Handbrake, Blender, POV-Ray, CoronaRender, 7-Zip, and WebXPRT
Handbrake is up next, and we are transcoding a 4K MKV to MP4. The Aorus Xtreme does well in this timed benchmark; however, it is a solid 10 seconds behind the Taichi. The Maximus Extreme is much closer at a roughly four-second difference.
Blender renders of the classroom scene shows the Aorus Xtreme gaining some ground. Thew Maximus Extreme is leading the pack, but it is very close.
7-Zip is an open-source and free compression application. It works well with multi-threading and also can see gains from clock speed as well.
Moving to the 7-Zip compression suite, the aorus Xtreme once again falls in line behind the Maximus Extreme and the Taichi, with the latter being the top spot. Once again, we see a deficit of over ten seconds, and actually closer to fifteen seconds this time.
WebXPRT is a browser-based test, and we like this test as this is one of the areas not many think to test. This also happens to be a real-world usage test that can be impacted by the mitigations which have recently rolled through and were patched.
WebXPRT sees the Aorus Xtreme at the bottom with the Taichi. The Maximus Extreme and Sueprmicro as the chart-topper pull a noticeable lead in this one.
