7. Benchmarks - page 1
MAXON CINEBENCH is based on MAXON's award-winning animation software, CINEMA 4D, which is used extensively by studios and production houses worldwide for 3D content creation. The software runs several tests on your computer to measure the performance of the main processor and the graphics card under real world circumstances.
The CineBench R10 benchmark uses all the available CPU cores. The Shuttle SP-45H7 gave the second best scores here.
- x264 HD Benchmark
x264 Benchmark utilizes the next generation of Video Encoding benchmarks with support for x264 codec that is considered to be one of the most demanding for Video applications. Simply put, it is a reproducible measure of fast your machine can encode a short, HD video clip to a high quality x264 video file. It's nice because everyone running it will use the identical video clip and software. The video encoder (x264.exe) reports a fairly accurate internal benchmark (frames per second) for each pass of the video encode and it also uses multi-core processors very efficiently.
The benchmark procedure is very simple. You just run a batch file that encodes the same file four times. There software offers two different results for each pass of encoding. The average performance for both passes are found below:
The Shuttle SP-45H7 was the slower system here mainly due to the low memory divider we set.
- TMPGEnc 4 Xpress
TMPGEnc converts *.AVI files to MPEG1, the format which is used in VideoCDs. Using a variety of options in TMPGEnc, you can compress your video file in high quality. TMPGEnc enables you to adjust bitrate, quantize matrix, GOP structure, interlacing and many other parameters so that you can create the most appropriate movie file depending on your needs.
For our test we uses a 350MB AVI file encoded with the Xvid (Mpeg4 ASP) codec. We used the build in Mpeg4 ASP/AVC MediaEncoder profile and by present the average FPS for each system:
