Why is rendering video still a straining task for modern laptops?
I remember watching videos on a laptop I had back in 2000. The processor was more than ten times weaker than the processor I have on my Macbook Air, it had about 15 times less memory, and the hard disk was constantly 95% full due to the ridiculously limited space. However, running videos continues to be a straining task, despite all this progress. Often I have to increase the volume to cover the noise of the fan that runs like crazy to keep up with the heating of the processor. How does this make sense?
I am sorry but I don't have enough knowledge to answer this question. Perhaps you could ask this question in a platform like Quora.
