x264HD 5.0 Test

Tech ARP’s x264 HD Benchmark comprises the Avisynth video scripting engine, an x264 encoder, a sample 1080P video file, and a script file that actually runs the benchmark. The script invokes four two-pass encoding runs and reports the average frames per second encoded as a result. The script file is a simple batch file, so you could edit the encoding parameters if you were interested, although your results wouldn’t then be comparable to others.

This is another example of a useful benchmark that’s based on real-world code. I like encoding benchmarks since they’re one of the few tests that can measure a real-world use of the power of modern multi-core processors. I like this particular benchmark since it’s the best “overclock killer” I’ve seen: systems that will run most stress tests all day long with a given set of overclock settings will crash on this benchmark.

The Core i7-4770K has an advantage here over the Core i7-3820: about 10% in Pass 1, and more than 20% in Pass 2.

Let’s run some graphics and gaming tests next.

    Reminds me of my 1st computer. A Dell of some sort. Came with the original version of Windows XP Home Edition. I kept that lemon just long enough to learn how to build a real computer, then I gave it away.
    As in free. Non-gratis. And never, ever, mention to anyone I gave it to you, or ever owned it kind of a deal.
    At 1500 bucks less, this Lenovo would make a good stocking stuffer for a 3 year old you didn’t especially like. Like that red headed, left handed 3rd cousin everybody worries about.
    But, I’m being kind.
    Take the $1699 this thing costs, go to your favorite e-tailer and piece together whatever your money can buy, then build it. Many, many sites have builders guides to show you how. It’s way simple, educational and rewarding.
    You’ll be ecstatic that you did.
