Youtube @60 fps low performance

CPU - 13980HX (the most powerful CPU atm)
HT is off.
E-cores disabled.
FHD display
HWP: performance (~5.2ghz)

4 vcpu vm
cpu load: ~130%
Youtube vp09, FHD@60
30% dropped frames at full screen.

Why? Where is the bottleneck? Is it qubes engine and nothing you can do with it? Or my settings?

Did you disable the YouTube cinematic lighting option?


Its called “ambient mode”. I disabled it and 0% dropped frames. Thank you!


Ive literally been going through post for days, Youtube performance on my T480S was UNUSEABLE, tried a million things recommended in other threads…not a single one mentioned “ambient mode”… literally this improved the experience far more than anything else I tried… I can actually use Youtube now lol.
