Real World Performance – Media Encoding

Our first media encoding test uses the latest CS6 software from Adobe. This software accesses all of the cores/threads available on our processors and is therefore an ideal application for media enthusiasts. To test performance we run a 2560×1600 file (custom recording) through the encoder set to 1080p 24 HQ using the H.264 Blu-Ray codec within the application.



Results


Our music conversion test takes a 2CD lossless album and converts it using dBpoweramp into 128Kbps Mp3 format. dBpoweramp is a multi-threaded application which allows us to convert a track on each core/thread, at any one time.



Results


In our media encoding tests the cache solution doesn’t have any significant impact on the performance of the Blade. Looking back to the likes of our MSI GT70 review the same tests completed within a few seconds of each other which shows that the high end CPU/memory used (near identical in both systems) is more important to this performance.
