[AMD] Exposing the Phantom x86 Bottleneck - Page 5

post #41 of 42
Completely true, yet well known. Of course actual CPU power (x86 task wise) is far more than we actually need, especially since the movement to a society where HD video is supposed to be viewable on all devices at any time.

Theres no bias in that.
Not towards the i5, and I'm sure GPU transcoding isn't nearly as good. However, those may be the only programs that support the quick sync, it doesn't mean they are what you would use for GPU based encoding. I actually used to be into the movie ripping scene, way back when all we had were crappy CLI programs. What programs you use are incredibly important, not to mention matrix size, bit rate, everything. There might be problems with GPU transcoding that shows up in certain bit rates and settings only to be avoided with other settings (can't be tested, or it wasn't in the article). That is the one huge problem with doing these tests using programs like MediaConverter.

"Where image quality isn’t consistent however is between transcoding methods in either application."

Further more, do you know what is wrong with that sentence? Can you tell me? Not only can I point out flaws in the reasoning behind the article, I can point out TERRIBLE grammar. No offense but that screams unprofessional.
