AMD 790GX Head to Head

Encoding/Compressing 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.
  
 
 
 
Results Observations
 
Totally against the run of play the MSI turns up trumps in the media encoding and compression benchmarks beating the Gigabyte by the skin of its teeth in all benchmarks. Bizarrely, the better CPU and Memory scores did little to help the Gigabyte in this series of tests. Let's see if the hard drive benchmarks can decide on a clear winner.
