System Builder Marathon, Sept. 2011: $1000 Enthusiast PC

Benchmark Results: Media Encoding Applications

We've seen in the past that it's difficult to quantify some of the responsiveness benefits of an SSD. These tests are very much CPU-constrained, so you don't end up seeing storage help improve performance by much.

As a result, the benchmark scores map very closely to the previous quarter's System Builder Marathon configuration.
