Media Encoding

 

For our media encoding testing we used three separate programs to turn a standard MPEG-2 DVD quality into different encodes. We used Mainconcept as its design supports SMP, XMPEG as it has the latest support for SSE3 as well as Windows Media Encoder to convert to the new WMV format that Microsoft it trying to endorse.

 

Less is better.

 

- Mainconcept MPEG Encoder

 

 

Mainconcept shows the Dual CPU platform is able to take some extra time off with the addition of the extra CPU.

 

- XMPEG

 

 

With both Dual CPU and twice the SSE3 going the Dual Xeon begins to show its true colours.

 

- Windows Media Encoder 9

 

 

Again the extra CPU power begins to shine. Here we can see that the AMD Athlon 64 core also is not one for high-end data transfers.
