ASRock Core 100HT-BD HTPC Review

Media Encoding

Our Media Encoding test uses the latest CS5 software from Adobe. Adobe Media Encoder accesses all of the threads on our CPU and therefore shows the best CPU encoding performance. To test performance we run a 1920×1080 file (custom recording) through the encoder set to the highest quality Blu-Ray profiles.

Benchmark Results

Our music conversion test takes a 30 track lossless album and converts it using CD-DA convertor and dBpoweramp into 128Kbps Mp3 format.

Benchmark Results

One of the real benefits of the Core 100HT-BD over other compact systems is its use of a Core i3 CPU, added to this is ASRock’s decision to use a model which uses two cores with Hyper-Threading. For media encoding this means that we can process four threads at once, ensuring maximum performance and in the case of music encoding, our software can assign a track to each thread. This means four songs are processed at once and the result, a 30 track lossless 80minute album converted to MP3 in just under a minute and a half.
