Music Encoding

Our music conversion test takes a 15 track lossless album and converts it using CD-DA convertor into 128Kbps Mp3 format.

By today’s standards audio encoding is a fairly basic task which is incredibly fast on most recent CPUs. Having said that there can still be time saving benefits when converting lossless files into a more portable size for use on MP3 players. This type of conversion is reasonably common and so it is useful to know how our new processors will handle the task. In the case of the i7-920 it is able to encode a full albums worth of content in less than four minutes though this is a little slower than the X9770, a win for the brute force of the 3.2GHz clock over the finesse of the lower end i7’s new architecture. This proves not to be an issue with the 965EE as its increased specifications and clockspeed allow it to finish 10 seconds ahead of the X9770.
