Benchmark Results: Audio And Video Encoding
Apple iTunes likes Asus and MSI, even though these two boards had no factory-default overclock. Jetway’s last-place position is likely due to the Turbo Boost malfunction of its pre-release firmware, while Gigabyte’s slower-than-average results would be much more difficult to explain.
Another two-way tie occurs in HandBrake, but this time it’s with ECS and Biostar.
Gigabyte might have fallen behind in iTunes, but it surges ahead in Xvid encoding.
A six-way tie in MainConcept reflects what we expected to happen in every encoding application.
