Real World Performance – Media Encoding



Our first media encoding test uses the latest CS5.5 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 1920×1080 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 2 CD 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 we see the advantage of having four threads on the i5 CPU, especially in the music encoding test where we see the system encoding four tracks at a time, completing the full two discs in 2m 33s.
