Makes sense, though until seeing your and Ted's notes I was taking for granted the false notion "if it can display 4k it can no doubt encode 4k"
Never take anything for granted.

The overall goal of these tests is to see if / when it makes financial sense to use RPIs as a render farm high res video.
So far the answer points toward 'not likely'.

Just tested various overclocking settings, but even then I didn't get boost.

Not quite ready to throw in the towel, but so far no progress.
