X264 HD Video Encoding Benchmark

The X264 HD Video Encoding Benchmark is a great test to see how fast a system can encode a HD quality video into a x264 video.  Every test run uses the same video clip and settings, making it a prime candidate for an easily reproducible test.  The results are presented in frames per second for each pass of the encoding process.

Taking a quick look at the details behind the ECS Z97-PK Deluxe test, Pass 1 did rather well, while Pass 2 took a bit longer to run.

Benchmark Results:  As you might expect, the Intel based system on the ECS Z97-PK Deluxe easily outperforms the AMD system.  While obviously a more powerful CPU would increase these numbers, for a low cost motherboard and CPU combination, the numbers are still respectable.
