Audio & Video Encoding Performance

 

Here's a CPU-Z screenshot showing some detailed specs of what's running under the VOT125's hood:

We'll be running the ViewSonic VOT125 through the standard net-top test regime here at TweakTown, which includes iTunes Encoding and Media Transcoding.

 

Please note that no 3DMark or game tests are included for our net-top reviews since they are not powerful enough to run the graphics-intensive tests. All systems are tested "as is", which means operating systems and drivers can and do vary and some come pre-installed with applications that may or may not affect performance.

 

Any anti-virus or security applications are disabled and uninstalled before any testing is started as they can affect test numbers.

 

For the iTunes encoding test we took the White Stripes - Under Great White Northern Lights album in MP3 format and encode it to AAC format using iTunes and time the results with a stopwatch.

 

All tests are performed with the system in High Performance mode with minimum CPU set to 100%.

The VOT125 took 197 seconds to complete this task, which is a bit slower than it takes on many of the laptops we've tested, but is far faster than the majority of netbooks and net-tops we've previously reviewed.

 

For the movie-encoding test, we took the Microsoft Magic of Flight VC-1 WMV (1080p HD) video with six-channel audio and transcode it to XviD (1080p HD) with LAME MP3 two-channel audio and an MP4 container using MediaCoder 0.7.3.4616 32-bit edition.

 

All tests are performed with the system in High Performance mode with minimum CPU set to 100%.

The VOT125 took 716 seconds to complete this task and the same comparisons hold true with the iTunes encoding test.
