Media Espresso 6.5
Media Espresso is a video conversion program that uses the graphics processing unit of the video card to speed up the conversion process. It is also capable of using Intel’s QuickSync technology available in the CPUs from this company. We converted a 449 MB, 1920x1080i, 18,884 kbps, MPG2 video file to a smaller 640×360, H.264, .MP4 file for viewing on a portable device such as an iPhone or iPod Touch.
Here the Core i3-2105 was 59% faster than the A8-3870K, and the Core i3-2100 was 56% faster than this CPU. Both CPUs from AMD achieved the same performance level. This test shows us how powerful the Intel QuickSync technology is.
