Schenker XMG P722 Gaming Laptop Review

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 2560x1600 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 there is a clear gap in performance between the two systems with a lot of this down to the SSD used in the P722 which allows our CPU to stretch its legs without a read/write bottleneck. The same can be said of the music test where the 8 threads on our CPU are fully utilized, converting two full CDs in just 50 seconds.
