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.
