Let see how various CPUs do at HandBrake video encoding!
HandBrake 0.9.5 needs to be used:
Videos to encode:
1.)Tron:Legacy 1080p trailer
296.6MB MOV file
2.)Splice 1080p trailer
336MB WMV file
3.)Big Buck Bunny 1080p
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.
There seems to be a utility to close down any unnecessary processes!!
