Windows Media Encoder 9

 

In this test we take a 2 minute 1080p video and encode it into a 720p video. Scoring is determined by the amount of time taken for the task to complete. Lower is better.

 

The video used for this encoding test is The Magic of Flight (IMAX) which is readily available for download on Microsoft's HD Content Showcase page.

The overclocked Core 2 Duo with 6MB of cache does a really good job with encoding and compression. The numbers produced in these tests are some of highest I have seen from a system builder to date.

 

RightMark Audio Analyser

The above breakdown from the results displayed in RightMark speaks for itself. The lowest rating comes from the THD to Noise ratio, yet it still scored Good. You may notice a small amount of distortion when you run the audio to a home amplifier with very good home audio or studio speakers running at ear blistering levels, but other than that the onboard audio from the GIGABYTE motherboard is considered very good to excellent.
