Maybe I am just dumb and I use the wrong questions, but when I
searched I got a lot of hits that explained I needed tot switch
because the space needed would be halved (what is not true, I did see
'only' a 2/3) and a few explained that you could not use h265
everywhere, so you should evaluate if it was a good idea to switch.
In none of the hits I saw anything about a performance hit. Especially
not a hit up to a factor three.

My question was not about that there was a performance hit, but about
that it was so high.
