Media Encoding Tests

Handbrake


Known mainly for its DVD re-encoding prowess, our test uses the Handbrake command line interface on a full DVD rip to gauge CPU performance.

The Kabini system is able to cross the 50 FPS mark in our Handbrake testing, a strong result for the platform we are looking at.  Considering that this system is running at about a quarter of the power of the Core i3-2105 desktop part running at half the speed shows impressive efficiency.

 

x264 HD Benchmark


The popular x264 benchmark available from graysky does a two-pass H.264 encode on 1080p video.  The first pass appears to be more clock-sensitive while the second pass is more heavily threaded.

(Screenshot shows 720p testing from v4.0, we are using 1080p on v5.0)

Sorry, no comparison results here for you, but we ARE using the new v5.0 of this test that uses 1080p videos rather than 720p.  You can use our results here to compare your own testing or other benchmarks across the web.
