AMD Phenom 9600 Black Edition Quad Core CPU
Compression & Encoding Benchmarks
ViMark is the latest addition to the OC3D motherboard testing process and a relatively new benchmarking application in general. Designed to take the inaccuracies and guesswork out of measuring the time taken to encode video files, ViMark produces easily comparable and consistent results for encoding raw video into Windows Media, Quicktime, AVI and Gif formats. As always, a total of 5 benchmark runs were performed with the highest and lowest scores removed and an average calculated from the remaining 3 scores.
ViMark shows us that the Core2Quad generally beats out the slower Phenom CPU and often by a margin.
7-Zip is an open source winzip-style file compression utility that has the ability to compress and decompress many file formats including it's own .7z compression scheme. 7-Zip also comes complete with its own benchmarking utility for gauging the compression and decompression speed of the system that it is installed on.
Again 7-Zip shows that the horsepower and architectural differences mean that the Core 2 Quad CPU gives us considerably higher benchmark scores.
