AMD Roundup August 09

12. DriverHeaven Photoshop V3 Benchmark (64bit)14. Music Encoding


Adobe Media Encoder

Our Media Encoding test uses the latest CS4 software from Adobe. This software accesses all four cores available on the Phenom 2 range and is therefore an ideal application for media enthusiasts. To test performance we run a 1920×1080 file (custom recording) through the encoder set to 1080p 24 HQ using the H.264 Blu-Ray codec within the application.


When we convert our high res video clip to Blu-Ray format we see that the Phenom 2 X4 965 Black Edition completes the task 17seconds ahead of the 955BE. More impressive is the gap over the fastest CPU from the original Phenom family, the 9950 is over a minute slower than the 965.
