Intel Core i7-6950X Processor Review – 10-core Broadwell-E Benchmarked
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 Intel Core i7-6950XK is a very capable mainstream desktop processor as we were able to average 82.02 FPS on the render in stock form and 91.68 FPS when overclocked. That is a nice 11.8% improvement thanks to the overclock!
