    Hexus HandBrake charts - who has the greatest multi-threaded POWER!!??

    Let see how various CPUs do at HandBrake video encoding!

    HandBrake 0.9.5 needs to be used:

    http://handbrake.fr/downloads.php

    Videos to encode:

    1.)Tron:Legacy 1080p trailer

    http://www.chip.de/downloads/HD-Trai..._37505058.html

    296.6MB MOV file

    2.)Splice 1080p trailer

    http://pdl.warnerbros.com/wbmovies/s...lr_1_1080P.wmv

    336MB WMV file

    3.)Big Buck Bunny 1080p

    http://www.bigbuckbunny.org/index.php/download/

    886MB MP4 file

    Operating system: Windows 2000/XP/Vista/7

    Conditions: Regular preset(Normal)

    Output file type: MKV

    You will find average FPS during the encode in the encode log(activity windows). The total time for the encode can also be worked out too.

    Also state what system specifications you are using and how many CPU threads are being used.

    Make sure you set HandBreak priority to high in the Tools menu and shut down programmes like Steam,Word and Firefox.

    Edit!!

    There seems to be a utility to close down any unnecessary processes!!

    My results so far:
    1.)Tron:Legacy MOV to MKV.85MB file. Average fps=16.013634 fps and total time taken is 3 minutes and 46 seconds.

    2.)Splice WMV to MKV.157MB file. Average fps=10.516399 fps and total time taken is 5 minutes and 16 seconds.

    System

    Core i3 2100. All 4 threads used
    4GB 1600MHZ DDR3 RAM
    H67 chipset
    HD5670
    60GB OCZ Vertex SSD(input files on SSD)
    250GB Spinpoint P(output files on hard drive)

    Re: Hexus HandBrake charts - who has the greatest multi-threaded POWER!!??

    OK, FYI it's probably a good idea to close programs like Firefox before benchmarking for more accurate results. I gained a small improvement having done this. Results as follows (video, fps, approx size). It's probably best to not bother with MD5 as it seems to vary, maybe there are some timestamps stored in the encoded file.

    BBB 31.95fps 133MB
    Splice 20.16fps 157MB
    Tron 29.64fps 85.6MB

    Edit: So far, our results look in line with the benchmarks except for BitTech. Also bear in mind that I'm using a 1055T, not the faster versions used in those benchmarks. Hmm...

    I had my browser open. I will repeat them with the browser closed.

    Edit!!

    Those Bit-tech results are just weird!

    I presume if I add 100MHz to both clocks of my 1090T i get a 1100T?

    I'll try and do this in a bit, when I get bored...

    Yeah, I didn't really pay it any attention originally but it does eat a few CPU cycles. Or maybe that's just because I have a fair few tabs open...
    Either way I don't think the differences make any difference in the grand scheme of things, about 0.3fps in my case. But it's nice to be as accurate as possible.

    Re: Hexus HandBrake charts - who has the greatest multi-threaded POWER!!??

    As mentioned the process priority could really do with setting to high in the handbrake system options, then things like running programs etc won't make much of a difference.

    If we set the priority to realtime this should be the best possible result for the system??

    Problem is real time takes over all processes even vital windows ones, not a good idea really from memory lol.

    is it possible to run this in safe mode? minimizing the chances of unwanted progs open


    not sure tbh, just a thought
    We're only here for the Banter - The Luvvies - Chewin' The Fat

    Violence and Lubrication is the solution to fixing everything, if it still doesn't work, you need more lubrication.

    Re: Hexus HandBrake charts - who has the greatest multi-threaded POWER!!??

    I ran the priority on high for the Splice trailer encode and I got 12.734809 fps. Realtime made no difference. Steam and the web browser were shut down. The Tron:Legacy trailer was encoded at average encoding speed for job is 18.689077 fps.

    I think we should run the encodes on a high prority.

    Yeah high priority and not using the system is probably the best thing to do. Realtime can cause instability and may be a bit frightening to some users as even the cursor may lock up until the encode has completed.
