Using Cyberlink MediaEspress 6.5 we're able to test the encoding of a 3.5GB MKV file down to a 1.2GB iPad friendly MP4 one. At our stock speeds you can see over 3 minutes is shaved from the encoding time when we turn on Intel Quick Sync.
Overclocking our CPU sees a big improvement in encoding times. You can see that at 5.05GHz with Quick Sync off we're able to encode faster than when the CPU is at default speeds and Quick Sync is on. Of course at 5.05GHz if we turn Quick Sync On encoding time comes down to just over 8 minutes. This is almost half the time of our stock clocked, Quick Sync off test.
Looking at something older like Resident Evil 5 which runs in DX10, you can see that the onboard graphics indeed struggles to offer us playable FPS at even quite a low 1280 x 800 resolution. We still wait for the day that onboard video can offer us something that's really playable; today isn't that day.
