High Quality MPEG-4 Encoding

 

For this test we used Cyberlink Power Producer in conjunction with DIVX 6.0Pro to encode "The Matrix" MPEG2 down to a MPEG-4 High resolution video file.

 

The Cyberlink software comes with its own time clock to indicate the time taken to encode the movie as well as average CPU usage and average FPS during the encode. We used DIVX 6.0 due to its support for Dual Core CPUs as well as Intel SSE3 and Hyper Threading.

 

 

 

 

Media Encoding is still best handled by an Intel CPU, but the difference isn't much at all. In fact we wouldn't really recommend any of the low-end CPU's for daily encoders.
