Thanks for the results, guys. Just updated the db and will perform the update to the server later today.

@Platinum, thanks for the heads-up. I'll fix it. BTW, how in the world do you have access to all these old severs?

There are several hundred servers in our datacentre. Not all of them are Windows systems and unfortunately there aren't that many new ones to experiment with for video encoding except for the Quad X5450 systems atm. A few systems that were available/suited I was able to run the x264 HD benchmark on.

As for really old servers, here's a few from the past millennium.. Not something worth using for x264 encoding (I'm more interested in top of the line for fast transcode or realtime HD) but it's still impressive as comparison to see how CPU performance has improved over the years. So here are the results

2x Coppermine Pentium III @ 600Mhz:

This looks like the system I reported: Italy with AMD-8111 and then it should be Opteron 275 in the name.

Xeon (dual) Irwindale 1 90 nm 18.0 x 200 3.60 E7520 3-3-3-11 @ 400 1 DDR 2 Win Server x86 09:22 12.88 3.21 6:41:33 08:30 14.16 3.53 6:04:35 9.2%
The name should be just Xeon as this was a single CPU system. There was also a dual but that was reported OK.

big thanks to Graysky for doing this, this thread compared all the chips i was looking at as well as some old ones very comparable to what i was running already, benchmarked using the exact app that I had in mind for an upgrade. I started out encoding Divx 3.11 with flask, then divx using Nandub, then xvid, and now after looking through this thread I was convinced that CPU speeds had sufficiently increased (but still at a reasonable price) enough to upgrade and now i will start encoding in x264.

Based on reading this thread yesterday I went out and bought the parts for a computer today, unfortunatly for this thread, I only got a q6600 which is already well represented here, sorry I didn't get anything more exotic althou i nearly got a q9300 but other research showed that for encoding x264 it was essentially a waste of $70 AUD. Here are the results from my old rig thou.

And once again, thanks

Thanks... this is exactly the reason I made the benchmark in the first place...

Speaking of which, it might be time for you to add a third x264 build

With this massive revision, there have been dramatic speed changes on many processors, especially the Phenom (for which people are reporting a 20% speed improvement), but also the Pentium-M, Athlon 64, Core 1, and Penryn.

@dark - I wonder when that will get incorporated into one of these builds? As of today, 859-3 seems to be the most recent with a date of 29-May.

Sounds like I should slap the maintainer on those to get his arse moving...

You can find more often-updated builds at x264.nl.

It would be nice to have a newer "x264 HD Benchmark Ver. 2.1" with latest x264 again as 3rd benchmark because things have improved quite a lot.

To give you an idea I redid the benchmark with 747, 819 (from x264.nl) and 892 (from x264.nl):

@Platinum - Update the data. I would love to continue to add new builds, but the benchmark would take longer and longer to run with multiple versions of x264. For example, I have two in there now, if I add a third, and eventually a fourth, people won't wanna do it if the benchmark takes 30-40 min. Plus, it was pretty popular when I released it, but I can't see that many folks back filling data at this point.

The nice thing is the rank order of the systems hasn't really changed from the 0.58.747 to 0.59.819 and I suspect this will be true moving forward.

Because of the assembly changes the Phenom in particular will likely move up the list by a few dozen spaces at least... performance boosts were claimed up to 20% or more.

Hmm... lemme think about the best way to handle it. Will there be a better 'milestone' release in the future?

Current patches "in the cooker":

New CAVLC bitstream writer
Various mini-optimizations
CABAC encoding and RD optimizations
and a few other minor things

None of these will have any measurable effect on the order of CPUs in a benchmark.

So if you want, just grab the latest version and call it a "milestone" With lowres asm and denoising asm patched in, we've done all the assembly that'll be going in for a while (the next batch will be from Holger, a SoC student, in a few weeks probably). If you want, you could wait for that, though it won't be that significant either.

Hello to all

I just run the test on my new mac pro with boot camp, xp sp232bits.

Only 52% of the processor are use. And boot camp only see 2 G of my ram.
