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.
In this update, we made another minor change to the batch script used in the benchmark. It does not affect the results. If you download this latest version, just replace the old files with the new ones.
We also improved the results table by adding the CPU type, in addition to colour-coding standard clock speeds and overclocked processors.
Finally, we added the benchmark results of the AMD Phenom II X4 940 Black Edition (overclocked to 3.6 GHz), the AMD Athlon X2 BE-2350 and the Intel Atom N270 processors. Check them out!
