LAME MT MP3 Encoding Test
In our custom LAME MT MP3 encoding test, we convert a large WAV file to the MP3 format, which is a very popular scenario. In this test, we created our own 223MB WAV file (a never-ending Grateful Dead jam) and converted it to 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.
With our custom LAME MT benchmark the Wildcat's performance matched our in-house Athlon 64 FX-60 test bed exactly. The fastest of the systems was the Core 2 Duo E6700 while the Athlon 64 X2 4800+ came in as the slowest.
