Video Transcoding

Video transcoding is well suited for systems that have more CPU cores. Encoding/transcoding to x.264 format is one of the most intensive tasks a processor can perform. In this test we encode a h.264 DTS 1080P trailer of 150 MB to Matroska x.264 with 5.1 channels AC3. We use the Handbrake software suite heavily threaded, the more processor cores it sees, the faster it can and will transcode. This software is perfect for benchmarking the CPU and memory.


Compute wise this title also allows you to test features like AVX and OpenCL. We are testing brute processor performance right now though. The displayed number is the number of frames rendered per second averaged out over the encoding process. The higher the number, the faster the performance is. It's exactly in applications like these where processors with more cores really shine as they are all utilized to the maximum.

Ryzen 5 and 7 benefit from the higher core clock frequencies and number of cores. Intel's counterparts however benefit from quad-channel memory as encoding and transcoding is a very memory situated process.


The tool that overclockers like so much to determine performance and stability. In this test we max out the number of threads corresponding towards the processor and calculate 1024M of prime. This software is a computer program that calculates a set number of square roots using Newton's method for estimating functions verifying the results by squaring them then comparing them with the original numbers.
