DivX Helium codec beta

Posted on Wednesday, June 15 2005 @ 13:14 CEST by LSDsmurf

DivX Helium codec demonstrates our latest research into processor optimization, achieving encoding times up to twice as fast as DivX 6 in the highest quality (Insane) mode when run on dual core, HT and SMP CPUs.

While everyone has been extremely busy at DivX, fine tuning the DivX Media Format and getting ready for the DivX 6.0 release, the codec team, who finished the codec related work months ago, found the time to start working on the next codec release. The preliminary results are just mind blowing. In fact, the results are so impressive that we couldn’t wait to share them with you. Although it’s highly unusual to release two different version of the same product on the same day, that’s exactly what we decided to do. The speed gain is so incredible that we didn’t think it would be fair to keep it to ourselves.

Please note that this release takes advantage of multi-thread capable systems, like SMP multi-processors, HyperThreaded and Dual Core processors. You will only see marginal improvement with single-thread systems.
