CloneDVD is a DVD movie backup utility. You can copy all of your DVD movie collections even those CSS-encrypted and region-protected discs. Without special setting, just one click the mouse, CloneDVD will automatically remove CSS protection and region codes during copying. Perfect 1:1 copy, without warning & watermark as original disc, the copied disc works well with most popular home DVD player. For this benchmark I used AnyDVD and CloneDVD to make a backup of the retail movie SAW 2. CloneDVD ripped the entire movie from the disc and made a 4.6GB ISO file on the hard drive with the movie files. To use this as a benchmark utility I measured the total time in seconds that it took to create the ISO/UDF image. A NEX ND-3550A DVD R/RW & CD-R/RW drive was used on all the systems, which is a recent model 16X optical drive for those not familiar with the model number.
Results: Ripping SAW 2 to a 4.6GB ISO/UDF image is a real world benchmark that produced some interesting results that showed steady improvement over the years. The Athlon XP 1800+ system with 1GB of DDR1 2-2-2 memory took nearly 27 minutes to complete the task while the Athlon 64 X2 6400+ with 1GB DDR2 4-4-4 memory just over 14 minutes.
