This is the improved version of the x264 HD Benchmark 2.0 benchmark which has become a standard CPU benchmark for Tech ARP as well as many other hardware enthusiasts.
The new x264 HD Benchmark 3.0 ups the ante by using the latest r1342 x264 encoder as well as other changes under the hood. This makes the x264 HD Benchmark 3.0 the new best tool for testing the full capabilities of modern multi-core processors.
Do note that due to the changes, the results from x264 HD Benchmark 3.0 are NOT comparable with results from older versions of the benchmark.
In addition to the release of the benchmark, we will be compiling benchmark results for this new version. So please contribute your new benchmark results to this project!
This major revision upgrades the x264 encoder to the release 1342 and CPU-Z 1.52.2.
There have also been many changes under the hood. As such, results from this version cannot be used to compare with any other version of the benchmark.
