Default Re: These flash ads must go

I hate flash ads period. They're more annoying then popups ever were. At least many of em popups didn't have all that fricken flash animation and what not...

I just use ad block plugin in Mozilla. Forget browsing many a site without it anymore...

Of course with all this CPU usage given flash ads, there is another side to consider. Anyone on the site who folds for team nVnews If the thing is set to fold all the time (even when the comp is in use), the more CPU time taken to process these flash ads, is the less CPU time that's given to folding@home, to help rack up the credits

Default Re: New Inno3D ad causes excessive CPU utilization

I notified Inno3D about the excessive CPU usage. In the meantime, I changed the flash quality to medium, which uses about 50% less of the CPU.

Default Re: New Inno3D ad causes excessive CPU utilization

I noticed this yesterday, if i'm watching a video (I tried some h.264 and some divx files) and you open IE and come here to nvnews.net the combination of the flash ad which uses about 20% cpu on its own and WMP9 which uses about 15-25% cpu on its own would equal 35-45% cpu usage, but it goes to 60-80% cpu usage and the WMP9 video studders.

I had to go to adobe's page and download a flash remover, no more ads, 0% cpu usage on web pages.

To me its rediculous how much cpu power a couple small ads use.

I wonder if the blame lies with Macromedia because Flash sucks, or the companies creating the ads who can't properly optimize them.

Flash rules! I blame companies that can't optimize.

The banner has been replaced. The excessive CPU usage was the result of a flash (action script) error.
