Real World CPU Performance – Media Encoding


Video 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


Music Encoding
Our music conversion test takes an 18 track 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


On the last page we saw memory, SATA, USB and PCIe performance figures and now we move on to CPU performance. In that area we get industry leading figures from ASRock as their board ties with the best Z68 model we had tested previously.
