Media Playback (Blu-Ray/MKV)

Blu-Ray: Waterworld, Chapter 2. Waterworld is encoded in High Definition 1080p format using MPEG4 AVC compression (rather than Mpeg 2 which is used on older Blu-Ray’s) and comes on a dual layer(50GB) disc. The aspect ratio of 1.85:1 is used with letterbox bars at the top and bottom of the 16:9 image. This portion of the movie has an average video bitrate of around 33Mbps and regularly peaks above this making it one of the most demanding Blu-Rays on the market. For comparison, a movie such as Casino Royale has a bitrate of 24Mbps.

MKV: Our test file was a 1080p .mkv file which was taken from a 1080p source and converted into this format.

Once again we have a very close set of performance results with Blu-Ray playback being identical on the two builds. MKV playback showed a slight variation in performance with the 790FXTA offering slightly more desirable CPU use figures.
