Handbrake

HandBrake is an open-source, GPL-licensed, multiplatform, multithreaded video transcoder, available for MacOS X, Linux and Windows. It is popular today as it allows you to transcode multiple input video formats to h.264 output format and is highly multithreaded.

We used Big Buck Bunny as our input file, which has become one of the world standards for video benchmarks. The 1080P clip was used in the MP4 format and the workload is encoded into h.264 output format using the preset – high profile. This benchmark test was setup to give you an idea of how these processors can take a 1080p BD rip and turn it into a 1080p H.264. HandBrake version 0.9.9 was used for benchmarking and we highly encourage you to download this MP4 clip and compare your system to ours with Handbrake!

Benchmark Results: HandBrake version 0.9.9 showed that the AMD A10-7870K APU was about 9% faster at transcoding versus the AMD A10-7800 APU, but again still slower than a Core i7-920 processor. The Core i7-920 processor can be found on eBay for around $45 all day, every day, so the AMD A10-7870K at $149 might be a tough sell to those looking to do video encoding!

    Is this review a copy pasta from Toms Hardware? Comparing a Budget APU with a gaming processor with a dedicated video card is right up their alley. LOL

    Good job comparing an APU to i7s.
