CyberLink Power Director produces video files for creating DVD, DivX, XviD and WMV files for use on your PC. Using the built in software we encode files from MPEG2 (DVD) format to DivX format and use the time taken, average FPS and CPU usage for our benchmarking usage.

 

 

 

 

Encoding our MPEG files over to DIVX takes a huge toll on the processor and when the clock speeds go up, encode time and CPU utilisation goes down.
