x264/MKV Video Test Clips
MKV (Matroska) is a very popular online multimedia container
used for high definition content, usually using x264 (a free, open source
H.264 encoder) for video. The clips were taken from two longer videos
the most demanding one minute portions were used. To play them we use Media
Player Classic Home Cinema which by default utilizes DXVA (DirectX Video
Acceleration) with supported GPUs. For graphics chips that do not support
hardware acceleration for either codec, the software decoder CoreAVC is
used to render using CPU power alone.
1080p | 24fps | ~14mbps
x264 1080p: Spaceship is a 1080p x264 clip encoded from the
Blu-ray version of an animated short film. It features a hapless robot
trying to repair a lamp on a spaceship.
As we've reviewed similar processors and graphics chips to those inside this fanless system, our test procedures will only involve measuring the system's power consumption, exterior temperatures, and noise levels (to confirm silence) at various states. Measurements are made when the system is idle, playing high definition video, encoding audio and video, and when running synthetic tests like Prime95 and FurMark to stress the system to its limits as worst case scenarios.
All nonessential pre-installed software is removed prior to testing, and certain
services and features like Superfetch and System Restore are disabled to prevent
them from affecting our results. Aero glass is left enabled if supported. We
also make note if energy saving features like Cool'n'Quiet and SpeedStep do
not function properly.
