HD Media Playback and Encoding
Core i3-2120: 1080p Flash Video

Cyberlink's Media Show Espresso is a video conversion tool that imports various video media files types and converts them to other standard video formats for publication, distribution and / or streaming. In this test, we take a 184MB high definition 1080p AVCHD video clip and compress and convert it to a iPhone 4 H.264-encoded .MP4 file. Times are measured in minutes:seconds with lower times representing faster throughput in the video conversion process.
** The Phenom II X4 980 System Used A Radeon HD 6570 Discrete GPU
The A-Series APUs got clobbered in our MediaShow Espresso video encoding benchmarks. Notice, performance is lower with GPU acceleration enabled, versus encoding on the CPU cores alone.
