World Bench 5.0 - WME 9 & LameMT

World Bench 5.0 - Windows Media Encoder 9
Digital Video Encoding

The next World Bench 5 module we ran focused on Windows Media Encoder 9 encoding performance.




Once again, when comparing integrated graphics to the results recorded with the GeForce 7600GT installed, we see a delta of approximately 2.2%.  Looking at the Abit AL8's results, this was the closest test we've recorded thus far, with virtually identical results.

LameMT Encoding Tests
Breaking the Sound Barrier

For our next benchmark, we ran a custom Lame MT encoding test where we convert a large digital audio file to the MP3 format.  In this test, we created our own 223MB WAV file (a never-ending Grateful Dead jam) and converted it to the MP3 format using the multi-thread capable LAME MT application.




With Lame MT encoding, both systems were equally efficient at completing this processor intensive test.  In both single and multi-threaded tests, each test bed returned identical results.
