Media Encoding – MP3 & DiVX

Abit KV8 Pro Socket 754 Motherboard - Motherboards 55

In converting 12 minutes of DVD video to DiVX (640×352, AC3 5.1ch), we see the Abit KV8 Pro show a significant lead over all other boards. Unlike all previous tests that show both Athlon 64 systems performing about the same, the KV8’s nearly lead in encoding DiVX files is quite significant. Extrapolating to a full 2hour movie, the Abit KV8 Pro will do the job a full 8.5 minutes faster. In MP3 encoding, all boards perform similarly with a slight lead given to the nForce 2 system.
