whereas the nvidia shield tv has no problems with 4k movies.
Thank you for your response,
Allow me to share with you that, I was looking into the information of the technical product specifications of the Intel® NUC and the video decode hardware acceleration supporting H.265/HEVC @ Level 5.1 8b/10b, H.264 @ Level 5.2, MPEG2, MVC, VC-1, WMV9, JPEG, VP8 and VP9 format, this is to the playing 4K videos for reference see the following link on page 20.
I also recommend that for driver update in the operating system that you are running on the unit you can refer to the following link:
Hope this helps.
