I'm thinking of putting together a new system using an AMD 790GX motherboard and the AMD Athlon X2 7850 Kuma 2.8GHz CPU.
I need to keep the price down but I'm curious how fast it will be encoding?
Anyone have the 7750 or 7850 Kuma CPU ???

Guessing it's going to depend on the encoder and the OS.FB-DIMM are the real cause of global warming
this is my favorite thread!!food folks and fun
It is a very old program, and I am sure that is why ... but for benchmarking, this is probably no longer a viable program, then... although for comparison against older machines, it's good to use the same SW to compare results.
So in a nutshell, it's nothing to worry about.
Yes but it is a bit interesting to see what core architecture truly does for you when you don't have multi-threaded apps running.FB-DIMM are the real cause of global warming
ill be honest i was being sarcastic
i thought 10 sec on 2 out of 4 cores on an amd is actually decent and yes new benchie plzPhenII firstname.lastname@example.org - GA-790XTA-UD4 AM3 - 2x4 Corsair Vengeance@1600 - Radeon 5770 - Corsair 550VX - OCZ Agility 3 90GB WD BLACK 1TB - LiteOn 24x - Win 8 Preview - Logi G110+G500

I just ran a test with TMPGEnc Plus 2.5. I encoded a short DV video (no filtering) using Task Manager to set the CPU affinity to limit the number of cores. Here are the encoding times (Q6600 quad core CPU):
1 core: 288 seconds
2 cores: 143 seconds
3 cores: 131 seconds
4 cores: 131 seconds
I ran each encoding twice and got the same results (one was 1 second different). My interpretation: TMPGEnc is probably using 2 threads in the encoding engine and maybe a third thread to do the other processing (decompressing the DV video, converting YUV to RGB, etc.). Even if it is running 4 or more threads it is not using them effectively. It's basically a 2 thread program. Unless you know of some way to change the thread count (see cylcometric's post above).
