GPU Computing - Video Encoding

In the past we have taken a look at the performance gains which can be achieved when converting small video files using Badaboom but recently Elemental added support for additional codec’s to the application. This makes the software much more flexible. Shown below is the result of converting a 1920x1080 file which was recorded in FRAPS to the highest quality iPod setting within Badaboom.

For this clip we can see that passing encoding work to the GPU has huge benefits with a reduction in time of 51 seconds on the Gigabyte 275. When we consider that the program used to encode the comparison results actually uses all 8 threads of the Core-i7 CPU it makes this GeForce result even more impressive.
