handbrake encoding results/benchmarks

post #1 of 8
Thread Starter 
curious to see what results people get using handbrake to encode videos, with different cpu's.

Im currently encoding a dvd, on my q9650 @3Ghz Stock. aprox, 42-45minutes encoding a full dvd to mp4 at original resolution, NOT ipod resolution.

Wondering what results i would get, if i overclock to 4Ghz

would love to see some results guys. thanks

Pretty sure my sig rig can tear through a full DVD in about 20 min or so, will run some benchmarks later today once I get it back together.

awesome! fingers crossed, if i can get just as good performance on 4Ghz i'll be super happy.

btw, does handbrake ever give you any issues, such as for example, i've encountered several times, that it fails to convert the file. All of my settings are set in place, and when i hit start, it encodes for a second, then spits out a file, thats only a mere 2.4kbs.

ill have to keep playing around with the settings i suppose.

My i7 at stock can rip/convert a DVD to iPod touch quality in about 15 minutes.

your sig says you have water cooling, why would you run stock frequencies when you have a water cooled system? 15min is a bit hard to believe mate, got some proof?

gah, ran into some major issues getting my sig rig back together, will be testing tomorrow though after loop is thoroughly bled and leak tested.

Depends on a lot of things. Region of the DVD, type of content on the DVD, bitrate of the DVD, and encoder settings...

You can't just compare benchmarks like that. It's like if someone did the Source benchmark at 640x480 and all Low, then someone at 1920x1200 and all High, but they both left those details out.

You both have to use the same DVD (or at the very least, a film with very little action), and the same settings in Handbrake.

I have an old i7 860 with a very mild over clock. I consider myself a heavy HandBrake user. I have put about 3000 feature films and 4000 documentaries on my NAS in mp4 format from DVDs and Blue Ray disks, all in original quality. I have been trying to learn as much as I can about building a PC for handbrake use, I don't know much but I'd like to share what I think I know and perhaps get a discussion going.

I've been planning a HEDT build for several months now but the delay of Haswell-E and x99 motherboards has given me time to research.

1) in a general way handbrake performs in a linear way with respect to clock speed and number of cores. So the more of either the better.

2) Apple folk report that the improvement is non-linear with threads greater than 9. Again precise details are sketchy.

3) I found this motherboard review

http://www.anandtech.com/show/7965/asus-z97-deluxe-nfc-wlc-review-thunderbolt-2/7

One might note under the table titled "Handbrake v0.9.9 Film CPU Only" that the difference between the 6 core i7-4960x and the 4 core i7-4770k is trivial, less than 1%. That test is at 640x266 not quite DVD quality; where the extra cores just do not help.

in contrast look at the chart labeled "Handbrake v0.9.9 2x4k CPU only" where the resolution was double UHD (3840x4320) where the table indicates that more cores do have at least a linear effect on encoding speed.

The author provides this enlightening thought: "The reasoning here is simple – when frames are small enough to fit into memory, the algorithm has more chance to apply work between threads and process the video quicker. Results shown are in seconds and time taken to encode."

Now we have two data points with no information in the middle. OK for DVD quality more than 8 cores helps very little. At resolutions double that of 4k more cores do have at least a linear contribution and all this is also tied into the quantity of memory, goal being to at least one frame in memory at one time.

This could be greatly simplified because I see only a few cases and only one of which is really interesting.

1) Handbrake for less than DVD quality - more than 4 core/ 8 thread is not helpful.

2) DVD quality (720x480) - more than 4 core/ 8 thread is not helpful.

3) Blue-Ray quality - missing data.

4) UHD (3840x2160) - data missing

5) double UHD (3840x4320) - get all the cores you can.

As I encode more and more Blue Ray disks to my NAS more information on case 3) would be very useful. I don't know the future of 4k (UHD) but I know I I do not expect to be using any 4k original content soon so it is not germane to my hardware choices right now.

But the reference "when frames are small enough to fit into memory" has encouraged me to build my next PC with 2x8GB memory, A total of 16GB system memory with empty slots to double system memory to 32GB.

I will cc Ian Cutress, because no other place anywhere on the internet as a information on the relationship between the number of useful cores and resolution, (clock speed being held constant) and perhaps the effect of memory space on different resolutions for handbrake, and I consider handbrake the driving force for HEDT with more than 4 cores on the desktop. What other popular consumer applications multithread as well as HandBrake?

The sub DVD quality case is trivial. What ever most folks have now is ample.

The DVD quality case is interesting mostly as data point, and because most of the video content (at least most of the 7000 videos on my NAS) are DVD quality. As I see it the most popular 4 core CPU manage DVD quality well enough.

Here is where it become very critical to me personalty, should I hold out for a 6/8 cores CPU to encode Blue ray quality content? That is the million dollar question because I see that as the bulk of my work for the next five years.

And I assume with UHD and Double UHD content we all need all the help we can get.

Any more research especially at the blue-ray quality level would be a great service to the PC community.
