MSI mPC 51PV Small Form Factor PC
LAME MT MP3 Encoding
In our custom LAME MT MP3 encoding test, we convert a large WAV file to the MP3 format, which is a very popular scenario that many end users work with on a day-to-day basis to provide portability and storage of their digital audio content.
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 in single and multi-thread modes. Processing times are recorded below. Once again, shorter times equate to better performance.
Our custom LAME MT MP3 encoding benchmark showed no variation between the two AMD-powered platforms. The Intel rigs were faster overall, but he MSI mPC 51PV performed identically to Asus' nForce 590 SLI-based M2N32-SLI.
