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.
This workload is a 43-second HDV. The input file is encoded in Mpeg
format. Video encode parameters are 23.9mbps, 1440*1080, 29.9fps. Audio
encode parameters are 384 kbps, 48kHz, 2channel, mpeg audio version 1
layer 2. File size is 128MB. The workload is encoded into h.264 output
format using the preset – high profile. HandBrake version 0.9.5 was used
HandBrake version 0.9.5 software showed that the Intel Core i3-2120 was able to perform about 7% faster than the Intel Core i3-2105 processor thanks to the extra clock speed. The Intel Core i7-2600k has four more threads for the work unit and a higher clock speed, so it destroyed the other two Intel dual-core processors with just four threads available for work to be done.
