Asus Striker II Extreme 790i DDR3 Motherboard
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.
7-Zip is an open source winzip-style file compression utility that has the ability to compress and decompress many file formats including its 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.
While the Striker II Extreme certainly couldn't separate itself from the rest of the motherboards in the ViMark encoding tests, the extra bandwidth and lower latency memory results seen on the previous page certainly gave the board quite a substantial lead when it came to 7-Zip compression.
