Benchmark Results: Audio And Video Encoding

System Builder Marathon, June 2010: System Value Compared

Apple iTunes encoder remains a thorn in the side of anyone hoping to put advanced CPU features to good use. It gains nothing from threading, and instead only benefits from clock-altering capabilities like Turbo Boost.

At the very least, it's an interesting measure of what each processor can accomplish on a clock-for-clock basis.

HandBrake appears to prefer Intel’s latest CPU optimizations before clock speed.

Repeat performances in TMPGEnc and MainConcept are a pat on the back for Intel’s CPU engineers.
