    Updated the Intel table. It now contains several Yorkfield ES chips including:

    Xeon E5330 (Dual board)
    Q9550
    Q9350

    x264 Benchmark Results Updated

    graysky had just updated the Intel performance table. It now contains several quad-core Yorkfield ES chips including Xeon E5330 (Dual CPU - 8 cores), Q9550 and Q9350.

    The x264 benchmark measures how fast your machine can encode a short, DVD quality MPEG-2 video clip into a high-quality x264 video clip. It will give you results in FPS that can be used to compare the performance of different CPUs and different CPU settings.

    Here's a quote from the article :-

    Updated the tables with another 45 nm chip: the QX9650 -- both at stock levels and @ overclocked to 4.2 GHz! With it, and the others (Xeon E5330 (Dual board), Q9550, and Q9350) there is now data on 4 different 45 nm chips.

    One thing that I found striking about these new chips is that they are only marginally faster than their 65 nm counterparts when encoding x264 (about 5-6 % faster with all other factors being equal or close to equal). Have a look at the general trends table for the Kentsfield vs. Yorkfield comparison at the official host.

    Hey guys tried this out and maybe I am missing something or its too early and I haven't had enough Java yet :cool:


    I copied the file DGDecode.dll to the C:\Program Files\AviSynth 2.5\plugins directory as indicated in the instructions. I run the program and enter the file name when prompted but when I hit enter the screen just closes.

    Running XP Pro SP2 any ideas ?

    There is a FAQ... see the first question. I'm guessing your not running it from c:\work2

    Ahh OK will give that a try THX for the feedback :D


    EDIT: That worked like a charm now just need to find time to run it ;)

    Well ran this dead stock for reference on this old Prescott 2.8 (21x133) let it run after I went to bed. The numbers I am sure won't impress anyone but like the test. I will set things back up the way I normally run and run it again tonight if I get a chance :)

    As promised Graysky ran this again with the moderate O/C settings I use with this board (multiplier is locked). Still playing with memory timings and that will keep me busy until my upgrade .. should be picking up the mobo in the next week or two :)

    (Both test runs were using XP SP2)
