HP All-in-One 200-5020 Desktop Computer - Performance

HP's AIO 200-5020 is a low priced all-in-one that looks to carry a good amount of horsepower and features. Let's see if it can stand out amongst the AIO crowd.

Audio and Video Encoding Performance

 

Below you get a look at the main screen CPU-Z screenshot to give you a look at the actual specifications of the unit that we will be testing.

The HP AIO 200-5020 will be run through the standard AIO test regime here at TweakTown. This includes iTunes Encoding and Media Transcoding.

 

Please note that no 3DMark or game tests are included for our AIO 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 I take Stone Temple Pilots - Core CD 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 HP AIO 200-5020 performed very well despite the fact that it uses the older Pentium processor tech. The AIO came in second to the Acer AZ5700-U2112 AIO I tested recently, but was well ahead in this test compared to the other AIOs that have been across my desk.

 

For the movie encoding test I take the Microsoft Magic of Flight VC-1 WMV video with six channel audio (1080p HD) and transcode it to XviD (1080p HD) with LAME MP3 two channel audio and a 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 HP AIO 200-5020 was again in second place overall in my movie encoding benchmark. The machine was a distant second but was able to encode the movie over a minute and a half faster than the third place AIO machine.
