x264 HD Encoding
The x264 v3.04 benchmark measures how fast a system can encode a short, DVD quality MPEG-2 video clip into a high-quality H.264 HD video clip. The application reports the compression results in frames per second for each pass of the video encoding process, and it is threaded so it can take advantage of the additional resources afforded by multi-core processors.
Simply put, it is a reproducible measure of fast your machine can encode a short HD-quality video clip into a high quality x264 video file. It's nice because everyone running it will use the same video clip and software. The video encoder (x264.exe) reports a fairly accurate internal benchmark (in frames per second) for each pass of the video encode and it also uses multi-core processors very efficiently. All these factors make this an ideal benchmark to compare different processors and systems to each other.
Benchmark Results: The x264 HD benchmark is said to be an ideal for a because the application reports fairly accurate compression results for each pass of the video encoding process, and it uses multi-core processors very efficiently. Both of our processors are great at doing this work, but the i5-750 again leads the way even against the higher clocked i5-661.
