We used the DivX converter, a tool included in the DivX package, in order to measure the encoding performance using this codec. The DivX codec is capable of recognizing and using not only more than one CPU (i.e., more than one core) but also the SSE4 instruction set.
We converted a Full HD, six-minute long .mov video file into a .avi file, using the “HD 1080p” output profile.
The results below are given in seconds, so the lower the better.
On DivX encoding, the A4-5000 was 76% faster than the Sempron 2650 and 11% slower than the Celeron J1800. The installation of a Radeon R7 240 video card didn’t affect the performance in this test in a significant way.
