Adobe Media Encoder CS4

Our Media Encoding test uses the latest CS4 software from Adobe. This software accesses all four cores and eight threads available on the i7 range and is therefore an ideal application for media enthusiasts. To test performance we run a 1.67 GB 1920×1080 file (custom recording) through the encoder set to 1080p 24 HQ using the H.264 Blu-Ray codec within the application. The output file measures 230mb.

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

When encoding video or audio content we see the largest difference in performance between the two sets of memory with the Patriot sticks falling nine seconds behind the Super Talent modules in video transcoding tasks. When we move to audio conversion the Project X memory is once again ahead of the Vipers and through complete coincidence the difference is nine seconds again.
